Over 100 cars on entry list for PWC season-opener at COTA
105 cars total are entered in the seven classes.
The provisional entry list for the season-opening Pirelli World Challenge event at COTA has been revealed. Between 15 GT, 15 GTA, 10 GTC, 20 GTS, 19 TC, 12 TCA, and 14 TCBs, there are a total of 103 cars. That number is still expected to grow before the green flag flies in Austin.
"Over the last number of years, we have worked diligently to execute a plan for overall series growth and I'm happy that we are reaching the goals set out in that plan," said Scott Bove, President and CEO, WC Vision/Pirelli World Challenge. "Having over 100 cars entered for our first race of the season is a testament to our hard work and we look forward to continuing that work to further grow the series."
"With 60 cars entered in the GT, GT Cup and GTS classes we are pleased to see the continued growth from 2014," noted Greg Gill, Vice President General Manager, WC Vision/Pirelli World Challenge.
"The recent growth in car counts is a combination of the manufacturers, PWC and our teams working much more closely together," said Pirelli World Challenge Competition Director, Marcus Haselgrove. "Coming out of our meetings at PRI (Performance Racing Industry show) with manufacturers and teams, we have over 30 new cars entered for 2015. I'm especially happy to see the results across the board in the Touring Car classes for 2015."
