Classic BMW will return to Pirelli GT4 America competition this year, having confirmed a two-car BMW M4 GT4 effort in the SprintX series.

The Texas-based operation, which claimed the BMW Sports Trophy award last year, is set to again field GT4 Pro-Am class entries for the pairings of Toby Grahovec/Chris Ohmacht and Justin Raphael/Stevan McAleer.

Grahovec and Ohmacht will be looking to build on their 2018 season that saw the duo record two class victories en route to a third place finish in the SprintX championship.

“Chris and I enjoyed a very good opening year in 2018 together with the all-new BMW M4 GT4 from Fast Track Racing and Classic BMW,” said Grahovec.

“It was a learning experience in the new M4, but the car was outstanding since the first testing session.

“The overall performance of the BMW M4 GT4 helped Fast Track Racing and Classic BMW capture the incredible BMW Sports Trophy awarded to the top BMW customer team in the world.

“Now, we want to improve on last year’s showings beginning with the COTA weekend, since we call it our home track.”

The team will also field multiple BMW M240iRs in TC America this year.
