CarBahn with Peregrine Racing will have a rotating lineup of drivers for its No. 93 Audi R8 LMS GT4 for the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge season. 

Father-and-son Mark and Nolan Siegel have been among the drivers confirmed alongside Sameer Gandhi, Tom Dyer and Tyler McQuarrie. 

Nolan Siegel, McQuarrie, and Dyer, meanwhile, will share driving duties for the season-opening BMW Endurance Challenge, as well as this weekend’s official pre-season test at Daytona International Speedway. 

It will mark 16-year-old Nolan Siegel’s Pilot Challenge debut following two seasons of USF2000 and F4 USA. 

“I have been with the team quite a bit over the past few years, so making the transition to the Audi R8 GT4 has not been as difficult as it would be if I had not worked with the team before,” Siegel said.

“We have done some testing in preparation and I have been doing a lot of work on the simulator to learn Daytona.

“Everyone at CarBahn with Peregrine Racing has done as much as possible to make me feel comfortable both on and off track and I am confident that we will be able to produce a good result, even with it being my first race in the car, series, and at Daytona.”

Dyer added: “We ended last year with excellent momentum and the No. 93 group really came together performing at the high level we aspired to achieve.

“I know everyone is excited to pick up where we left off in the quest towards constantly improving our program and the results.”

McQuarrie in New Role With No. 93 Duties

McQuarrie has shifted into a new role and will not co-drive the team’s No. 39 Audi alongside Jeff Westphal in 2021.

The pairing won the 2019 GS class championship and finished runner-up last year.

“For the past three seasons, I’ve headed to Daytona ready to race the No. 39 Audi R8 GT4 with Jeff Westphal and go for a championship,” McQuarrie said.

“But like everything in this world, things will be different for this Daytona.

“I’m super excited to race the No. 93 Audi R8 GT4 with Tom Dyer and Nolan Siegel. Tom and I have been friends for 20 years and have raced on many teams together and our driving styles are very similar.

“Nolan is a great up and coming talent in the open-wheel ranks so I’m very excited to show him the ways in IMSA and give him all the knowledge I can on what it takes to win in this series.

“My goal for this race, as always, is to win. The No. 93 is identical to the No. 39 and the team personal is all the same, so we know we have the winning package. We just need to go execute with no mistakes and we will have a shot at the top step of the podium.”

The team has yet to announce the lineup for its No. 39 Audi.
