Matt Travis and Jason Hart have continued their winning ways, with the pair claiming their fourth consecutive Pirelli GT4 America overall victory in Sunday’s round at Circuit of The Americas.

Travis held off a hard-charging Kenny Murillo for victory in the 60-minute race following a late-race pass on the No. 119 Stephen Cameron Racing BMW M4 GT4 of Sean Quinlan.

Quinlan, who emerged as the leader following the round of mid-race pit stops and driver changes, enjoyed a hard-fought battle with Travis for the lead.

Travis got around the BMW with only eight minutes to go.

Murillo and co-driver Christian Szymczak picked up Silver class honors with the second place overall finish in their No. 72 Mercedes-AMG GT4, which rebounded from gearbox issues in Saturday’s ace.

Quinlan held on to finish third overall and second in the Pro-Am class, ahead of the No. 11 Classic BMW M4 GT4 of Stevan McAleer in fourth.

The No. 89 RENNtech Mercedes, which led early in the hands of Aaron Povoledo, completed the top-five overall with Ross Chouest at the wheel after losing nearly ten seconds in the pit stop.

Chouest rejoined in sixth and managed to pass the No. 15 BSport Aston Martin Vantage GT4 of Bryan Putt for position during his stint.

The No. 7 Nolasport with OGH Porsche of Sean Gibbons and Sam Owen, meanwhile, picked up Am class honors with their 11th place overall finish.

Nearly half of the race ran behind the safety car after a multi-car pileup on the opening lap triggered by the No. 94 BimmerWorld entry of Chandler Hull.

The incident also collected Bill Auberlen’s BMW and the Mercedes driven by Guy Cosmo.

The race restarted with 36 minutes to go and ran green until the end.
