Think of your favorite automotive brand. Maybe you have more than one. Allow yourself to feel the emotion each brand brings to you. If you wanted to be where you could see and experience that manufacturer, it would be at an SRO Motorsports America event.
SRO Motorsports America hosts 21 OEM brands throughout its four racing platforms. Each manufacturer has a story to tell through the diverse machinery it brings to track; from there, teams and drivers bring the story to life. The continued growth of series and storytelling is all by design and partly due to founder Stephane Ratel.
Ratel brought forth the vision of a GT-focused governing body after having been one of the godfathers of Balance of Performance and original forebearers of homologation on a grander scale. SRO Motorsports America is where OEM brands can gather and advance alongside their customers.
A book of 21 manufacturers proves that things are going to plan while there remains plenty of room to build. One symbol of growth came with the announcement of the new GR Cup North America series created by Toyota. A more consistent measure is watching teams and drivers advance through machinery and series.
In 2023 alone, SRO Motorsports America will see Nissan reemerge with a new GT4 race car, and BMW brings the all new M4 GT4 alongside McLaren and Toyota. Porsche, Ferrari and Lamborghini teams will race a new GT3. In the touring car classes, teams debut a new Hyundai Elantra N TC and Honda Civic Type R TCX. New cars inspire more competition and evoke creativity among groups.
Partners, Manufacturers and all others for the official launch of the SRO Motorsports America season at Sonoma Raceway from March 30 through April 2 but not before GT America presented by AWS conquer rounds one and two. The opening races occur at the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg on March 3 through 5.
