Traveling across the country for the next round of the Pirelli GT4 America series, 2019 podium winner Jason Bell will have a new look at the Long Beach Grand Prix. Dubbed the ‘Roar on the Shore,’ Bell will pilot a Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 CS MR as he debuts his new ride on the tight confines of the Long Beach, California street course.
“We had a vey good test with Porsche early last week and it really suits my driving style,” explained Jason Bell. “I am excited to be back on a temporary street circuit and see what we can do, especially behind the wheel of this super competitive Cayman.”
Scoring a podium late in 2018 at the Sebring International Raceway, Bell also stood on the second step of the podium in GT4 America SprintX competition at the Circuit of the Americas back in early March as he co-drove with young hot shoe Alec Udell.
Testing at the Weathertech Raceway Laguna Seca, Bell ran some very quick and competitive lap times to winners of previous events at the same facility and has his hopes set high for the next event on his 2019 calendar.
“It is a jam packed weekend so we need to take advantage of all the track time possible,” explained the Tampa Bay, Florida resident. “We really only get four on track sessions, so we have been focusing on making sure we unload with a balanced street course setup to ensure a quick pace right out of the box.”
Official practice sessions get underway Friday, April 12th at 3:30 pm PDT and Saturday, April 13th at 10:00 am PDT, with the Qualifying session on Saturday at 10:45 am PDT. Sunday’s 50-minute Round 3 competition goes green-flag at 10:00am PDT.
