BTM Motorwerks Scores 3 Wins & 3 Seconds at Thunderhill – NASCAR Test Up Next for Mike Shawhan

May 27th, 2014

With temperatures reaching into the mid 90’s the Campbell, CA based BTM Motorwerks crew had an eventful weekend at Thunderhill as they battled the holiday heat, and their competitors, racing in both the USTCC and NASA events.

The United States Touring Car Championship (USTCC) ran a qualifying race on Saturday with BTM racer Mikee Sekhon besting the TC field and scoring the win in his M3 E46 BMW.  On Sundays feature race Mikee held the lead but was under pressure the entire race finally subcumbing to a last lap, last turn pass which left him in a disappointing 2nd place at the finish.  Mikee is now 2nd in the USTCC TC Championship.

BTM Principal Brad McClure had some issues on Saturday as the oil separator in his GT Class 996 Porsche malfunctioned and, with no spare available, forced a “call to action” by the BTM crew who used their experience, ability and skill to manufacture a suitable substitute solution in a record amount of time.

Th BTM crew got his Porsche ready in time for Saturdays qualifying race and Brad ran a steady, safe pace finishing 2nd.  Pushing the envelope a bit more on Sunday, but still taking care of his equipment, Brad had a decent start during Sunday’s feature race but finished 2nd again, this time by a narrower margin.

In the NASA Spec E30 class Mike Shawhan won on the track in his BMW on both days but the results are still Unofficial as there were unanswered technical issues being debated and examined on the legal/illegal aspects of the valves in Mike, and another competitors BMW.  No matter what the final decision is Mike will still retain his lead in the extremely competitive, driver oriented, BMW Spec E30 class.

Next up for Mike is an exciting test in a NASCAR stock car at Buttonwillow this Thursday May 29th which if successful will result in Mike making his NASCAR debut in the K&N West Pro Series race at Sonoma on Saturday June 21st.

Affordable marketing & hospitality packages are available for any organization looking for exposure on Mike’s car with the very loyal and large NASCAR fan base.  Prior to the NASCAR race Mike will be racing his Spec E30 BMW at Sonoma in the NASA race weekend June 14 – 15.

Brad McClure and Mikee Sekhon will next compete for BTM in the USTCC race scheduled for Laguna Seca the weekend of June 28th – June 29th.  Both are looking to move up from their current 2nd place standings in the GT and TC classes, respectively.

Plenty of seat time coming up for the BTM drivers which means that there will be several “close to home” opportunities for local fans & enthusiasts to see the BTM team in action.
