After several weeks of waiting, Tyler Maxson is finally able to confirm his intentions for the 2024 race season. Set for his GS debut in the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge, Maxson will co-drive the #50 Hattori Motorsports Toyota GT4 machine alongside perennial front-runner and multi-time motorsports champion Jack Hawksworth.
“It has been a long off-season,” explained Maxson. “This program is well put together and gives Jack and me the best opportunity for success. A huge thank you to Hattori Motorsports for the opportunity, and I am excited to get started.”
Hitting the track this past weekend for the Roar Before the 24, Maxson piloted a Hattori Motorsports entry for the first time alongside his new co-driver, Jack Hawksworth. Having driven the Toyota GT4 in other programs, Maxson felt up to speed and immediately comfortable with the car during the Roar Before the 24 weekend.
Maxson continued, “I drove the Toyota GT4 last season and had success. Working alongside Jack will provide valuable experience to both the team and me as we proved this past weekend during the Roar. I think we both have the pace to win races so it could be a very powerful program.”
“We are happy to have Tyler in one of our cars and feel that with him, partnered with Jack, we have a strong driver combination that can contend for race wins and podium results throughout 2024,” added Hattori Motorsports’ Brian Richards. “We have big plans in the future and believe Jack and Tyler could lead our program.”
Tyler Maxson, Jack Hawksworth, and Hattori Motorsports will be looking for their first victory of the season on January 26 at the famed Daytona International Speedway during the annual Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona festival.
