Tyler Cooke and Chandler Hull will represent the United States in the GT4 European Series this season. The two American drivers were confirmed by MDM Motorsport today.
After a successful season with Alec Udell, MDM Motorsport will continue with an all-American line-up for one of its cars. Cooke and Hull join Dutch drivers Simon Knap and Daan Pijl, who were confirmed earlier this month.
Both Cooke and Hull have raced periodically in Europe, but 2020 will mark the first time both drivers will compete for overall class honours.
Cooke (25) has raced a BMW M4 GT4 before and was a race winner at Road America in 2018. After a less successful 2019 season, Cooke is hopeful that the Atlantic switch will allow him to showcase his abilities in front of the right people.
"2019 was probably a year to forget but I could not be more excited to kick start my career in Europe. Racing there has always been a dream for me and now I am turning it into reality with a championship winning team, MDM," said Cooke.
"The fact that I will be returning back to the BMW marque is the icing on the cake. Having finished 3rd overall in the IMSA GT4 series in 2018 with Bimmerworld it should be second nature to jump back into the seat and I'm really looking forward to keeping up MDM's momentum from last year!"
Hull made his professional racing debut in 2019 in SRO Motorsports America’s TC America series. Driving for Bimmerworld Racing, Hull claimed third place in the championship, as well as securing the Rookie of the Year award. Over the course of the season, he captured four podiums, seven top five finishes, as well as one pole position.
In 2020, Hull will combine his GT4 European Series campaign with another season in TC America with Bimmerworld. With the first round of the GT4 European Series clashing with TC America, Hull will not compete at Silverstone. Instead, Cooke will race with British-born Charlie Postins. Postins and Cooke raced together at the Nürburgring before.
