Woodcliff Lake, N.J. – Sept. 19, 2022 . . . Chandler Hull will make his 100th start in a BMW racing car during the Sept. 24-25 SRO GT World Challenge America weekend at Sebring International Raceway. Turning 28 years old on Sept. 26th, the young Texan will reach the milestone driving the No. 94 BimmerWorld Racing BMW M4 GT3 in the Pro/Am class with Bill Auberlen. The duo currently stands fourth in the Pro/Am class driver point standings, having scored seven podium finishes in the first 10 rounds of the 2022 championship.

Hull began racing only four years ago and has raced BMWs on three continents in the past seasons, participating in various series including SRO, IMSA, Asian Le Mans Series, 24H Series, NLS (Nürburgring Endurance Series) and DTM Trophy. 

Hull stated, “It will be extremely satisfying to reach my 100th BMW start with my teammate Bill Auberlen - and achieving this milestone at Sebring, where I won my first championship last year. I am honored to play a small part in BMW M Motorsport’s 50th anniversary year.”

Chandler’s co-driver also knows something about racing BMWs. Bill Auberlen has more race starts in a BMW than anyone in the world. In fact, earlier this season he recorded his 500th professional race with BMW at the Twelve Hours of Sebring. Auberlen leads all drivers in IMSA history with 65 victories and 45 pole positions in his storied career.

Auberlen added, “Chandler and I have had an outstanding year so far and are hopeful that Sebring will see our first victory – perhaps in his 100th BMW start. I have won here, and I would love to see Chandler reach that achievement at this famed track as well. We are excited to get out there for this end of season push.”

Test sessions for Rounds 11 and 12 begin on Thursday, Sept. 22 with official practice held on Friday. Saturday will see Round 11 races. Round 12 races will be held on Sunday. More information can be found at, www.gt-world-challenge-america.com.
