Taylor Hagler joins W&S Motorsport in the 2023 GT4 European Series
W&S Motorsport is pleased to announce the addition of Taylor Hagler to its GT4 European Series line-up. The US-American will contest the races at Paul Ricard, Spa-Francorchamps and Misano alongside Gustavo Xavier in the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport #442. Hagler is replacing Briton Charles Dawson, who continues to recover from his accident at the season opener in Monza.
At the age of 27, Taylor Hagler can already look back on a very successful motorsport career and, after many years in the USA, is looking to expand her stakes in Europe. She has won the TCR class Drivers Championship in the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge twice in a row over the past two years and finished as the second best GT3 Pro-Am driver in the SRO GT World Challenge America in 2021.
With W&S Motorsport, the Texan is taking the next step to gain more racing experience in Europe and prepare for more competitions in Europe.
Daniel Schellhaas, Team Principal W&S Motorsport: “We are very happy to welcome Taylor to the team and are sure that we will achieve strong results together. Thanks to her experience, she ideally complements our line-up and I am looking forward to racing with her. At the same time, we wish Charles a continued good recovery and look forward to him returning to the cockpit in the second half of the season!”
Taylor Hagler, Driver #442: “I am looking forward to joining W&S Motorsport for the next rounds of the GT4 European Series. This year has been my first experience racing in Europe, and it’s great to be able to add some more great events and tracks to the calendar. The team has a lot of experience with Porsche cars and we will be working to quickly get up to speed in Paul Ricard.”
