TRD (Toyota Racing Development) development driver Isabella Robusto, is gearing up for a busy 2023 racing season as the 18-year-old will join Smooge Racing in the SRO GT4 America Series presented by Pirelli. She will be joined by co-driver Joey DaSilva who will be making his debut in GT4 America competition after competing in GT America in 2022. DaSilva and Robusto will campaign the new Toyota GR Supra GT4 EVO with South 6 IT Staffing.
“Getting the opportunity to compete in GT4 America with Smooge Racing and South 6 is really exciting for me,” said Robusto. “TRD and Smooge Racing have given me the tools to help my craft both on and off the race track, and I’m looking forward to the challenge of learning the new GR Supra GT4 EVO and new tracks this season.”
“I am very excited for the challenge ahead in GT4 America with Isabella and South 6,” said DaSilva. “I learned a lot last year in GT America, and Smooge Racing has helped me develop my skills to take this next step in my career.”
Multi-championship-winning Smooge Racing is carrying its momentum from the 2022 season as they are set to field multiple entries in GT4 America, GT America, and the new GR Cup Series. “We had a great season last year as we expanded to a four-car team. We are building on that foundation as we are fielding multiple GR Supra GT4 Evos in both GT4 America and GT America along with four GR86’s in the GR Cup Series,” said Team Principal Kevin Conway. “We are incredibly excited to have Isabella and Joey competing in GT4 America with South 6.”
Additional driver line-ups for GT4 America, GT America and GR Cup will be announced at a later date.
