Jason Bell is set to be one of the busiest drivers in the SRO America paddock this weekend at Virginia International Raceway as the GMG Racing driver will be attempting to take part in eight races across three series and in two different Porsche race cars.
The 45-year-old Floridian will drive in both Pirelli GT4 Sprint and SprintX races behind the wheel of separate Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsports while also being part of the debuting GT Sports Club in a Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport.
Both GT4 series have three races this weekend, to make up for the canceled Sprint and SprintX rounds at St. Petersburg and Long Beach, respectively.
“It should be a hot, fun and an energy draining weekend,” said Bell. “Before the year started, I had anticipated running multiple classes but with some events off the calendar and make up races at others, this will by far be the busiest event weekend I have ever had.
“Add in the promoters test day on Wednesday, and we have five full days of on track action in three classes compiling for eight main events.”
While driving solo in both GT4 Sprint and Sports Club, Bell will have driver coach Andrew Davis as his co-driver for the 60-minute SprintX races.
“I am really looking forward to getting back behind the wheel with Andrew, and I think we have a strong chance to win all three races this weekend,” Bell said. “With a little luck, hopefully we will have multiple trips to the podium.”
Bell’s first chance to fight for a class win will come on Friday with the first GT4 SprintX race of the weekend, which gets underway at 1:05 p.m. ET.
