Langley, BC – Renowned Canadian VW tuner, HPA Motorsports Inc., is set to campaign two VW Jetta GLI’s in 2015 in Pirelli World Challenge’s TC class.
After having found success in the 2012 Touring Car championship with two track records, four pole positions and four podium finishes including two wins, the HPA team took a two-year hiatus from racing to facilitate the relocation of their corporate headquarters and to focus on their ongoing product development projects.
With all new livery being developed for the two-car team by Andy Blackmore Designs, the HPA Jettas are poised to reenter the series with a fresh new design in which to showcase Volkswagen’s robust DSG Direct Shift Gearbox and durable 2.0T powerplant.
Having secured 2013 Dominican Touring Car Champion and 2007 PWC Touring Car Champion driver Jeff Altenburg to pilot car No. 15, HPA is seeking to put its proven turbocharged Jetta on the podium throughout the season giving Altenburg a reliable and competitive vehicle capable of winning another Driver Championship. “I’ve known Marcel for three years now and I have complete confidence in his abilities across the spectrum to give me the best Touring Car on the grid with HPA’s VW Jetta GLI. I’m getting to know the team as well and look forward to going into battle with them in just a few weeks at Austin. I’m also looking forward to working with the driver we bring on board as my team mate.”
HPA’s Crew Chief, Marcel Horn, is currently interviewing candidates for a funded second driver to put behind the wheel of Car No. 16 in efforts to build a cohesive team for the season.
HPA Motorsports Inc. is known as one of the world’s premier VR6 tuners with 24 years of experience building high performance AWD turbocharged VW’s and Audi’s. HPA has applied their longstanding expertise in forced induction technology to create innovative performance products for the current generation of 2.0T equipped vehicles.
