Two Aston Martins to contend Pirelli World Challenge
TRG-Aston Martin Racing is heading North this weekend, towards the infamous Canadian Tire Motorsport Park and the next round of Pirelli World Challenge competition. This marks the only Pirelli World Challenge event in Canada this year, on a track well-known for its high-speed sections of long sweepers and tight, technical corners.
TRG-AMR Team Drivers Christina Nielsen and Max Riddle will be driving the team’s two Aston Martins this weekend, Christina continuing her full season GTA campaign and Riddle returning to the car for the first time this season. Christina will be piloting her No. 7 Royal Purple/ORION/LaSalle Solutions/PassTime USA Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3 alongside the 90+ other competitors entered this weekend across the multiple classes in Pirelli World Challenge, one of the largest car counts in the history of the growing series.
Team has had luck at venue
Canadian Tire Motorsports Park has played host to everything from motorcycles to Formula 1 and everything in between during the course of its 50+ year existence. This weekend should be full of great racing and exciting action for Nielsen along with the No. 07 Royal Purple/ORION/LaSalle Solutions/PassTime USA V8 Vantage GT4 of Max Riddle.
Max, a Canadian himself, has always loved coming to this circuit competing here a number of times over the years during his sportscar career. The flowing corners and high-speed sections favor the characteristics of the Aston Martin racecars, both having been developed on the circuits of Europe.
TRG has an impressive history here at Mosport with multiple wins and podiums throughout the years including a 1-2 finish in ALMS and Team Owner Kevin Buckler having won here in 2002, as well.
