The Elkhart Lake victors roll into Canada with a wave of momentum and a thirst to add to their success at the high speed Mosport track.
The BimmerWorld BMW World Challenge team sets down at one of their favorite events this weekend at the high speed circuit just outside of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Surrounded by picturesque hills at the tree-lined 2.5 mile circuit, Mosport famously demands both car and driver to perform at their maximum to earn a top finish.

After years of coming close and years of developing their own BMW E90 chassis to race in the SCCA SPEED World Challenge Touring Car series, team owner/driver James Clay scored his maiden win in the most competitive road racing series in North America on Sunday. This was BimmerWorld's first win since Joey Hand's victory for the team at Mid-Ohio in 2007.
In a season thus far dominated by factory teams, BimmerWorld’s breakthrough at Elkhart Lake was a popular one amongst fans and drivers. “I never knew what to expect after I got my first win the Touring Car, but it seems like the entire paddock-guys like Peter Cunningham, Pierre Kleinubing, and the rest of the guys made a point to congratulate me and the rest of the team. It means a lot. I think they understand how hard we’ve been working to make this happen.”

For most racers and fans, the 4.048 mile Road America race track nestled in the picturesque town of Elkhart Lake is a place of fond memories and future aspirations. But don't count the drivers of the BimmerWorld BMW World Challenge racing team amongst those with nothing but happy tales to tell about the twisting Wisconsin circuit.
While they’ve all had highs and lows, the team’s mixed fortunes at Elkhart are a blend of comedy and misery. For Nick Esayian – pilot of the #34 Debt Cures BMW E90, the state is responsible for his college education and also his racing education.
