Andy Priaulx Moves To TUDOR United SportsCar Championship With BMW

1 Mins read

Andy Priaulx will race for BMW Team RLL in the inaugural season of the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship.

Priaulx, who has raced with BMW since the 2003, had a disappointing time in DTM, never making it into the top five in his two years in the series.

“The DTM was a fantastic experience for me,” said Priaulx. “I had some great moments – and went out in style with my third place on the grid at the season finale in Hockenheim. However, I did miss standing on the podium.

“That is something I am now determined to achieve on a regular basis again with BMW Team RLL in the TUDOR Championship. I still know the guys from my victory at the 12 Hours of Sebring in 2011 and am looking forward to this new and exciting challenge.”

Priaulx began his partnership with BMW in the 2003 European Touring Car Championship, finishing third overall before taking the title in the following year. From there Priaulx moved up to the World Touring Car Championship with the BMW team, taking a hat-trick of championship victories between 2005 and 2007.

The three-time World Champion is no stranger to endurance racing, having spent a year in the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup in 2011, taking a win at the Sebring 12 Hours and podium results at the 1000km of Spa and the 24 Hours of Le Mans. 2012 and 2013 saw Priaulx race for BMW in the DTM, but never made a major impact on the series.
