Samantha Tan, Chandler Hull, Jon Miller, and Nick Wittmer piloted the #438 ST Racing M4 GT4 to a GT4 class win in the 24H Series 24-hour race on the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya on September 4–5. It was the team’s second class win of the season; ST won the season opener in Dubai. The win moves the team to within five points of the overall GT Team’s championship lead.
Daren Jorgensen, Brett Strom, Danny van Dongen, and Nathan Freke in the #450 RHC Jorgensen-Strom M4 GT4 finished second in class, recovering after suffering two punctures early in the race.
Samantha Tan said, “This was an incredible effort by every single person in this team to execute a flawless run at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya! The team gave us an amazing car and even though it was everyone’s first time at the track, I think all the drivers drove very consistently to take the GT4 class win and finish 12th overall. I really can’t thank Jon, Nick, and Chandler enough for their amazing pace during the night. Amazing job! We’re now only five points behind the Overall GT championship leader, and are very excited for the next race in Sicily. ST Racing is right back in the championship hunt. Special thanks to our sponsors, BMW Motorsport and Bas Koeten Racing for their help in achieving this win!”
