McLaren Automotive secured top honours in the Sprint Manufacturers’ Championship standings at the 2019 Pirelli GT4 America Sprint season finale at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The result was confirmed as the 570S GT4 claimed a victory and three podium finishes across the weekend’s two races for Customer Racing teams Blackdog Speed Shop and Andretti Autosport.
The results of the double-header saw Blackdog Speed Shop clinch the runner-up position in the Sprint Teams’ Championship standings, ending the year on a high with outright race victory and a further Am class podium. The team’s two drivers – Michael Cooper and Tony Gaples – also took the vice champion positions in the Sprint Pro and Am Drivers’ Championships respectively.
Cooper led the charge throughout the 2019 Pirelli GT4 America Sprint season with three race wins and a further five podiums at the wheel of the #10 570S GT4 of Blackdog Speed Shop. This level of success kept Cooper and the team in the title hunt until the final race of the season. This is the second title for the 570S GT4 in the 2019 season, after ALFAB Racing secured the GT4 Scandinavia Championship earlier this month.
With a double podium in the Sprint races in Las Vegas, Jarret Andretti achieved a 100 percent record of podium finishes over the weekend, clinching his first SprintX victories of the season alongside teammate Colin Mullan as the pair convincingly took top honors in both races to end the season on a high.
