Skip Barber Racing School will expand its presence in SRO America with a Toyota GR Supra GT4 EVO entry in Pirelli GT4 America this year. Matt Forbush will pilot the new entry with Skip Barber lead instructor Carter Fartuch.
Forbush competed in TC America in 2020 and advanced to GT4 America in 2021 behind the wheel of the Forbush Performance Toyota, where he has been competing since.
In 2023, Forbush Performance partnered with Skip Barber Racing School to take the program to the next level.
“I feel like this is the perfect match to continue the progress we have made in the Supra GT4 over the last two seasons,” said Forbush. “I could not ask for a better scenario than to run with Skip Barber.
“They provide so many opportunities to improve as a driver, not only in the Supra, but with the access I have to their team of world class instructors at just about every track in the country through their racing schools.
“On top of that, I will have Carter in the car with me to learn from and, most importantly, put the car up front. I am very optimistic about what the season holds for us.”
Fartuch is coming a strong season in TC America, where he debuted the Gen 11 HPD Civic Si and finished runner-up in the TCA class.
“I am beyond excited to compete in GT4 America alongside Matt Forbush, backed by our incredible Skip Barber Racing Team,” said Fartuch.
“Having come from GT racing, taking the last two years and competing in TC America was a very fun and new challenge, and I’m grateful for the success that I had in the series and the developmental work we were able to do.
“This season, I want to bring that same success back into GT racing behind the Toyota GR Supra GT4.”
“The decision to choose Toyota was an easy one as we have been utilizing the street version of the GR Supra at our schools and event activations,” said Skip Barber Racing School chief revenue officer Joe Monitto.
“Our students have a blast driving them and our instructors are consistently impressed with the on-track performance. When we decided to enter GT4 America, the Supra GT4 was our top choice.”
The Skip Barber Race Team will maintain its championship-winning TC America race team, following back-to-back class titles.
