Boris Said, who won the GT class in two American Le Mans Series races in 2001, was recently honoured by BMW.

Said received the historic BMW Sports Trophy for the most successful BMW non-works racing driver in the 2001 season. He was presented the award at a BMW Motorsport party held in Austria.

"BMW's greatest motorsport successes are down to factory involvement," said BMW Motorsport Director Gerhard Berger. "But most successes are down to independent competitors. These ambitious drivers who ride to victory in our cars without a factory contract are valuable ambassadors of the BMW brand on the world's racing circuits."

Said has driven for BMW Team PTG since 1996. The team has been a regular entrant in American Le Mans Series races since the formation of the series in 1999.

Said and Hans Stuck co-drove to the GT class victory in the ALMS event held in August at Portland, Ore. The two were joined by Bill Auberlen in winning the GT class in Audi presents Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta in October, the final race of the season.
