FALL-LINE HEADS TO SEASON FINALE AT ROAD ATLANTA IN CTSC

Buffalo Grove, IL (October 1, 2015)- Fall-Line Motorsports will compete in the final round of the 2015 Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge (CTSC) this weekend as part of the Petit Le Mans race weekend at Road Atlanta. The 2015 champion will be crowned on Friday, October 2 and sadly, the #46 Fall-Line BMW is not in contention to defend their 2014 Grand Sport Championship.
Drivers Ashley Freiberg and Trent Hindman have had a trying season but still managed to score seven top-ten finishes and five top-fives including two podiums in 2015. This race weekend could potentially be the last with the BMW M3 E92 chassis which has served as the race car of choice for Fall-Line in CTSC since 2009. The team finished second at last year’s race on their way to winning the Championship and the BMW has been historically very strong at the 2.54-mile track.
#46 IHG Rewards Club/ Trim-Tex Drywall Products/ Fall-Line Motorsports BMW driver quotes:
Trent Hindman: “It’s pretty amazing to think that 2015 is coming to an end. The year went by unbelievably quick, but luckily we still have one more excellent opportunity to challenge for a good result this weekend. I love Road Atlanta, and our Fall-Line, Trim-Tex, IHG Rewards Club, Top 1 Oil M3 was very strong here last year. I always look forward to getting back to work and this weekend will be business as usual, but we have only one objective – win.”
Ashley Freiberg: “I can’t believe we have already come to the last race of the season, it has gone by so fast! I have always enjoyed racing at Road Atlanta and am looking forward to this week! We should be strong here, and it looks like there could be a chance of rain, which I always enjoy racing in as it equals out the playing field! Regardless of the weather, it’s time to bring our IHG Rewards Club/ Trim-Tex BMW home a win!”
Michael Harvey, Team Manager: “It isgreat to be back at Road Atlanta where the Fall-Line Motorsports BMW clinched the CTSC championship last year. Although we are not in championship contention this year, the IHG Rewards Club / Trim-Tex BMW is definitely gunning for victory to cap off the season. Trent and Ashley have driven very well this year and their growth as drivers has been remarkable to watch. A huge thank you to all at Fall-Line Motorsports, IHG Rewards Club, Trim-Tex and BMW for their unconditional support this season.”
Qualifying takes place Thursday, October 1 at 4:45p ET. The 2.5-hour race will take place Friday, October 2 at 12:15p ET and will be streamed live on IMSA.com.

DISAPPOINTING FINISH FOR FALL-LINE AT COTA

Buffalo Grove, IL (September 23, 2015) – Fall-Line Motorsports drivers Ashley Freiberg and Trent Hindman were hoping to repeat the 2014 for victory for the CTSC team at Circuit of the Americas (COTA) this past weekend but luck was not on their side and the duo started and finished the race in seventh position. With only one race remaining in the 2015 season, time is running out for the reigning Championship-winning team as the series travels to Road Atlanta in just over one week.
Freiberg started the race from seventh position and was running eighth before pitting. Hindman got in the car with 1.5 hours remaining in the race and made it up to P4 with just 35 minutes to go. He was given a drive-through penalty for avoidable contact as he was chasing down the Camaros and Mustang. Track temperatures reached over 100 degrees and driving conditions inside the car were stifling. Hindman brought the #46 BMW M3 home in P7.
#46 IHG Rewards Club/ Trim-Tex Drywall Products/ Fall-Line Motorsports BMW driver quotes:
Trent Hindman: “I’m really proud of the Fall-Line Motorsports crew and the effort they put in all weekend long, working in the 100-degree heat. At the end of the day I accept full responsibility for the contact that led to our drive through penalty, but I absolutely was pushing as hard as possible to get to the front and sometimes contact will happen. The Trim-Tex, IHG Rewards Club, Top 1 Oil BMW M3 was more than capable of getting us a good result as always. Ultimately the race didn’t go our way, but we’ll focus forward to finish the year on a high at Road Atlanta.”
Ashley Freiberg: “It was a tough race for us, but I am proud of everyone at Fall-Line for pulling through to a 7th place finish! Not the result we were looking for, but I am ready to bounce back at Road Atlanta in a couple of weeks.”
Michael Harvey, Fall-Line Motorsports Team Manager: “It was definitely a character-building day for the Fall-Line/ IHG Rewards Club/ Trim-Tex BMW. Once again we had a strong race car in which to tackle the grueling conditions. With temperatures touching 100 degrees we had great pace and efficient pit stops but unfortunately a drive through penalty for an on-track incident put pay to a podium run. Both Trent and Ashley drove great stints in trying conditions but COTA wasn’t so kind to us this year. We very much look forward to Road Atlanta in two weeks and finishing the season off with a strong run. As always a big thank you goes out to our amazing partners IHG Rewards Club, Trim-Tex and BMW.”

