GMG President, James Sofronas will carry the flag for the team at the first SRO GT America powered by AWS race of 2023 at the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg on March 2nd -4th. James will start the season off for as the single entry for St. Pete as both Kyle Washington and CJ Moses have personal conflicts for this event. GMG Racing driver Jay Logan and Todd Parriott will also join the team at COTA later in the season.
James will be hit the streets of St. Pete in an Audi R8 GT3 EVO2 in what will mark his 30th consecutive season in World Challenge/ SRO competition.
Although James has been focusing on GMG’s Customer Racing Program, an opportunity presented itself to race this Audi, when a longtime partner from Europe made this car available over the winter. “Our Racing Program is primarily focused on Porsches as we manage all models in their Motorsport ladder program but with the 992 GT3R's availability delayed until June of this year, this R8 GT3 EVO2 filled the role for our GT3 program alongside Kyle and his current 991.2 Gen GT3R’s. Kyle will be running the GT3 R cars until the new 992R arrives. We plan to run the new car in single and multi-driver programs, " stated James.
James added: “We have been extremely busy with our off-season Customer racing program, focusing primarily on our Porsche GT3 Cup car clients at The Thermal Club. The Thermal Club has been a wonderful facility to implement our Driver Development progam as most of our drivers graduate from the Club based racing program into an SRO/IMSA/USAC racing series. However, I'm extremely excited to kick off the season at St. Pete with the SRO Series in this new R8, in a series where my debut was back in 1994.
James’ car will carry the traditional GMG Racing blue livery with support from EBOOST, BNEATH, Mobil 1 and The Thermal Club. In his last GT America race back in 2021, James captured an overall victory at Road America and followed that up with a win at the Inaugural Music City Grand Prix in Nashville.
