Founded by PJ Hyett, a relative newcomer to this level of the sport but a passionate collector and docent of the sport’s history, and Gunnar Jeannette, whose resume in sports car racing is long and distinguished, AO Racing stepped into the fire of GTD in 2023. AO Racing came into professional sports car racing with force in 2023, and quickly became a fan favorite along the way with its liveries and drive. Now the team heads into its sophomore season of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship with an increased presence and preparing for a step up in competition. 2024 will mark a new history to be written for AO racing and TF Sport will be a major player.
