Greenemeier joins the Heart of Racing SRO lineup

PHOENIX, Ariz. (14 February 2024) – The Heart of Racing (HOR) welcomes Hannah Greenemeier to its 2024 SRO GT4 lineup. Greenemeier will join Hannah Grisham in the No. 26 Aston Martin Vantage for the Pirelli GT4 America season in the AM category. Roman De Angelis and Gray Newell will team up once again on board the No. 24 Aston Martin Vantage in the Pirelli GT4 America Pro/Am category. Newell will pull double duty, also competing the GT America powered by AWS in the No. 25 Aston Martin Vantage.

Greenemeier joins the Heart of Racing after climbing through the karting ranks since the age of five. The Colorado native was the first female to win the X-30 ProTour Championship class in the history of SKUSA in 2021 as she looks forward to making her sports car debut this season in Pirelli GT4 America.

“Getting a call from the team to join the Heart of Racing for the 2024 season was probably the best day of my life so far,” said Greenemeier. “To be able to drive for a team that has had so much success means so much to me and my family. I’m looking forward to getting the season started with the team in April at Sonoma. I know that I have a lot to learn about sports car racing, but I know that with the help of my co-driver, Hannah Grisham, and everyone else on the team that I will get up to speed quickly. I can’t thank Gabe, the Bernier family, Ian, Paul and everyone on the team for this incredible opportunity.”

Grisham, who was selected from the team’s 2022 all-female shootout, returns to the Heart of Racing team for her second year after completing her first Pirelli GT4 America season in 2023.

“I’m extremely excited for the opportunity to continue with the Heart of Racing for a second year in GT4 America,” said Grisham. “I am looking forward to this season with a year under my belt and a more solid foundation to stand on. Year number one has taken me to most of the tracks, helped me to understand my competition, and have a better grasp of our Aston Martin Vantage. My goal for this year is to have strong, consistent finishes and hopefully be in a spot towards the end of the year to fight for the championship. I think Hannah Greenemeier and I are capable of this and I’m eager to get to work with her in April at Sonoma.”

The all-female lineup completed their first test as teammates last week at APEX Motor Club.

Competing alongside in Pirelli GT4 America will be De Angelis, who is a regular in the team’s No. 27 Aston Martin Vantage in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.

De Angelis rejoins Newell in the Aston Martin Vantage, the duo having scored three wins (NOLA, Road America, Indianapolis Motor Speedway) in the Pro/Am category during the 2023 season, closing out the year with a run to third place in the season finale.

“I’m super happy to be back again with Gray competing in the GT4 Pro/Am class with the Heart of Racing,” said De Angelis. “I really enjoyed my time there last year and being teamed up again with Gray who continues to get faster every weekend leaves us with another good shot at race wins and hopefully a Pro/Am championship.”

Newell will begin his fourth season in GT America powered by AWS along with his Pirelli GT4 America duties. Last season Newell scored two pole awards (VIRginia International Raceway and Indianapolis Motor Speedway) in GT America powered by AWS. The young driver finished the season with five runs to the podium.

The SRO America season will kick off the weekend of April 5-7th at Sonoma Raceway with both Pirelli GT4 America and GT America powered by AWS in action.

Greenemeier will be featured in MAVTV’s season premiere of their show ‘On The Rise’ on Thursday February 15th at 8:00 pm ET/PT. ‘On The Rise’ focuses on young up and coming drivers who are working their way through the ranks to try and finish at the top level of motorsports.
