Flying Lizard Motorsports Turns Up the Volume for Music City Grand Prix

NASHVILLE, Tenn., (August 1, 2023) — This weekend, the resonating roar of race cars will echo off the avenues of downtown Nashville as the Music City Grand Prix returns for another exciting three days of motorsport activities. The No. 460 Porsche 911 GT3R and the No. 2 Aston Martin Vantage will be the two Lizard vehicles competing against 20 other entrants in the GT America Powered by AWS doubleheader.
“We are excited to be coming to Nashville for the first time,” said Program Manager Darren Law. “As always street courses are tricky and take a lot of discipline. You need to be precise with everything you do on track as there is no room for error. We have a good baseline for the starting setups, so we hope that helps with such limited time in practice. This event is critical for our points as we are at the top of the team points and close in the driver points in GT4, so a key factor for us is to minimize risk and not take any unnecessary risk.”

In the GT America GT4 class championship point standings, Flying Lizard Motorsports holds a 28-point lead over Chouest Povoledo Racing, while Jason Bell sits second in the GT4 driver standings, just nine points behind Ross Chouest. Bell competed in last year’s event, finishing fifth and third in the Nashville doubleheader. This will be a new event for Flying Lizard veteran Andy Wilzoch, as he competes in the second street course of his career.

Running in support of the NTT IndyCar Series, GT America will be one of five series competing on the temporary course on the streets of downtown Nashville. Due to sharing the circuit with IndyCar and the affiliated series on a temporary circuit, each supporting group will have minimal track time, with GT America only receiving one hour of practice before Saturday’s 20-minute qualifying session. The Bronze-only series will hold the pair of 40-minute races, beginning with race one on Saturday, August 5 at 7:05 PM CT, followed by race two on Sunday, August 6 at 3:35 PM CT.

With a track length of 2.17 miles, the 11-turn circuit runs adjacent to Nissan Stadium, home to NFL team the Tennessee Titans. The track runs over 553 yards of bridge, running across the Korean War Veterans Memorial Bridge in and out of downtown. Drawing over 100,000 fans, the event has become one of the must-attend events of the summer in Nashville. For tickets and information, visit
