Colin Turkington was awarded in the 2011 BMW Sports Trophy in Munich, Germany as the 14th best BMW driver in the world.
”I am proud over the award and I think it is a nice acknowledgement on a real fighting-season,” said Turkington.

Turkington was awarded for his efforts in STCC with Flash Engineering and his three races in the WTCC.
”It felt good to end the season on a high with strong results in STCC and WTCC. It has been a great adventure and I am looking forward to 2012,” said Turkington.

More than 230 BMW drivers from all over the world were in the 2011 BMW Sports Trophy, the 50th trophy since the start in 1961.
”Even after 50 years, the BMW Sports Trophy still retains its appeal for drivers around the world. We once again had a record number of participants in 2011. A closer look at the list of entrants shows the many different ways in which drivers and teams can race successfully with BMW cars: 27 different models were in action in over 40 racing series across four continents, winning an impressive nine titles. Every driver competing in the BMW Sports Trophy is part of the BMW Motorsport family. The participants have come to value this for half a decade. They are fantastic ambassadors for BMW,” said Jens Marquardt.

A total of 250,000 euro were awarded to the drivers of the 2011 BMW Sports Trophy.
