The No. 96 Turner Motorsport BMW M6 GT3 of Robby Foley and Michael Dinan will not start today’s Fanatec GT World Challenge America race at Sebring International Raceway after an accident in qualifying.

Dinan lost control of the Pro class contender in the closing stages of the Saturday morning session, sustaining heavy right-front damage.

Sportscar365 understands the team is working to source required parts to be on the grid in Sunday’s 90-minute contest.

Turner’s withdrawal from Race 1 has significant championship implications, with the pole-sitting No. 3 K-PAX Racing Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo of Andrea Caldarelli and Jordan Pepper able to now clinch the title depending on the outcome of Saturday’s race.

Foley and Dinan entered the weekend 63 points behind the Lamborghini duo.
