Home / About Us


AO Racing was formed in 2022 by PJ Hyett and Gunnar Jeannette with a vision of winning at the top level of motorsports.  Hyett is a passionate collector and scholar of the sports history, and Jeannette’s own motorsport resume is long and illustrious. We are professional organization but aim to bring the fun back into motorsport, eager to win the hearts of race fans, young and old. 

In our first season of full-time professional racing, we competed in the 2023 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship’s GTD class with Rexy, the No. 80 Tyrannosaurus Rex Porsche 911 GT3 Rawr. In the FIA World Endurance Championship, we partnered with Project 1, running a full season and bringing Rexy to the iconic 24  Hours of Le Mans. 

Our season will begin with a joint effort with Proton Competition in the Asian Le Mans Series, running the  No. 55 LMP2 Oreca. 

In our sophomore year of racing in IMSA WeatherTech, we are proud to race Rexy, the No. 77 Porsche 911 GT3 R in the GTD PRO class, joined by Spike, the No. 99 Oreca Dragon in the LMP2 class. 

This season will also see the entry of the ORLEN Team AO by TF No. 14 Oreca 07 Gibson in the European Le Mans Series, driven by Robert Kubica, Louis Delétraz, and Jonny Edgar.
