Johnson, a professional race car driver with experience in the American Le Mans Series, Rolex Sports Car Series, and NASCAR will be a strong addition to the team. He started racing in go karts at 13 years old, going on to become the 2016 IMSA Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge champion and development driver for Multimatic Motorsports and Ford Performance. Coleman and Johnson will compete together in the GT4 America Pro/Am class, against other two-driver lineups. The GT4 America season will begin March 30th at Sonoma Raceway.
"I'm really looking forward to racing with Todd in the GT4 America series this year,” said Johnson. “The whole Todd Coleman Racing team with Mike Johnson and Archangel running the Aston Martin GT4, I feel like we have the team, car, and driver lineup that is capable of challenging for wins."
The Grand Prix of St. Petersburg will ring in the 2023 race season on March 3-5 by closing down the city streets to create a 2.897, 14-turn temporary race course. GT America will be one of five series racing on the course throughout the weekend, running in support of the NTT INDYCAR Series. The GT America competitors will have limited track time, participating in two practices, one qualifying session, and race one all on Friday, March 3. Race two will be the following afternoon on Saturday, March 4. The tight, unforgiving concrete walls of the temporary street course offer little margin of error for the drivers, fighting the excitement over the several-day race weekend.
Fans unable to attend the event can watch race one and race two live on YouTube.com/GTWorld on Friday, March 3 at 5:55 PM ET, and Saturday, March 4 at 12:15 PM, respectively. For more information, visit gtamerica.us.
