Park Place Motorsports returns to its Californian roots for Round 5 of SRO Pirelli GT4 America Sprint action with the No. 7 VOLT Lighting Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport MR of driver and sponsor Alan Brynjolfsson at Sonoma Raceway.
The now Dallas based Park Place Motorsports returns to its state of origin, California for two Pirelli GT4 America Sprint races. SRO brings the Sprint, SprintX and SprintX WEST series, making Park Place Motorsports a one-car effort for the weekend. Brynjolfsson enters GT4 America Sprint at Sonoma Raceway after taking home a third-place finish at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in Race Two of both Sprint and GT4 America SprintX EAST competition. This is his and the team’s first weekend running a single car effort since running at the Long Beach Grand Prix in April.
Brynjolfsson sits second in the Sprint Driver Points Championship standings, only 12 points behind the current leader and seven ahead of third place. This comes after Jarett Andretti was promoted from the Am division to the Pro Division in the GT4 Sprint series. Porsche currently leads the manufacturer title in the Pirelli GT4 America Manufacturer Championship by two points.

Mike Johnson, Park Place Motorsports Director of Race Operations
“We are all looking forward to Sonoma since its feels like we have not raced there in years,” Johnson said. “It will be another brand-new track for Alan which makes it fun as well. This will be our last SRO race until the end of August so it would be great to have some solid results.”
Patrick Lindsey, Park Place Motorsports Team Principal
“Alan has had some great races and he’s showed progress in his capabilities,” Lindsey said. “For him to be running second in the championship is really a testament to his talent. The team has also done a great job this year with their performance. They’ve handled a few tough situations that were just out of everyone’s control. Sonoma is a great raceway in a beautiful part of the country which makes it really enjoyable to race there. Hopefully, we can get Alan another podium finish so he can enjoy Sonoma even more.”
