Sterling, Virginia (May 28, 2010) – Entering Round 5 of the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge, the RRT Racing #18 BMW 328i will be piloted by Martin Jensen and Paul Gerrard. Paul started with RRT Racing in Round 3 at Barber Motorsports Park, while the upcoming Round 5 race at Lime Rock Park in Connecticut will be the premier race for Martin with RRT Racing in the Grand-Am Continental Tire Sport Car Challenge Series.
Martin has had years of experience overseas, racing BMWs and other marques in multiple European series. His latest exploits have been in a BMW E90 320is, the same chassis as the RRT Racing #18 race car. Hailing from Smoerum, Denmark, his European race experience includes the Danish Touring Car Series. Grand-Am, however, will not be Martin’s first venture into professional racing the US. Martin has raced multiple times in a Porsche GT3 RSR within the ALMS series at events such as the 12 Hours of Sebring.
Joining Martin is Paul Gerrard. Paul is an internationally-recognized and accomplished driver in the pro-racing circles. He currently serves as the Director of Global Training for the Jim Russell schools and Chief Driving Instructor for the Audi Driving Experience. Paul has over 20 years of competitive driving experience in both domestic and international series. In addition, Paul has performed development work and testing for automobile and tire manufacturers.
With additional testing and significant engine work since Round 4 at VIR, the RRT Racing team believes the car is a powerful contender. Combined with Martin and Paul’s racing experience and proven results, strong finishes for the RRT Racing team at Lime Rock and Watkins Glen are expected.
