CarBahn with Peregrine Racing has made the switch from an Audi R8 LMS GT4 to Porsche’s new 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport for the upcoming IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge season. 

The No. 93 Porsche will contest a full season, with Mark Siegel to be joined by Tom Dyer and Tyler McQuarrie for this month’s season-opener at Daytona International Speedway.

Sameer Gandhi will also be part of the team’s lineup over the course of the season.

“After running the Audi platform for so many years, I’m very excited to work with Steve Dinan and the team to make sure we are getting everything out of the new car and I look forward to that challenge,” said McQuarrie.

“Although I will have a few different co-drivers throughout the season, my plan will be the same every time I get in the car, and that is to be laser focused, and get everything out of the car for the best possible result for the team.”

The team’s new GS class entry follows its switch from Audi to Lamborghini machinery in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.

“2022 is big year of changes for the Peregrine Racing with CarBahn Motorsports team,” said Siegel. “We’ll be racing the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport this year, and the car looks like it is going to be fantastic on track.

“One thing we’re not changing is our stable of drivers.

“Tyler McQuarrie, our 2019 champion, will be the pro driver alongside myself and Sameer Gandhi. Tom Dyer, who has also been a regular in the car, will be joining us for the long races during the season.”

Gandhi added: “The Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport has the same displacement, but a significantly improved power output compared to its predecessor.

“I absolutely cannot wait to push it to its limit at historic circuits around the country. I’m keen to keep learning with the likes of Tyler, Tom and Mark, and I am confident that we will achieve great things together in 2022.”

Dyer also returns to the California-based team. 

“We’ve got new and refreshed cars to learn and continue developing while striving to make this year better than the last,” he said.

“I look forward to doing my part in helping to continue that tradition.

“Competing in the two long IMSA races with Mark, Tyler and the new car will be a blast.”
