Eric Foss is joining Murillo Racing, Mosing Motorcars as a driver and coach for the 2014 Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge. Foss will be co-driving the No. 56 BMW 328i in the ST category with longtime friend and coaching client Jeff Mosing In addition, Eric also will be coaching team drivers Brent Mosing and Tim Probert in the No. 65 BMW.

“I have been working with Eric since just before my leap into the Professional ranks of Road Racing,” said Jeff Mosing, CEO of Mosing Motorcars. “He and I actually raced together at the ARRC endurance race in 2008 in Spec Miata and won! It was my first win, and I was glad to share it with him. He is one of the most talented drivers out there and I couldn’t be happier to have him as my co-driver again.”

In addition to this season fourth-place finish, the team also had a few podium finishes throughout the season.

“This is an exciting opportunity for me to join a top-notch team as a coach and driver and run with my friends,” Foss said. “Based on last year’s performance this is a solid team and I’m confident we will be a strong contender for the Championship.”

The partnership between Mosing and Foss is an extension of their multi-year friendship, which kicked off after Foss began coaching Mosing in 2008.

Foss already is familiar with the Murillo Racing, Mosing Motorcars team, having coached them for several races last season.

For Foss, the partnership will mark the first time he will have raced the entire season in the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge. He ran the series in 2011, driving a Mazdaspeed3, but the team didn’t bring Eric in until after the season already began.