Lessons Learned at 24 Hours of Zolder; COTA Up Next for BMW Motorsport Junior Hindman

Sept. 1, 2015 — The 24 Hours of Zolder proved a valuable experience for BMW Motorsport Junior Trent Hindman. The 19-year-old American co-drove the No. 246 BMW M235i Racing with fellow Juniors Victor Bouveng and Louis Delétraz and head instructor Dirk Adorf, finishing 15th overall and ninth in the BMW M235i Racing Cup class.
“Overall, the experience of doing the Zolder 24 Hour as a member of the BMW Motorsport Junior Program was incredible”, said Hindman, who drove the final stint of the race. “The amount of information I learned was truly unbelievable and I cannot thank Nico, Dirk, Sebastian, and everyone from BMW Motorsport enough for the opportunity. The Walkenhorst crew was on point for the entire race. I know we worked them hard with some of the technical issues we had, but they never stopped and never gave up, which was a huge inspiration to the drivers. Our race result was not what we were hoping for, but now we know what needs to be done to win the 12 Hours of Brno in October. It was really an honor to be racing with such a great team and co-drivers, all while representing the BMW brand.”
In the first third of the race, the team lost time in the garage due to an electrical fault and seriously worn brakes. After that, the No. 246 BMW M235i Racing ran without any problems. The Juniors completed flawless stints and clocked consistent lap times as they made up many places.
Far more important than the final result was the valuable experience that the BMW Motorsport Juniors gained at the iconic circuit in Flanders. As well as the unique challenges of a 24-hour race, the youngsters also experienced how to look after the car when driving it twice round the clock, how to act as a team, and how to share a car. The four-kilometre circuit in Zolder does not have a long straight and demands maximum concentration from the drivers. Given the traffic encountered during a 24-hour race, with cars of different speeds, this was another important test for the Juniors, and one which they passed with flying colours.
Two days before he turns 20 years old on Sept. 20, Trent will be back behind the wheel of the No. 46 Fall-Line Motorsport BMW M3 at Circuit of the Americas, in Austin, Tex., for the penultimate round of the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge Championship. The two-and-one-half-hour race will be streamed live on imsa.com beginning at 1:30 p.m. ET. Trent and co-driver Ashley Freiberg currently stand eighth in Grand Sport class driver points.

Trent Hindman 24 Hours of Zolder: 6 Hour Update

August 29, 2015 — With a quarter of the race in the books and darkness falling on the Belgian countryside and Circuit Zolder, Trent Hindman and his BMW Motorsport Junior teammates are getting a learning experience only a 24 hour race can throw at a driver. Electrical issues and a suspected brake problem have slowed the No. 246 Walkenhorst Motorsport BMW M235i to last in the BMW M235i Cup class, but everything seems sorted now and the car is well on pace.
Just finishing a double stint, Hindman said, “It was a mentally challenging stint with a ton of things going on. We just have had a couple of electronic issues, but we are fortunate to have a great team working hard to sort it out. The Walkenhorst team has welcomed us with open arms. My co-drivers, Dirk, Victor and Louis have be doing a fantastic job. We are helping each other and pushing each other. The M235i is fast and I think we can certainly bring it to the end which is most important.”

