SAN ANTONIO, Texas – CSJ Motorsports and the newly formed BSPort Racing have expanded the reach of Aston Martin’s Customer Racing program in North America.
BSPort Racing, with support from CSJ Motorsports, will contest the Pirelli GT4 America SprintX season next year with the Aston Martin Vantage GT4. BSPort Racing joins Automatic Racing, which campaigned an Aston Martin Vantage GT4 in IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge GS class competition in 2019, as the first to contest the newest Aston Martin platform in North America.
The newest Aston Martin Vantage GT4 has been purchased through CSJ Motorsports, the official North American distributor for Aston Martin Vantage GT3 and GT4 race cars. BSPort Racing’s machine will be piloted in the Pro-Am category by Bryan Putt, the reigning TC America TCR DSG Cup champion for TCR cars running a direct shift gearbox, and Kenton Koch.
“We saw the speed of the Aston Martin Vantage GT4 in the hands of Automatic Racing in this season’s IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge,” Susan Jary, co-principal at CSJ Motorsports, said. “This is the first to jump into the SRO Americas venue, but we’re confident it’s in capable hands. To see this come together this early in the offseason will give us a chance to be sure that Bryan and BSPort Racing have everything they need to hit the ground running when next season begins.”
Based in San Antonio, Texas, CSJ Motorsports is on-hand with a parts truck and support at every IMSA and SRO event with an Aston Martin on the entry list. In addition to parts at and away from the track, CSJ Motorsports offers diagnostic and technical support to each North American team.
The Aston Martin Vantage GT4 was carefully selected to be the base platform at the formation of BSPort Racing as Putt adds team owner to his driving duties.
“After our first year in SRO America, and winning the DSG Cup title, it’s a big leap to move into team ownership and SprintX in the Aston Martin GT4,” said Putt. “We feel confident that it will be a great season. It will definitely be a learning year for the entire group, and we are very excited for the challenge.”
