Fast Track Racing/Classic BMW has added to its BMW M4 GT4 lineup for the Pirelli GT4 America season-opening weekend at Circuit of the Americas with the addition of Jeff Sexton and Ray Mason.

The veteran combo will pilot the team’s No. 254 BMW GT4 in the SprintX opener on March 1-3.

They join the previously announced Justin Raphael and Stevan McAleer (No. 17) and Toby Grahovec and Chris Ohmacht (No. 92) in the three-car GT4 America operation.

“I am very excited to be returning to World Challenge and to be moving up to the Pirelli GT4 America SprintX category,” said Sexton.

“I can think of no better team to be joining than Classic BMW as they won the prestigious BMW Sports Trophy award in 2018.

“The BMW M4 GT4 proved last year that it is one of the best GT4 cars and I can’t wait to get started at Circuit of the Americas driving alongside Ray.”

Mason added: “I really enjoy the COTA circuit and I have raced the 24 Hours of COTA the last two years.

“I’m very familiar with the track and I’m anxious to go back for the GT4 race with World Challenge and Classic BMW. I have a good time racing in World Challenge. I like those people a lot.”