Hindman To Race at the 24 Hours of Zolder; Young American BMW Motorsport Junior Driver Ready For Next Challenge

August 26, 2015 — A visit to the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion as guest of BMW of North America sandwiched by a third-place finish at Road America and a fourth at VIRginia International Raceway has made for three busy weekends in a row for BMW Motorsport Junior Trent Hindman, but it’s not over yet. The 19-year old, from Wayside, NJ, is now in Belgium ready for this weekend’s 24 hour race at Circuit Zolder, in Belgium, where he will co-drive a BMW Racing Cup  M235i with fellow Junior drivers, as well as chief instructor Dirk Adorf. The race at Zolder will be the first of two races for Hindman this fall. The second will be a 12 hour race in October at Brno, in the Czech Republic.
“March was the last time I drove the M235i and I’m excited to get back behind the wheel,” stated Hindman. “I’ve had strong finishes in the last two Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge races so I feel I’m prepared for Zolder. It’s been three years since I’ve raced in Europe and I’ve been wearing a smile all week in anticipation.”
Road America saw Hindman and co-driver Ashley Freiberg back on the Grand Sport class podium with a third place finish in the No. 46 Fall-Line Motorsports BMW M3 after two disappointing races in which Trent did not get a chance to drive. Hindman had a second consecutive podium within reach at VIR until an additional late fuel stop became necessary due to a miscue in an earlier stop. He made a strong recovery to finish fourth.
“Except for that small issue I believe we’d have finished on the podium. We could take the fight to everyone. Going forward to COTA and Road Atlanta I know we’ll continue to show strength.”
The weekend in between Road America and VIR saw Trent make his first visit to the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion. As a guest of BMW of North America, he was immersed in the history of the brand, spending time with drivers such as Brian Redman and becoming familiar with some of the great BMW racing cars of seasons past such as the 3.0 CSL and M1.
“Having the chance to see the history of BMW racing in the States, get to know Bill Auberlen and meet a driver like Brian Redman was very special. Everything I was able to do and see that weekend made me feel even more like part of the BMW family.”

FALL-LINE’S RACE ENDS EARLY AT LIME ROCK PARK

Lakeville, CT (July 27, 2015) – The Fall-Line Motorsports BMW M3 driven by Ashley Freiberg and Trent Hindman had another tough weekend at Lime Rock Park. The 2015 Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge season has had it’s ups and downs for the talented young duo. After capturing their first podium of the season at Watkins Glen the team hasn’t finished in the past two races.

Ashley started the 2-hour race in sixth position. Shortly after the green flag she was punted off the track by another competitor and went flying into the tire barrier. It was a hard hit but the BMW chassis held up as expected and Ashley was not injured.

 

There is one weekend off before the next round at Road America which is a home race for Fall-Line. The team remains optimistic and hopes to have a strong showing in front of a home crowd.

 

#46 IHG Rewards Club/ Trim-Tex Drywall Products/ Fall-Line Motorsports BMW driver quotes:

 

Ashley Freiberg: “I was definitely both angry and gutted for the team, BMW USA, IHG Rewards Club, Trim-Tex and for Trent. I know the Fall-Line crew has their work cut out for them, but I am confident they will have the car back to 100% before Road America. I am a little sore, but am taking this rest time to focus on and prepare for the race in two weeks. Unfortunately getting taken out is a part of racing and it’s never fun when you’re the victim, but it’s about how you get up, wipe off the dirt, and bounce back from a situation like this that matters. We will be a force to be reckoned with at the next race; I’m sure of it.”

 

Trent Hindman: “Such an unfortunate end to a promising weekend. The car was great in practice and qualifying, but it was really a shame to see us go out of the race so early. I for sure am already focusing on how we’re going to bring home a win in Road America, because that’s the least we can do for all of the Fall-Line crew. As always a big thank you to our partners Trim-Tex, IHG Rewards Club, and Top 1 Oil. On to the next one.”

 

Michael Harvey, Fall-Line Motorsports Team Manager:“What a terrible disappointing day for the IHG Rewards Club/ Trim-Tex BMW. The Fall-Line guys have worked so hard and we had such a strong car but unfortunately our race ended on lap 1 as we were shoved off the track into the wall. I feel so bad for Trent, Ashley and the whole Fall-Line team. Fortunately, Ashley is okay although a little sore so we can all be thankful for the strength of the Fall-Line BMW.In true Fall-Line spirit we will shake off the past few events and roll right onto Road America- a home event for us in which we look forward to putting the Fall-Line IHG Rewards Club/ Trim-Tex BMW in victory lane.”

HINDMAN AND FREIBERG BACK ON THE PODIUM AT WATKINS GLEN

Watkins Glen, NY (June 28, 2015) – Fall-Line Motorsports had a taste of redemption at this weekend’s Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge race at Watkins Glen International after struggling for results in the first three races of the 2015 season. The duo of Trent Hindman and Ashley Freiberg were hoping to make it back on the podium at one of their favorite tracks, and that wish came true with a solid second-place finish.  

