15 April 2022 GT America

Sonoma, California - After an overcast and rainy day of test sessions on Thursday, Friday provided much sunny, meteorological relief as all 28 competitors in GT America powered by AWS set off in Practice Session No. 1 for this weekend’s Sonoma Raceway Presented By Crowdstrike weekend.

In SRO3, rising track temperatures led to an overall fast and smooth session, with Jason Harward setting the fastest lap of the morning in his #88 Zelus Motorsports Lamborghini Huracan GT3 with a 1:40.814. Not far behind was St. Pete Race #2 winner George Kurtz in the #04 CrowdStrike Racing by Riley Motorsports Mercedes-AMG GT3 with a 1:42.294, and Jeff Burton clocking in a 1:42.345 behind the wheel of the #191 Zelus Motorsports Lamborghini Huracan GT3.

In GT4, it was all Aston Martin Vantage AMR GT4s in the top three spots, with St. Pete Race 2 winner Jason Bell setting a 1:47.567 in the #2 GMG Racing car, followed by Elias Sabo with a 1:48.027 in the #8 Flying Lizard Motorsport rig, and Ross Chouest in the #50 not far behind him with a 1:48.291 for Chouest Provoledo Racing.
