Boris Said’s name will be familiar to any North American racing fan, from road racing to NASCAR. That’s because he is one of the most verstile racers in the world – competing in multiple racing series and a wide variety of cars. Said has been driving in select events for Turner Motorsport since 2005. He co-drove the entire 2006 Grand-Am Cup GS season with that year’s Champion Anders Hainer, in a Turner BMW E46 M3. In 2005, he was the overall winner of the 24 Hours of the Nurburgring – the first American to do so. Said will be bolstering the Turner team’s already stellar 2012 Rolex 24 line-up, aiming to add the GT class victory to his two previous Daytona 24 Hour wins. Said will also be driving the #97 with Michael Marsal for the full 2012 Continental Tire series season.
