Method Motorsport confirm driver line-ups for inaugural Monochrome GT4 Australia round

The road to Phillip Island has started for Method Motorsport who is proud to announce that they have locked in some very talented drivers for the 2024 Monochrome GT4 Australia Series.

After their outstanding performances at this year's Bathurst 12 Hour, Tom Hayman and Marcos Flack are teaming up together as both are keen to get back behind the wheel of the McLaren Artura GT4 at next weekend’s opening round at Phillip Island.

Both drivers celebrated a podium finish in the GT4 category of the iconic endurance race in February after several impressive stints at Mount Panorama. The dynamic duo with contest in a full silver car over six rounds of the championship and will certainly be amongst the action.

“I’m very excited to be able to have this amazing opportunity to compete in the 2024 GT4 championship with Method Motorsport," said Hayman.

"Also, the opportunity to be teaming up with Marcos flack is surreal. I competed with the team in their debut at the Bathurst 12 hour this year and I loved every second of it. I can’t wait to be able to hit the track this year and continue to build with the team and learn as much as I can, it’s going to be a very exciting year for all involved."

"After the Bathurst 12 Hour, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to get back behind the wheel of the McLaren Artura GT4 with Method Motorsport," said Flack.

"It was an opportunity I simply couldn't pass up. I am looking forward to working with Chaz again, his wealth of knowledge and experience is invaluable, and I'm eager to soak up everything he has to offer.

"Having someone I've admired for so long in my corner, guiding me to push my limits, is incredibly motivating and exciting.

"Driving alongside Tom Hayman is going to be a blast. He showed his speed and skill in the other car during the 12-hour race. He was fast in the car at the start of the year and a great guy, so being able to drive alongside him only adds to the experience.

"The whole team at Method is just a great bunch of people and I loved working with them at the 12 hour and I look forward to the pleasure of doing it for the whole year.”

“It's amazing to be announcing a full silver car in the Monochrome GT4 Australia Championship. As proven at the Bathurst 12 Hour everyone in our cars did a fantastic job and all were blinding quick by the end of the weekend," said Team Co-Owner Chaz Mostert.

"It's incredible to see a program come together for Tom Hayman and Marcos flack and this is only possible with amazing partners involved so I just want to say a huge thanks to JGI, WM Waste, Di Prinzio Concreting, Polaris Marine Group and Freight Assist Australia.

"We wouldn't be on the grid without the support so thank you for coming on board, I can’t wait to see what we can all achieve this year. It's going to be an exciting Round 1 with Method Motorsport supporting Shane Smollen Motorsport in Pro Am and Method Motorsport’s McLaren Artura GT4 in silver, we will be aiming for top honours
in both.”

The second McLaren is going to be piloted by one of the team's other Bathurst driver, Jesse Bryan who is teaming up with experienced driver Nathan Morcom.

“I’m stoked to be teaming up with Method Motorsport not only to be getting behind the wheel of the new McLaren GT4 Artura but also to be teaming up with a good mate of mine in Chaz but this time instead of co-drivers he is the team boss," Morcom revealed.

"In the past we have done heaps of racing together and the best memory was winning the inaugural Bathurst 6 Hour in 2016. Brand new team this year which is exciting for myself and also Chaz to grow his passion for motorsport but with the McLaren GT4 Artura.

"Yes, it will be a new car for myself but I am familiar with the McLaren brand as I have previously raced the McLaren GT3 650s back in 2016, which brought great success throughout that year winning the endurance championship with Grant Denyer and also runner up in the sprint series.

"McLaren build absolute beautiful machinery so I’m chomping at the bit to jump behind the wheel and see what this new model is made of. Can’t wait for round one to come as Phillip Island is an amazing track for GT cars with the long sweeping corners and straights.

"Exciting for the times ahead and to be partnering up with Chaz.”

“I’m stoked to be joining the Method Motorsport team again in the #24 McLaren GT4 Artura," said Bryan. "Off the back of the Bathurst 12 hour going back to not only the team but a newly found family in a state of the art race car I am ecstatic. Chaz, Guy, Aaron and Amy have formed a team with nothing but the upmost professional outfit.

"Joining Nathan Morcom for the start of the Monochrome GT4 seaon opener at Phillip Island I’m sure will be a strong start to the year and hope to bring home another result for the team.”

The opening round of Monochrome GT4 Australia is at Phillip Island on April 12-14 as part of the Shannons SpeedSeries to be broadcast live on 7mate and 7plus.
