After qualifying in an outstanding P6 in Class, Tommy Johnson started the Sunday race for RENNtech. Johnson pushed hard while avoiding a couple early race scuffles as he was able to survive both Safety Car periods without any incidents.

At the half way mark, Michael Auriemma took over from Johnson with the car in P5. While steadily increasing his pace, Michael closed the gap to the leading cars. He crossed the checkered flag close to our competitors and steered clear of a few potential incidents. The #89 AMG GT4 finished P3 in class due to 2 post race penalties and scored the first podium for RENNtech Motorsports in 2023.
“We had a good weekend - the Team delivered a great car for the race and scoring our first podium feels fantastic! We intend to capitalize on this momentum moving forward, and we’ll be looking for more Podiums at COTA” said Team Manager Sascha Kempter.
Severe weather on Saturday led to delays in the schedule. Due to the nearing sunset, Saturdays Race ultimately had to be postponed and will be made up during Round 6 at Sebring International Raceway Sep 22-24. With only Race 1 in the books, RENNtech Motorsports left NOLA with 15 additional points keeping MB Gram #89 RENNtech Motorsports AMG GT4 in the hunt for the championship.
The next race weekend will be held May 19 – 21, at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, TX.
