Diligently working towards a dream career in motorsports, 28-year-old Tyler Cooke has begun his steps towards motorsports stardom. Cooke caught the racing bug early in life, as his grandfather had a late-model team where Cooke spent a lot of time both at the shop and at the track. After humble beginnings running a go-kart built by Cooke’s father in a local school parking lot, the Plantation, Florida native showed promise at the St. Lucie Dirt Go Kart track scoring two wins and a third place finish in his first season. Moving through a varietyof series, Cooke’s goal of competing in the GRAND-AM Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge Series full time was realized in 2012 when he signed with Freedom Autosport. After just one season, Cooke moved on to race for BimmerWorld Racing and continued to do so for 6 seasons where he collected multiple wins, podiums, pole positions and two championship trophies. In 2019, Cooke raced for eEuroparts.com ROWE racing as a driver of the #2 Audi R8 LMS GT4. In 2021 Cooke made his GT3 Debut with Leipert Motorsport and in 2022 Cooke joined the team in the SRO Fanatec GT World Challenge Europe Endurance Series.
In more recent years, Cooke has taken advantage of downtime during the IMSA schedule to race overseas in the 24 hours of Nurburgring. He hopes to continue his momentum in the European circuits over the upcoming years.
