BimmerWorld Racing was one of the most successful teams in the SRO GT4 America series in 2023. Team owner James Clay and Charlie Postins captured their second straight Am class championship and James Walker, Jr. and Tyler McQuarrie finished second in the Pro-Am class, taking the championship fight down to the final race at Indianapolis. Both driver pairings will be back in 2024 in BimmerWorld Racing M4 GT4s, in what has become one of the most competitive racing series in North America.

Clay and Postins have been a dominant force in the GT4 America Am class over the last two seasons and had seven victories in fourteen races in 2023. They’ll be looking for a three-peat in 2024 in the #36 M4 GT4. “Charlie and I really enjoyed the 2023 season,” says Clay. “We had a new car to adapt to, both as drivers and as a team, and the fields size and competitiveness grew, making it a challenging but also extremely rewarding year. We have a ton of fun at the track together, and certainly, winning a second championship makes racing even more enjoyable. But we’re both eager to attempt a third consecutive championship–and have an amazing time doing it with our friends.”

James Walker, Jr. is entering his fifth consecutive season with BimmerWorld and his second consecutive season driving with Tyler McQuarrie. The pair missed out on the Pro-Am class championship by one point in 2023 with eight podium finishes and three wins and will be a serious contender in 2024. “In 2023 the duo of James and Tyler was formidable,” says Clay. “The chemistry between these guys as a driver pair is great, and they are both an amazing part of the BimmerWorld team. We would all rather be defending the 2023 Pro-Am championship this year, but I think the desire is even higher in 2024 to capture the crown that eluded as last season.”

BimmerWorld Racing also competed in the SRO GT World Challenge America championship last season with an M4 GT3 entered for Bill Auberlen and Chandler Hull (who is racing an Aston Martin in ADAC GT Masters in Europe this year) but will be focused completely on the GT4 America class in 2024. “Our core BimmerWorld business is supplying parts for BMW road cars,” says Clay. “This includes learning, designing, and testing our parts and our packages in a variety of environments, and most visibly on the racetrack. We enjoyed the challenge of our GT3 program and working with a pure racecar, but it didn’t support our core racing goal.”
