1 May 2021 GT America
  • GMG Racing, Lamborghini Take Overall Pole in SRO3
  • Wright Motorsports, Porsche Top SRO3-M
  • Stephen Cameron Racing, BMW Lead GT4

Austin, Texas - GT America powered by AWS had its second weekend begin under cloudy skies but at least one thing was shining as GMG Racing's James Sofronas captured the pole position for the first of a two-race double-header weekend for the series. His 2:08.635 lap time in the #14 Lamborghini also captured the SRO3 Overall lap time.

Second place positioning went to Brendan Iribe, driving the #70 McLaren 720S GT3, while DXDT Racing's George Kurtz would take the #04 to a third-place overall position with a 2:09.721 lap time after an earlier lap-time disqualification. Shoring up the second row on the grid is the top SRO3 Masters qualifier, Charlie Luck, fresh off a win-and-podium weekend in Sonoma and looking to repeat in his #45 Porsche.

In the GT4 division, the top spot in the lineup went to the #119 Stephen Cameron Racing BMW M4 GT4 with driver Sean Quinlan navigating the circuit in 2:17.976, followed less than two-tenths of a second later with the class second position earned by Ross Chouest (#89 Mercedes-AMG). The second row on the class grid will be occupied by series newcomer Thomas Surgent (#26 Prive Motorsports/Topp Racing McLaren) and Jason Bell (#2 GMG Racing Aston Martin), while the remaining competitors are sure to give the entire field a run for its money, having less than 0.5-seconds delta in the top-four in-class.

Race 1 kicks off at 4:45 pm CDT with the action streamed live and for free on the GT World YouTube channel, as well as an audio simulcast on SiriusXM satellite radio. Results are provisional until posted Final.
