Erin Vogel

Yorba Linda, California

After getting her start in local grassroots racing, Erin Vogel’s motorsports career took off in 2018 when she helped create an all-female entry into the 24 Hours of Thunderhill. A class win (and fourth overall) convinced Vogel to take a shot at professional racing. She honed her skills in the Porsche Trophy West GT4 Championship, scoring 15 wins and the Bronze Class Championship. She moved to the SRO GT4 America SprintX Championship in 2020, where she first partnered with Michael Cooper. The duo had a successful season with multiple top-five finishes. In 2021, they took their first win at VIRginina International Raceway and Vogel became the first woman to win in the Pro-Am category, globally, in any GT World Challenge championship.

Michael Cooper

New York, NY

Following a successful run in the Skip Barber Racing School, Michael Cooper made the step to professional racing in 2010 when he joined the Mazda MX-5 Cup series. Cooper won the championship in his second year and followed it up with a repeat performance in the World Challenge Touring Car Championship, earning the title in his debut season. He then transitioned into the GT categories and became the GTS Champion in 2015. Moving to GT3, while a member of the Cadillac Racing factory team, Michael finished 2016 as the highest-placed rookie and won the 2017 SprintX Championship in GT3. Michael earned his fourth World Challenge title in 2020, collecting top honors in the GT4 America Sprint-Pro Championship. This will be his third season paired with Erin Vogel in GT World Challenge America. Cooper has already started 2022 with a big win, claiming LMP3 class honors at the famous Rolex 24 at Daytona.