A combination of intense testing and development of the BMW M3 at Watkins Glen earlier this year, the AOP adjustment that IMSA set in place before this weekend’s race, and a strong drive in the rain from both Ashley and Trent all contributed to the end result. Historically the BMW M3s are very quick in the rain and this weekend proved that to be true once again. The pit crew also performed a flawless pit stop in very difficult conditions. Ashley started the race in 8th position and drove incredibly well to move up to P3 before pitting. Trent took over and got into the groove immediately in the horrible conditions and continued the move forward and got as far as second-position before a brief red-flag period. The race ultimately never went green again and we finished under a yellow condition.

The #46 car sits solidly in 4th place in Championship standings, just 7 points outside of the leaders. With six races remaining, the Championship-defending team is very much still in the fight.

 

#46 IHG Rewards Club/ Trim-Tex Drywall Products/ Fall-Line Motorsports BMW driver quotes:

 

Ashley Freiberg: “What a day. It was great to drive in the rain again; it’s been a while for me! I am really happy with second place; Fall-Line made our IHG Rewards Club/ Trim-Tex BMW wicked fast in the super wet conditions, so it was fun to move our way toward the front! It’s a bummer that we couldn’t finish the race under green to try and fight for the win, but we will take it! Let’s go for that win at Mosport!”

 

Trent Hindman: “It’s such a great feeling to finally be back up on the podium. As soon as the rain starting coming Saturday morning, I knew we had an excellent chance to win because our M3 is an extremely strong car in the wet. Ashley drove a very clean, smart stint and that was massive. It was unfortunate that the race ended under yellow because I genuinely felt we would’ve been able to work our way past the 6. I’m so proud of our Fall-Line crew, and as always a huge thank you to Trim-Tex, IHG rewards club, and Top 1 Oil. We’re going to be charging hard to get that win in Mosport.”

 

Michael Harvey, Fall-Line Motorsports Team Manager: “It was great to get back on the podium. The Fall-Line Motorsports IHG Rewards Club, Trim-Tex BMW took to the rain like a duck to water with both Ashley and Trent driving exceptionally well in very tricky conditions. The Fall-Line crew did a marvelous job this weekend and with perfect strategy we were able to compete for the win. Unfortunate that the race ended under yellow as we feel we had a real shot at the win. It was especially exciting to perform well as we had both BMW and IHG Rewards Club on-site to share in a great podium finish. Now we move across the border to CTMP where we will be happy to see more rain.”

Hindman’s Season Heats Up!

Three Races in Five Weeks for Young American BMW Motorsport Junior Driver
Watkins Glen, NY. June 24, 2015 — After an eight-week break in the 2015 Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge series Trent Hindman is more than ready to restart the season at Watkins Glen International, in Watkins Glen, NY,  on June 27th and then race in two additional races – at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, in Bowmanville, Ontario, Canada and Lime Rock Park, in Lakeville, Conn. – over the next four weeks. He will also make a trip to the IZone simulator, in Silverstone, England, as part of the BMW Motorsport Junior program in between Watkins Glen and CTMP to prepare for upcoming races in Europe.
The 19-year old, from Wayside, NJ, currently stands fifth in the CTSCC Grand Sport class driver points standings after three rounds in the No. 46 Fall-Line Motorsports BMW M3 he co-drives with Ashley Freiberg. The duo shares a seasons-best finish of fourth at the BMW Performance 200 at Daytona International Speedway in January. Hindman won the 2014 CTSCC GS driver title, becoming the youngest ever to do so, as co-driver with BMWNA driver John Edwards. This season Hindman has assumed the role of lead driver of the No. 46 M3 as he continues to mature as a sports car endurance driver.

