Current GTD class points leaders Paul Miller Racing will make the step up to the GTD-Pro class for the 2024 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Champion season. The confirmation comes while the entries for the class in 2024 continue to grow with the additions of two new Corvette GT3 entries as well as one coming from the brand new Ford Mustang GT3.
The team, which is based out of Georgia, holds the class points lead as their BMW M4 GT3 drivers Bryan Sellers and Madison Snow have claimed four GTD class wins after their win Sunday at Road America. While the details of the 2024 program have yet to be announced, team manager Mitchell Simmons stated, "We are excited about the challenge a step up in class brings to our program and I know the entire team is looking forward to competing at that level.”
Currently, the BMW manufacturer does not have a car in the GTD-Pro class. With the addition of the Paul Miller Racing entry, and if PMR stays with the BMW machine next season, this move would serve as the first BMW M4 GT3 car in the GTD-Pro class. Stay tuned to more information regarding this move in the coming months.
