Jason Bell, the reigning GT America champion, will return for the 2024 season in GT America behind the wheel of an Aston Martin Vantage GT3 Evo. Rejoining Flying Lizard Motorsports, Bell will compete in GT America Powered by AWS as he sets his sights on another championship-winning season.
“I am thrilled to announce my return to the esteemed Flying Lizard race team for the upcoming 2024 GT America season. This return signifies a continuation of our successful partnership, and I couldn’t be more excited about the prospects that lie ahead,” explained Bell. “After a tremendously triumphant run in the Aston Martin GT4, where we secured victory in the GT America GT4 Championship with an outstanding record of 16 podium finishes and no mechanical failures, the 2024 season promises a new challenge.”
Selling his pair of Aston Martin Vantage GT4s to upgrade to the Aston Martin Vantage GT3 Evo, Bell will work alongside Michael Cooper as his coach, and possibly the occasional co-driver as he will again compete in GT America. Clinching the GT4 driver title last season with two wins and an additional 13 podium finishes in the 18-round championship, Bell will kickstart his 2024 campaign at the famed Sonoma Raceway in California in April.
Bell added, “Joining forces once again with Michael Cooper as my driver coach and potential co-driver for upcoming events further strengthens our pursuit of excellence. His expertise and partnership have been pivotal in our past successes, and I am confident that our collaboration will continue to elevate our performance in the GT3 realm. Additionally, I am elated to work alongside my esteemed friend and teammate, Elias Sabo, who will be venturing into the GT3 category in an Aston Martin as well. Our shared enthusiasm and dedication to the sport promise an exciting journey ahead.”
“The Flying Lizard race team has been an incredible foundation for my career, and I am honored to rejoin this exceptional group of professionals. The team’s legacy of excellence and dedication aligns perfectly with my aspirations for the 2024 season,” continued the 2023 champion. “Together, we aim to push boundaries, pursue excellence, and uphold the esteemed reputation of the Flying Lizard race team in the GT America series. I am eager to hit the track and showcase our potential in the forthcoming season.”
