TRG set to return to TUDOR United Sportscar Championship in 2015

Thursday, November 06, 2014

TRG-AMR North America announced today that rising European GT racing star Christina Nielsen has joined the team for the entire 2015 TUDOR United Sportscar Championship and Tequila Patrón North American Endurance Cup seasons. Co-Driving with Nielsen is 2014 TRG-AMR driver, James Davison. 
Davison finished off the season with four consecutive TUDOR Championship poles (Road America, VIR, COTA, and Petit Le Mans) and a Continental Tire Sportscar Challenge win (Kansas) under his belt, as well as racing in the iconic Indy 500.
For the Patrón Endurance Cup races other select drivers will be chosen after further testing and evaluation by the team competition department and engineers. The Petaluma-based squad is working on plans for running a multi-car IMSA GTD program in 2015, with heavy emphasis on the Patrón Endurance Cup and the possibility of a return trip to Le Mans.
The duo of Nielsen and Davison will begin winter season testing immediately, starting with a full three-day shakedown at Sebring International Raceway Nov. 21-23. This is one of the last major testing opportunities in the offseason and the team will be evaluating qualified drivers for the upcoming endurance races. While other testing opportunities will be available at Sonoma, this will be the last major testing event prior to the Roar Before the 24 in early January at Daytona.
