Todd Coleman Racing the latest squad to join #TeamAMR with a joint IMSA/SRO programme for 2023

Wednesday, December 28, 2022


Todd Coleman Racing has become the latest squad to make the move over to the Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT4 platform in time for the 2023 season with a part IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge Series undertaking on top of a full season SRO Series commitment.

Having raced a Toyota Supra last season within the GT4 America and GT America Series with Lexus GTD driver Aaron Telitz, both drivers have spent recent weeks together testing their latest AMR acquisition in time for the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge Series that starts at Daytona at the end of January.

With Coleman’s team only publicly confirming their intentions last night, we will see their green and black #69 car enter next month’s MPC opener from Daytona with Coleman being joined by co-driver Conrad Grunewald for that four-hour race.

“I am constantly looking to improve as a driver, and the only way to truly improve is to race against the best, and the best always show up for the Michelin Pilot Challenge four-hour endurance race at Daytona,” said Coleman. “We spent a significant amount of the off-season putting together a program that we believe will be a podium and championship contender.”

“A big key to having the right foundation as we start this endeavour is partnering with Mike Johnson and the Archangel Motorsports team, and Aston Martin Racing, all of whom know how to win,” said Coleman. “For me, life has become about the experiences; racing with Conrad and the Archangel Team at Daytona in my first-ever endurance race is certainly going to go down as one of my more epic experiences” said Coleman.

Which further rounds of the IMSA season beyond Daytona that Coleman will enter has yet to be confirmed, but his new stock of two AMR Vantage GT4’s (one being the former Manny Franco IMSA MPC car of last season) places him in a good position to undertake parallel programmes with only a few potential calendar clashes across the year.

This announcement brings the expected AMR grid size at the Daytona opener now up to four with the two Team TGM and Van Der Steur cars already announced, with more still waiting in the wings.

The four-hour BMW M Endurance Challenge MPC race will run on Friday 27th January and should again be streamed live via the IMSA website for international viewers.