“I’ve been training hard during this break as the next five weeks will be extremely busy ones,” said Hindman. “Watkins Glen is a challenging circuit and with the recent balance of performance given to the BMW M3 by IMSA (a 50 pound weight reduction and 2 mm increase in air restrictor diameter) I think we will regain much of the speed the M3 has shown at the Glen in recent years. The Glen is one of my favorite tracks and we are going to have a great car, so I’m focused on doing the best job possible for Fall-Line, Trim-Tex, IHG Rewards Club, and Top 1 Oil.”
Immediately following the Glen weekend, Trent will fly to Silverstone, England, to spend time in the IZone simulator as part of his BMW Motorsport Junior program training. The simulator is one of the tools Hindman will use to prepare himself for Circuit Zolder, in Holland, where he is scheduled to participate in a 24 hour race at the end of August as well as a 12 hour race scheduled in October at Brno, in the Czech Republic.
Hindman continued, “I am excited to be competing in two long distance endurance events with my fellow Juniors. Having the opportunity to drive in both 12 and 24 hour races this year will really add to the already massive amount I am learning from being a part of the BMW Motorsport Junior Program. Zolder and Brno are two great European circuits that I’m really looking forward to racing on, and thankfully we are going to get some time in on an IZone simulator to get some preparation.”
This weekend’s CTSCC race will be streamed live on imsa.com beginning at 12:25 p.m. ET Saturday, June 27th and be broadcast on FOX Sports 1 on July 5 at 10:00 am ET.

FALL-LINE MOTORSPORTS HAS MIXED RESULTS IN DAYTONA

Daytona Beach, FL (January 29, 2015)- Fall-Line Motorsports finished just one position off the podium last weekend at Daytona International Raceway as Trent Hindman and Ashley Freiberg took the checkered flag in fourth place in GS for the BMW Performance 200. Teammates Corey Lewis and Al Carter were unable to start the race after a crash in the morning warm-up that left their racecar with significant damage that couldn’t repaired in time for the race.

The defending Continental Tire SportsCar (CTSC) Champion (Hindman) and defending Daytona race winner (Freiberg) had a solid run in the race after they started in 6th position. Freiberg started the race and drove all the way up to second before pitting for a driver change. Hindman turned the third fastest lap in the closing laps in the 2.5-hour race.

Trent Hindman: “I thought it was a solid run, I’m a little bit angry at myself because I knew we could have caught Lawson (Aschenbach) at the end. It was still a great fight. I knew we had the car in the infield to catch him but those things (Camaros) are just monsters coming off the corners. That definitely made it difficult to pass. At the end of the day, everyone did an incredible job. For us to get the lone BMW in the field up into the top-five, I think that’s a great accomplishment. A huge thanks to Mark Boden, Michael Harvey, and everyone at Fall-Line for giving us a great racecar and flawless pit stops all day. Thank you to Trim-Tex and IHG Rewards Club for making this possible today.”

Ashley Freiberg: “I am pretty proud of our race. We are looking at this with a long term view which is to win the Championship, so fourth place is good for points. The team did a great job with pit stops, and Trent drove well. The car was handling really well, we just don’t have the straight line speed due to all of last season’s BOP adjustments, which is kind of frustrating, but I think we gave it everything we could. I have to give huge thank you to IHG Rewards Club, BMW of North America, Trim-Tex, and Fall-Line Motorsports for their support and for a solid start to the 2015 season. I am looking forward to what Sebring will bring us!”

Al Carter: “It was great to be united with the whole Fall-Line crew at Daytona. Our #48 BMW was stout rolling off the truck. We qualified strong and though the racing gods didn’t allow us to get the debut we had hoped for, make no doubt that Corey Lewis is an amazing young racing talent and this #48 team will shine at Sebring. A huge shout out to teammates Trent and Ashley for all their help and support and congrats for their strong race finish.”

Corey Lewis: “Daytona did not turn out as we had planned. The Fall-Line Motorsports crew did an amazing job preparing the car, and my co-driver Al Carter qualified us at P10. Unfortunately, I made an error in morning warm up causing damage to the car that could not be repaired in time for the race. My focus in now on Sebring, and getting the result I know we are capable of. A huge thank you to Amped Apparel, Monticello Motor Club, and the Nila Agency.”

Michael Harvey, Team Manager: “It was a bittersweet day for the Fall-Line Motorsports BMWs. Unfortunately, the #48 incurred damage that precluded it from racing but the #46 had a strong race to finish 4th. The result was a great way to start the year especially as the strategy, pitstops, and performance from all was flawless; 4th was better than we could have hoped for today. A big thank you goes out to IHG Rewards Club and longtime partner Trim-Tex. We are excited to move onto Sebring and continue our pursuit of a Championship for Fall-Line, BMW and all of our partners.”

Next up is Sebring International Raceway on March 20.

