Daren Jorgensen, Driver, #113 BMW M4GT4
“Pirelli World Challenge has established a great platform for manufacturers, sponsors and teams. We’re thrilled to be competing in their SprintX Championship in the new BMW M4 GT4, a platform we competed with at the Bathurst 12 Hour. BMW has developed a competitive car with the M4GT4, and we’ve been able to develop both of our M4GT4s, both the one in Australia and our car in the States, through international competition and testing this year. Circuit of the Americas is an incredible, yet technical, facility to kick off the SprintX season but we’re confident in our BMW M4GT4 and the support we’re receiving from Strom Motorsports and Classic BMW.”
Cameron Lawrence, Driver, #113 BMW M4 GT4
“I’m excited to be making my debut in Pirelli World Challenge SprintX Championship with RHC Lawrence-Strom and Daren Jorgensen. Both Daren and I have become very familiar with the M4GT4 platform through testing and competition at the Bathurst 12 Hour. With the support of Strom Motorsports and Classic BMW, we’re certain we’ll have a competive car right out of the trailer, and I’m looking forward to our first race at Circuit of the Americas.”
