The roles match those which both have held in the Repco Supercars Championship for multiple years now.
SRO Motorsports Australia CEO Ben McMellan said, “We are thrilled to be able to have acquired the services of both James and Craig for the 2024 Fanatec GT World Challenge and Monochrome GT4 Australia 2024 seasons.
“It's a real coup to have individuals of this calibre involved in both categories and I have no doubt their experience and knowledge will enhance the stature of the series – especially as the categories enter new phases.
“Preparations for the 2024 season are ticking along nicely, so to have these positions now locked in is fantastic for us and we're getting very excited to get next year underway.”
Next year will be the first for GT World Challenge Australia under sole SRO control, while Monochrome GT4 Australia is standalone for the first time, run as a partnership of SRO and the team behind Australian Production Cars, with which it had shared a grid this year.
