3 times USA National Karting Champion

By the age of two, Joey was already watching his father race stock cars at local dirt tracks. At twelve, he began karting - with huge support from his parents. They toured the country together - and won a lot of silverware in the process! However, Joey dreamed of one day securing a seat in Formula 1, and decided to refocus his efforts. He secured a drive with the No. 1 team in Formula Mazda at that time - Kent Stacy's Stacy Suspension Systems (S3) - and went on to win eight races and two championships, with eight poles.

At the end of 1999, Joey severely broke his elbow which cost him the chance of a full-time drive in 2000. Instead, he won a Team USA scholarship in England, then drove for Dede Rogers' DSTP Toyota Atlantic team in 2001 and achieved 3rd place in the championship together with the coveted Rookie-of-the-Year title. He also tested for Tom Milner's PTG Motorsports team.

After a great start to 2002, Joey had a major accident and missed six races. Once back, he achieved top-five finishes in his first three races, securing 7th place in the 2003 championship. The following year he joined PTG Racing to drive their BMW M3 in the GT class of the Rolex Grand-American Road Racing Series. In 2005, he finished 4th before moving to the American Le Mans Series (ALMS) in 2006. PTG earned two podium finishes.

After many race wins, BMW North America Motorsports picked up Joey as their works driver. He joined Bill Auberlen with Milner Motorsports.

Joey is a keen supporter of the Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer, which seeks to combat the effects and improve quality of life for children suffering from the illness.

Clubmans hillclimbing Channel Islands champion, 2 lap records

Since taking up karting at the age of 11, Andy has driven pretty much every type of racing machine going. Initially he followed his father, Graham and took up hill climbing, a popular motorsport in his home of Guernsey, UK. It didn't take long for him to score his first "perfect ten" - winning every round of the 1995 British championship.

Although a career in motorsport fulfilled his dream, Andy found it hard leaving his beloved Channel Islands. However, he duly moved into a caravan at Silverstone with hopes of success in his heart. At this stage, Formula 1 was his ultimate goal. He raced in Formula 3 with Renault Spider Cup Racing and recorded his second perfect season, winning every race. But unlike many aspiring drivers, he then moved to touring cars for his next stage of development. This brought him into contact with BMW, who were after a driver for their Great Britain team. Andy, who had already driven in the British Touring Car Championship as well as the iconic Bathurst 1000 in Australia, seemed ideal. The rest is history.

His results in BMW cars speak for themselves. European Touring Car Champion, Triple World Touring Car Champion, winner of the Nürburgring 24-hour and Sebring 12-hour races, and a podium finish at the Le Mans 24 Hours race. His outstanding achievements were officially recognised in 2008 when he was awarded an MBE (Member of the British Empire) in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List.

In 2001, Andy and his wife Jo founded The Priaulx Premature Baby Foundation following the premature births of both their children. Amazed by the support they received during this time, they were inspired to create something to help others in similar situations.

2013 promises to be the most exciting season yet, with races at 10 world-class venues in Germany, Austria, Russia Holland and the UK. All three major touring car marques – Mercedes-Benz, Audi and BMW - are well-represented by 24 drivers from across the world.

About the Crowne Plaza Hotels BMW M3 DTM

BMW, Mercedes and Audi in conjunction with the DTM organisers ITR, have developed a set of race car regulations that promote safety, cost control and equal opportunities – a recipe to deliver excellent and thrilling motorsport.
