Mario Farnbacher is back in the GT World Challenge America. The driver from Ansbach in Bavaria will once again compete in the championship alongside Ashton Harrison with Racers Edge Motorsports. The duo pilots an Acura NSX GT3 Evo22. Together, Farnbacher and Harrison clinched four wins in the 2022 season on their way to being crowned champions in the Pro-Am category. In 2023, the Acura works driver and his American co-driver are moving up to the Pro class.
“I’m happy to be working with Racers Edge Motorsports and Ashton again this year,” said the 30-year-old. “We’re a strong team that was able to celebrate success together last year. Of course, we would like to continue the momentum in the new class. It will definitely not be easy, but we have a promising package.”
The first two races of the GT World Challenge America are scheduled for 1 and 2 April at Sonoma Raceway. The weekend starts on Friday with two free practice sessions, followed by two qualifying sessions on Saturday. A total of seven race weekends and 13 rounds comprises the calendar.
