BSW is happy to announce we are going racing with the Indy Racing League. BSW has partnered with Stefan Wilson, a driver from the UK, who competes in the IndyLights within the Indy Racing League. He was on the podium with a top 3 finish last race on the streets of St. Pete. We are hoping for an equal or better performance this weekend for Stefan! This upcoming weekend is the inaugural Grand Prix of Alabama at Barber Motorsport. There will be a lot of racing action going on as IndyLights, Grand Am and the Continental Tire Series will be running support. The days will be packed full of motorsports from Friday through Sunday so please come out and join us root on Stefan! As with many motorsports events there will be times to meet/see drivers. Paddock passes are available if you want to get close to the action and see what makes a race team go! BSW has as much access as the IRL offers so stay tuned for photos and updates as I will have my cameras with me!
I am super excited to find out Grand Am is running as a support race. If you haven't seen a Grand Am race they are very exciting with lots of passing and since they are full bodied/modified street cars there is plenty of bumping and grinding for position! My first ever 'car job' was working for Fall-Line Motorsports in Northbrook, IL and they run a hand full of E92 M3 racecars! I have already spoken with Mark Boden the owner and I amexcited to meet old friends from past jobs before I moved to BSW. Make sure to root for the 'home team' BMWs that Fall-Line will be running. This season they are running extremely strong and I am hoping they will be running out front!
Stay tuned for updates during the weekend! Please see links below for schedules, details and events going on. Keep in mind Friday April 9th I will be out of the office. I will have access to email in the morning and late afternoon/evening so do not hesitate to continue to email with me for sales/support/questions/etc. I will be happy to answer but it will just take a little bit longer than a normal Friday. Jeremy will still be covering the phones during the day on Friday so do not hesitate to give him a call!

It works great! Really awesome product!" - Stefan Wilson
