Orlando, FL – Tom Noble returns to the Pirelli World Challenge Series for his second consecutive season joining Shea Racing in the Touring Car B-Spec category driving the No. 48 West Real Estate/BIR Performance Driving School Mini Cooper entry.
“Pirelli World Challenge has always been the place for us to showcase our racing and partnership efforts. Needless to say, we are very excited to have Tom Noble join us as we look forward to providing him a platform of success while further making an impression in the class and series,” Shea Holbrook, co-owner of Shea Racing said.
Noble talks about the 2014 season, “Last year was a stepping stone getting the professional competition seat time needed to in turn achieve solid performances for this year. I’m thrilled to be joining the multi-faceted Shea Racing team. Not only do they provide well-prepped professional services but the team is a joy to be around and they offer a competitive edge from a marketing prospective. Just a few of the reasons they were an easy chose for me. Together, we look forward to successful season.”
Gary Curtis, owner and lead instructor at Brainerd International Raceway (BIR) Performance Driving School has mentored Noble into professional racing.
“I couldn’t be happier for my friend and BIR instructor, Tom Noble. Last year PWC raced at our facility and we got to see firsthand Tom’s hard work and even handwork that BIR Performance Driving School once taught him. We’ll be supporting Tom and Shea Racing throughout the course of the season,” said Curtis.
The season-opener kicks off March 6-8th at Circuit of the Americas for the series. Continue to follow the team at www.SheaRacing.com.
