Chatanooga-based Porsche Carrera Cup North America squad ACI Motorsport enters the 2024 season with a hugely expanded seven-car line-up across the Pro, Pro-Am, and Masters classes.

Former Porsche Sprint Challenge North America by Yokohama champion Jimmy Llibre leads the ACI assault in the Pro class, moving to ACI for his second season in the Carrera Cup.

The Dominican Republic racer finished eighth in the points last season but performed strongly at the pre-season test, finishing fifth fastest overall and was second quickest in two of the five sessions.

Canadian racer Marco Cirone returns to ACI in 2024, looking to go one better after finishing second in the Pro-am class last season. He will be joined this year by Pedro Torres, who returns to Carrera Cup after racing in Fanatec GT World Challenge last year for ACI. Torres previously contested the Carrera Cup championship in 2022.

The duo will be joined by Canadian racer Roberto Tutino, who is making his Carrera Cup debut this year.

ACI will also enter three cars in the Masters class, with Matt Halcome returning with his popular “Mystery Machine” livery. Halcome impressed at the pre-season test by going fastest in the class.

Richard Edge moves across from ACI’s SRO GT4 America program to return to Carrera Cup. He previously competed in Carrera Cup in 2022 with ACI.

Tom Balames completes the 2024 line-up – bringing his multi-colored stripe livery across to the ACi squad.

“We’re looking forward to finally getting the 2024 season underway. You never know what to expect, but it looks promising for our team,” said Team Principal Curt Swearingin.

“We’ve grown so much and so quickly, but we’ve never been more ready to hit the track and compete for championships.”

“Our goals are the same as ever – perform to our maximum potential and give every driver the best platform and chance to succeed. We’re looking forward to pushing the limits and seeing the ceiling of what we can accomplish.”

In addition to the team’s Carrera Cup program, ACI will again compete in GT4 America, with Swearingin teaming up with Kay van Berlo, a 13-time Carrera Cup race winner.