FALL-LINE MOTORSPORTS MAKES THE BEST OUT OF DIFFICULT SITUATION AT VIR IN CTSC

Danville, Virginia (August 25, 2014) – Fall-Line Motorsports left Virginia International Raceway in second place in GS standings, just two points out of the lead with driver Trent Hindman. The #46 car has led the Championship since race two of the 2014 Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge Series but with just two races remaining, the Fall-Line team is pulling out all the stops. The #46 car had a charging issue during the race that made for two extra pit stops and put the BMW M3 a lap down in P12 to finish out the race. Ashley Freiberg was back in the #48 and drove a great race alongside co-driver Andrew Longe. The pair finished P13 after a late race pit stop took them out of a strong top-10 finishing position.

Hindman started from P6 and very eary in his stint the team realized there was a problem. The issue was obviously electrical and Hindman had to make an un-scheduled pit stop to replace the battery. Conditions were extremely grueling, with the internal temperature of the cars reaching over 135 degrees. The drivers weren’t able to use their helmet blowers and had to turn off all un-necessary devices that would draw electricity. The battery had to be replaced three times, calling for two additional pit stops, and still the team only lost one lap and kept the #46 car running until the end of the race. They finished in twelfth place but in this race to the end for the Championship, every point is crucial.

John Edwards: “It was a disappointing day for us. We had a pretty decent pace but were fighting an electrical problem that required us to change batteries during every pit stop. Ultimately one of our stops took a long time when the team tried to repair the problem and it cost us a lap. The Championship is tight now going into the last two races so it should be exciting but it’s a little more excitement than we needed after having such a big lead earlier in the season.”

Trent Hindman: “Well, overall it was a character building race, we definitely had a car that was capable of finishing on the podium but unfortunately we just got caught out by some electrical gremlins. This #46 Fall-Line team has done an incredible job overcoming the bad luck that we’re having this summer and that’s really what’s keeping us in this championship hunt! A big thank you to our partners Trim-Tex, Cirocco & Ozzimo, Atlas Acon, and DFL Interiors for sticking with us and helping us keep this program going. We’re trailing the 6 car by a little bit in points now, but there’s two races to go and plenty of time to make it happen.”

Andrew Longe competed in his third race of the season in the #48 BMW M3 and had a strong race despite the 13th place result. Longe started the race from P17 but had a solid first stint and kept the car clean and improved each and every session he was in the car. It was Ashley’s first race back behind the wheel since Kansas and her first trip to VIR in many years. She also assumed the finishing role for this event as Fall-Line continues to gain as much experience for Ashley while focusing on trying to put together a full program for her in 2015. She got behind the wheel after executing a perfect driver change and excellent pit stops and was looking to finish strongly in the top-ten before having to pit with just two laps remaining in the race for a splash of fuel.

Ashley Freiberg: “It felt absolutely amazing to be back in the #48 Fall-Line Motorsports BMW! I was really proud of the job Andrew did, and the crew gave us a great car to bring us up to 10th before we had to pit for a splash of fuel at the end. It was definitely one of the toughest races I ever had to drive in my whole career though, both mentally and physically. For the one hour forty-five minute stint in a 140 degree racecar, I had no helmet air blower and ran out of water quickly due to me trying to keep my body temp down. I definitely am stronger after that one, and I hope I can carry over the lessons I learned to finish out the season.”

Andrew Longe: “It was a great weekend at Virginia International Raceway in our Fall-Line Motorsports/ Trianon Hotels BMW M3! It was a great opportunity to work with Ashley this weekend and I believe we both benefitted from building off of each other’s strengths and we will be able to use the skills we learned to put towards the remainder of the season. A huge thank you to all of the Fall-Line Motorsports team for the perfect car, amazing pit stops and everything they do to ensure we have the best car on grid, we couldn’t do it without them.”

Michael Harvey, Fall-Line Motorsports Team Manager: “I am very proud of the Fall-Line Motorsports team, we experienced some challenges today and the team rose to the occasion to minimize the damage. These are the events that win championships and with the “never give up” attitude these guys have extracted the most from the race. Such a pity as the car was very strong. It was great to have Ashley back behind the wheel and she and Andrew did an excellent job, with great pace. As always the Fall-Line BMWs were strong throughout the weekend as we now look to put together two perfect events to bring Fall-Line, BMW and all our great partners the big prize. ”
