Carrus Callas Race Team (CCRT) has competed in the SRO GT4 America series over the last two years with the Toyota Supra GT4, but has decided to switch to the BMW M4 GT4 for the 2024 season with drivers Nick Shanny and Terry Borcheller.

CCRT finished third in the Am class championship in 2023 and had the first win for the Supra GT4 in North America when they won overall and in class at Sonoma Raceway. The duo of Shanny and Borcheller is expected to remain in the GT4 America Am class for the upcoming season, and Shanny will also compete on his own in the single-driver GT America series. Borcheller has a lot of experience with racing BMWs over the last 25 years, including seasons in the E36, E46, and E92 M3s.

Team owner Tony Callas felt that it was time to move on to the BMW after two successful seasons with Toyota. “Carrus Callas Race Team (CCRT) has collectively decided to go with the BMW M4 in SRO and look forward to a great partnership with BMW as they have a clear path forward with their GT4 platform. Considering that BMW revealed their new M4 GT4 G82 car just this last year, not to mention the fact they have an updated GT4 Evo coming soon. We have great hopes and believe BMW is the best manufacturer for us moving forward into the 2024 season. Our initial meetings with them have been excellent, and we are very excited to create a new partnership with BMW in the new year.”

In addition to the M4 GT4 programs, CCRT is also planning to run an M2 CS Cup in the TCX class of TC America for driver Chris Walsh. The SRO GT4 America and TC America season opens at Sonoma Raceway on the weekend of April 5th-7th.
