For a third consecutive season, Boris Said and Anders Hainer have joined forces in the Grand-Am Cup series. They are co-piloting the No. 97 Turner Motorsport/Under Armour/ BMW M3 with the hopes of winning their first championship in the Cup series. Hainer began road racing in the mid 1990's in his Porsche 911 GT3. Over the years, he scored multiple wins and podium finishes in POC, PCA, SCCA, and NASA, including class and overall wins at the famous former Street Races of L.A. In 2003, he and Steve Cross took the GT3 win in the Tribute to Lemans Enduro. Hainer teamed with Said in 2004 in a Nissan 350Z, capturing his first professional win in the Grand-Am Cup Series, and had some additional top 3 finishes that year. The two continued their success in 2005 by racing an Anchor Racing/Under Armour/BMW M3, securing two podiums and one top five finish. Between his busy work and race schedule, I visited Anders at his home in Hidden Hills, California.
Anders' gorgeous home is nestled in the city of Hidden Hills, between the western foothills of the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles County and the Ventura County line. While he relies on his Cayenne Turbo to navigate through the mountains, his daily commuter is a Porsche 911S Convertible. Very much a family man, Anders enjoys spending time with his beautiful wife Julie and their three children Jasmine, Alexandra, and Erik. During their free time, the Hainers swim in their pool and race each other on their electric go-karts and ATV's in their spacious backyard.
