BRASELTON, Ga. (October 16, 2023) – CrowdStrike Racing by Algarve Pro Racing (APR) closed its season in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship with an LMP2 class victory in the 10-hour Petit Le Mans at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta.
It was the second IMSA win for drivers George Kurtz, Ben Hanley and Nolan Siegel in the No. 04 CrowdStrike ORECA 07-Gibson prototype. Saturday’s winning LMP2 trio combined to lead a race-high 165 of 390 laps.
With the win at Road Atlanta, Kurtz was also able to take home the IMSA Jim Trueman Award, given to the leading Bronze driver in the LMP2 class. With the award, Kurtz earns an automatic entry to compete in the 2024 24 Hours of Le Mans. Kurtz and APR will look to repeat their podium performance after winning the LMP2 Pro-Am class at Le Mans this year, the first time the team raced together at the French classic.
Saturday’s victory capped a highly successful season for CrowdStrike Racing. In addition to Petit Le Mans, last weekend, Kurtz won the Fanatec GT World Challenge America title in the Pro-Am category with a class win at the Intercontinental GT Challenge’s Indianapolis Eight Hours. Additionally, the CrowdStrike Racing by APR program also won in LMP2 at the Six Hours of The Glen in June.
CrowdStrike Racing by APR will soon begin preparations for the 2024 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season. The team will open the season with the Rolex 24 At Daytona on January 27-28 from Daytona International Speedway.
