Turley's Swift season ends with third Flourishing finish: Mike Turley of Coatesville was third in the Suzuki Swift Cup season. A spectacular near roll was one of the highlights of Coatesville driver Mike Turley s race in the Suzuki Swift Cup championship final round. Turley ended up finishing third in the season. At Taupo Motorsport Park, Turley came into the final round looking in good form with only a five-point deficit behind the leader, but things didn t go his way for the weekend. After two penalties which had him start race two and three from the back of the grid, he fought his way through the field. His near roll was saved at the last minute near the end of race three. Highlights of Turley s sea- son were two round wins, four race wins and two poles. He was also series leader for four out of six rounds. Turley praises his sponsor Motorsport Import Company and his crew for their hard work and dedication.
