After a very successful rookie season in 2021, the Salt Lake City, Utah based Zelus Motorsports team is stepping up with an eye on race wins and competing for championships in 2022. Last season, Zelus scored a total of ten podium finishes, seven in GT America powered by AWS, two in Pirelli GT4 America, and one in Fanatec GT World Challenge America powered by AWS. Jason Harward earned third in the GT America SRO3 Class Driver’s Championship. The team became a fan favorite with striking graphics that were impossible to miss.
Team Principal Tigh Isaac confirmed the return this year of Jason Harward and Madison Snow in a Lamborghini Huracan Evo GT3 for a full season in GT World Challenge America. Jason Harward will also contest the full season of GT America, starting this weekend on the Streets of St. Petersburg.
Jeff Burton joins Zelus for 2022 with a dual campaign in GT World Challenge America and GT America. He’ll be joined by longtime Lamborghini pro Corey Lewis, who with K-PAX Racing earned a race win and multiple podiums last season. Burton will also drive a second Lamborghini in the GT America sprint series where he finished second in the championship last season.
Last but not least, Sean Whalen returns to the team for the full season after several outings last year. He’ll continue to drive the #888 Aston Martin Vantage AMR GT4 in GT America.
Thanks to support from partners 2A4Life, Burton Lumber, Lions Not Sheep, and Lamborghini, this year the Zelus Motorsports team is excited for its expanded program in SRO America.
Jason Harward: “I am very excited for our second year in SRO. I feel like Zelus Motorsports got its feet under them after a very successful rookie season! I am Also very excited to share a seat with Madison again for this season in GTWCA. We started clicking towards the end of last season and we are ready to bring the fire this year.”
Corey Lewis: “I am beyond excited to join Zelus Motorsports for the 2022 season with Jeff Burton! Their program has come a long way in a very short period of time and their combination with Lamborghini Sauadra Corse is a win win! I’m also looking forward to supporting Jeff in his duties with Zelus Motorpsorts in the GT America races! Sonoma can’t come soon enough and I know we as a team will accomplish great things this season!
Jeff Burton: “A lot of good things happened in 2021 especially in GT America where we took second place overall. We’re looking to improve upon that this year. It was a steeper learning curve in GT World Challenge where we seemed to struggle. This year, with the change in moving to Zelus and with a new pro co-driver Corey Lewis we look to step up our performance and hopefully find ourselves on numerous podiums!”
Sean Whalen: “I feel like I’m just gonna send it. I wish I had more time to learn but I’ll learn when I’m out there with the guys.”
Madison Snow: “I’m looking forward to another season with Zelus, we learned a lot the first season and are ready to apply that this year. We have worked hard in the off-season and are looking forward to the increased competition this year. Last year Jason and I were able to get one podium, this year we are aiming higher!”
Tigh Isaac: “Coming into our second season as a team, I am ambitious about achieving great results. The entire Zelus Motorsports team has been working hard during the off season to prepare. Between all of our drivers, I feel like we have a deep talent pool. The crew looks forward to another awesome year.”
