Christodoulou to partner with Bartone in Fanatec GT World Challenge America Pro-Am

Long Island, N.Y., (May 30, 2023) – Adam Christodoulou (Great Britain) will join Bartone Bros Racing with RealTime as a co-driver with Anthony Bartone (Miami, Fla.) for the team’s SRO Fanatec GT World Challenge America Powered by AWS Pro-Am remaining races starting at Virginia International Raceway (VIR), June 16-18.


Christodoulou is a stalwart Mercedes-AMG GT3 driver that is coming off a fourth-place finish at the Nürburgring 24h. The Brit has more than 200 races on his resume and has racked up a 97 percent finishing rate. He has three 24-hour race wins to his name, over 30 career victories and 88 podium finishes. When not behind the wheel he works as a racing instructor creating memories and providing tutelage to the next generation of sports car drivers.


“Adam will be a great addition to the team,” Andy Pilgrim, Bartone Bros Racing driver and team advisor, said. “We entered 2023 knowing it would be a dynamic year for Anthony. He was very comfortable in the Mercedes-AMG GT3 from our first test at Sebring back in January. After his performance at St. Pete, we immediately added us to the SRO Fanatec GT World Challenge America series, to get him more track time. He has done a superb job running in the Am class and now is a good time to step up to Pro Am; that’s where Adam Christodoulou comes in. I first met Adam back in 2017 while competing in the Nürburgring 24h and when his name came up as available, we jumped at the chance. The goal is to keep Anthony learning at the same pace, by continuing to hone his race craft at the highest levels of competition. The Pro-Am class is the perfect place to do just that.


“Adam is not only a fast driver who knows the Mercedes-AMG GT3 car, he’s also a great instructor who can communicate what the car is doing and what Anthony needs to do to keep progressing behind the wheel.”


Bartone has a race win to his credit this year at Sonoma Raceway in GT America and is excited to compete for podiums in the Fanatec GT World Challenge America Pro-Am category.


“My dad (Tony) and I rely on Andy to guide us in this sports car racing world,” Bartone said. “Andy has been there from my very first time on any racetrack, in a stick shift Corvette street car, back in Bowling Green, Ky. His patience, professionalism, and friendship has brought me a long way over the last two years and I’m ready for this next step and very excited to work with Adam at VIR.”


Christodoulou is excited to be back in America racing.


"This will be my Fanatec GT World Challenge America debut and I am really looking forward to it,” Christodoulou said. “I already know two of the circuits, VIR and Sebring, but Road America is actually a new track to me. I can’t wait to go around that place, I have heard some brilliant things about it, and it has been a track I have always wanted to go to. I'm looking forward to racing with Anthony and meeting everybody on the Bartone Bros Racing with RealTime team. It has been a while since I have raced in America, and I have definitely missed it. I have always loved racing in the U.S., and VIR, where we will get started, was always one of my favorites. I always felt like it was an old school circuit with not much room for error and high-speed twists."
