Pirelli GT4 America competitor Paul Terry has passed away.
SRO America confirmed the death of the WR Racing team owner/driver on Friday, with all other details unknown at this time.
Terry was a longtime driver in the North American series, initially in TC America before graduating to GT4 America with Rearden Racing.
He stepped into a team principal role in 2021 with the formation of WR Racing, for which Terry raced in an Aston Martin Vantage GT4 alongside Brandon Davis, Owen Trinkler and Aston Martin junior Valentin Hasse-Clot over the course of the season.
Terry and Hasse-Clot competed together in October’s season finale at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, provisionally taking the Pro-Am class victory in Race 2 until a post-race exclusion.
In a social media post, Hasse-Clot revealed that he and Terry were due to race together in the series next year.
“Life is unfair,” he wrote on Twitter. “We’ve lost a great person in Paul Terry.
“Less than two months ago, he was the first to give me a chance in the U.S. Because he was so proud of it, I can say we were going to compete in the 2022 championship.
“I’ll go get them for you big man. Thank you, love you.”
