GT World Challenge America: Sonoma Raceway Protected by CrowdStrike Event (finally) Kicks Off!

Fanatec GT World Challenge America Powered by AWS is thrilled to announce the commencement of our much-awaited first weekend of racing at the prestigious Sonoma Raceway, an event proudly protected by CrowdStrike. Despite facing an early setback, our spirits remain undeterred, and we are eager to start our weekend festivities.

SRO America extends their thanks to the team at Sonoma Raceway for their prompt and effective efforts in repairing the pavement, ensuring that the race continues for teams, drivers, and fans.

The track action is set to commence this Saturday, with Practice 2 scheduled at 10:15 AM PDT. This 60-minute session is crucial for teams and drivers to fine-tune their machines, but also set their fastest laps. 

The best times from each driver during Practice 2 will determine the grid positions for Race 1 and Race 2, respectively. It will be important for both drivers to set a lap time during the sole practice session. 

Be sure not to miss Race 1, which promises adrenaline-pumping action at 4 PM PDT. You can catch every moment live on GT World’s YouTube Channel and on the SRO Motorsports Twitch channel with live streams hosted by Ash Vandelay, bringing the thrill of the race directly to you, wherever you may be.

Everyone’s patience and understanding is greatly appreciated as we navigated this unforeseen challenge. Your support fuels our passion and dedication to delivering an unforgettable racing experience.

Spectators are invited to explore our paddocks, where exciting and interactive experiences await. Dive into the world of racing at the Toyota and Optima booth’s sim racing setups. And when hunger strikes, a variety of local food trucks are on-site to satisfy your cravings.

Let the races begin!
