CrowdStrike Racing by Riley has confirmed its return to Fanatec GT World Challenge America powered by AWS, with Colin Braun and George Kurtz continuing their driving partnership in the team’s Mercedes-AMG GT3 Evo.

Additionally Kurtz will defend his GT America powered by AWS title, beginning with this weekend’s opening rounds at St. Pete, also in a Riley-prepared Mercedes.

“I’m looking forward to our team building on our strong 2022 performance,” Kurtz said. “We have great chemistry within CrowdStrike Racing by Riley that puts us in an optimal position for success.

“I am also thrilled to continue with Colin and Mercedes-AMG for another year and reach new milestones in our career together.”

The Kurtz/Braun pairing won three times in the Pro-Am class last year and were championship leaders for most of the season.

The coming year will be their sixth year as a driving duo, who have eight wins together.

“It’s great to be back with CrowdStrike Racing by Riley for the 2023 SRO America season and driving alongside George once again,” Braun said.

“People are recognizing George’s ability, but I have known this since our early days working together. To see his hard work and dedication culminate into a 2022 GT America championship was amazing.

“I’m looking forward to kicking off the season at Sonoma with the entire CrowdStrike team as we look to improve upon 2022 and contend for a championship.”

CrowdStrike will continue as the Official Internet Security and Cloud Security Provider for SRO America, while expanding its reach to include title sponsorship of the CrowdStrike 24 Hours of Spa, as part of a multi-year deal.
