Telitz Rejoins Todd Coleman Racing for GS Campaign

'Aaron Telitz will rejoin Todd Coleman Racing for its IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge effort in the GS class with an Aston Martin Vantage GT4, it has been announced.

It comes after a mid-season switch from Pirelli GT4 America to the IMSA-sanctioned championship that saw Coleman contest eight of the 11 Pilot Challenge races with the Mike Johnson, Archangel Motorsports-run operation.

Telitz, who has been downgraded to the Michelin Endurance Cup-only races with Vasser Sullivan in the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, last drove with Coleman in the 2022 season in SRO America competition with a Toyota GR Supra GT4.

He replaces Billy Johnson as Coleman’s season-long co-driver.

“Last season was a great learning experience for me in Michelin Pilot Challenge,” said Coleman.

“Given we are competing against some of the best GT4 drivers in the world, my expectations were fairly measured last year.

“This season, we are committed to raising the bar. Working with an experienced group like Archangel Motorsports, with the leadership of sports car racing veteran Mike Johnson really adds to the strength of the program.

“Aaron Telitz has been a great friend and coach over the years, and I’m excited to bring him back into the fold. We’ll certainly have some fun this season.”

Telitz added: “I’m really looking forward to racing with Todd Coleman and Archangel Motorsports in the Michelin Pilot Challenge Series in 2024.

“It’s going to be a lot of fun getting to work with Todd again. It’ll be my first try at the GS championship.

“I know we’ve got our work cut out for us as it’s super competitive with lots of teams and drivers with tons more experience but we’re ready to take on the challenge.”'
