Berk Technology Continues Win Streak at ETGP
Each year EuroTuner Magazine invites the top US tuning shops to compete in a three day battle dubbed the EuroTuner Grand Prix (ETGP). The ETGP is the magazine’s biggest event of the year and showcases the performance of each team in the disciplines of drag racing, dyno testing, and time attack racing.
Berk Technology arrived on the scene with their BMW 135i sporting new body work by APR Performance & V-Fiber and immediately got down to business. Their years of racing experience paid off as the team arrived well prepared to win the coveted prize of fastest lap at Willow Springs International Raceway. The brake heavy course was perfectly suited for the Performance Friction Z-Rated brake package and the KW Suspensions coilovers were phenomenal at soaking up the rough surface of the track. Berk Technology driver Carl Rydquist put his years of experience in European GT racing to good use as he piloted the BMW to a dominant win in the time attack competition and a 3rd place overall ETGP finish.
“Our team executed our mission beautifully. We approached the race with cautious optimism knowing that we had several other drivers from ALMS and Grand-Am with purpose built racecars in tow. It was a great feeling when we received our trophy for winning the time attack event. Our 3rd place overall finish at ETGP was icing on the cake.” – Carl Rydquist – Driver, Berk Technology
