CrowdStrike Racing by APR retains Toby Sowery for IMSA Michelin Endurance Cup

Toby Sowery will join CrowdStrike Racing by APR for the remaining 2024 IMSA Michelin Endurance Cup rounds, starting with the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Presented by Cadillac (13-16 March).

Crowdstrike Racing have today announced Toby Sowery will once again team with George Kurtz and Colin Braun in the #04 ORECA 07-Gibson LMP2 prototype.

Toby is earning his reputation as one of the fastest-rising talents within the IMSA paddock since
joining Algarve Pro Racing’s ranks in the 2023-24 Asian Le Mans Series, winning the final race of the championship in APR’s car #25 at Yas Marinas Circuit in Abu Dhabi and during his 24-hour race debut with CrowdStrike Racing by APR’s Rolex 24 at Daytona when the team took P2 after an intense battle with eventual winner Era Motorsport.

Sowery caught the eye of motorsport pundits after delivering fastest laps in the official practice sessions at both Daytona and during the Asian Le Mans Series.  He has impressed with his speed, consistency and race craft and been highlighted as ‘one to watch’ during global coverage of both ALMS and IMSA.  It is these attributes, coupled with his professionalism that has earned him a place with Crowdstrike racing for the next instalments of the IMSA season at Sebring, Watkins Glen, Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta, where the team’s task will be to preserve its early lead and defend the IMEC title it won in 2023.

Toby Sowery (#04 CrowdStrike Racing by APR ORECA 07-Gibson LMP2): “I’m super excited to be back with CrowdStrike Racing by APR for the 2024 IMSA Michelin Endurance Cup. I’ve spent a lot of time with the team over winter and we have really gelled. After the Rolex 24 at Daytona, we are all especially hungry to get some wins, as well as the championship, and I’m sure George (Kurtz), Colin (Braun) and the APR team can be right up front fighting for it.”

Algarve Pro Racing Team Principal, Stewart Cox, said: “Toby (Sowery) has done a really good job since his LMP2 debut with Algarve Pro Racing in the opening round of the 2023-24 Asian Le Mans Series at Sepang International Circuit. We expected quite a lot from the outset because we tested a large number of Silver-rated drivers and Toby really stood out.

“It has been a steep learning curve but a successful one, and we have been delighted with his performances in the car, his rate of progress at each race and with how he has integrated into the team. In Dubai, he was instructed to go on maximum attack and showed well against some established Pros, and the win he, Chris (McMurry) and Freddie (Tomlinson) achieved in Abu Dhabi was excellent. He’s on an upward curve and there was no hesitation when it came to selecting him for our defence of the IMSA Michelin Endurance Cup.”
