Marco Polo Motorsports has committed to a full-season Pirelli GT4 America campaign with its KTM X-Bow GT4 Evo.

The confirmation of a continued full-time effort in SRO America competition comes after the California-based team had started the season at Sonoma Raceway with only plans to contest selected races this year.

Nicolai Elghanayan and Mads Siljehaug, who scored fourth and third place finishes in the Silver class in last month’s season-opener, will be back together as co-drivers for the second consecutive year.

It marks Elghanayan’s fourth year in the series, having scored five wins to date.

“I’m happy to come back to GT4 America with Marco Polo Motorsports,” said Elghanayan.

“Mads and I are excited to drive the KTM X-Bow Evo this season. We look forward to the great competition this year.”

Elghanayan and the former ADAC GT4 Germany champion Mads Siljehaug are also currently competing in the Creventic 24H Series, where the duo just earned a win in the KTM at Circuit Paul Ricard with Reiter Engineering, and sit second in the class championship.

“Getting an invitation from Marco Polo Motorsports for racing in America always makes me feel humble and happy,” said Siljehaug.

“I’m super happy to return and race in the SRO America series this season, and I’m ready to hit all the amazing tracks again.”

The team is back in action this weekend for Rounds 3 and 4 of the season at Circuit of The Americas.
