ALTON, Va. – The combination of Toby Grahovec and Stevan McAleer have returned to the 2021 Pirelli GT4 America SprintX competition after a few seasons driving other machinery. And they are ready for another strong performance with the #11 Fast Track Racing/Classic BMW BMW M4 GT4 sports car this weekend (June 4-6) at the fast VIRginia International Raceway.
Last month at Circuit of the Americas (COTA), Grahovec and McAleer team up for the 60-minute, two-driver action with an impressive showing in the Silver division at the Texas road course. Toby and Stevan, champions in SRO America competition in previous seasons, returned to the Top 3 podium in both features at COTA with second and third place finishes.
In the very competitive Pirelli GT4 America SprintX division, Grahovec and McAleer worked well as a tandem in the Silver category with third in Saturday’s main event and came back on Sunday to improve one more podium step with second in the Silver class.
“It was a delight to drive with Stevan in the BMW M4 GT4 in the SprintX competition,” said Grahovec, who serves as the team manager of the Fast Track Racing team. “I hadn’t been back in the M4 in a long time and it’s always great to get on the podium in those events. The GT4 races are extremely competitive, and you have to be on your game as a driver in those events. It was great for the Fast Track Racing team to get the Fast Track Racing/Classic BMW M4 back on the podium too.
“Stevan and I have won our respective classes at VIR in the past,” Toby said. “Now, we are teaming up and looking to record a victory at the fast VIR road course. We have had fun working together again and the field is strong this weekend. So, we’ll have to have everything in place to score a win.”
Pirelli GT4 America SprintX competitors hit the VIR 3.27-mile, 17-turn race surface this Friday for the opening practice round at 10:30 a.m. EDT. Qualifying is schedule for Saturday beginning at 8:00 a.m. followed by Race 1 at 11:30 a.m. Sunday’s GT4 SprintX Race 2 is set for 11:10 a.m. EDT.
