04.05.2021: In the USA, the second event of the season in GT America, GT4 America and TC America was held on the first weekend in May. The venue was the “Circuit Of The Americas“ in Austin, in the US state of Texas.

In the USA, the second event of the season in GT America, GT4 America and TC America was held on the first weekend in May. The venue was the “Circuit Of The Americas“ in Austin, in the US state of Texas.

In the two races held in each of the series, BMW teams again enjoyed numerous successes. In GT America, Sean Quinlan (USA) celebrated the GT4 class win in race two at the wheel of the #119 BMW M4 GT4 of Stephen Cameron Racing.

In GT4 America, Quinlan ended race two in an outstanding third place overall (second place in the Pro-Am class) together with Gregory Liefooghe (USA).

Jon Miller and Chandler Hull (both USA) claimed a class victory in the Silver category in the #94 BimmerWorld Racing BMW M4 GT4 in GT4 America.

The Classic BMW team finished on the podium in the Silver class in both races with the #11 BMW M4 GT4: the duo of Steve McAleer (GBR) and Toby Grahovec (USA) came home third and second in their class.


In TC America, the BMW M2 CS Racing was unbeatable in Sunday’s race.

The BMW teams celebrated an impressive one-two-three. Jacob Ruud (USA) of the Classic BMW team made it onto the top step of the podium with the #81 BMW M2 CS Racing.

ST Racing driver Samantha Tan (CAN) was runner-up in the number 428 car, while Steve Streimer (USA / #30 Hard Motorsport) completed the success in third place.

The BMW teams had already enjoyed a top-three lock-out in the TCX class in Saturday’s race, with Ruud and Tan in first and second place, followed by John Hennessey (USA / #50 Classic BMW) in third.
