Costa Mesa, CA – TruSpeed Autosport announced today a new sponsorship with Zoro, an industrial supply distribution company geared toward small businesses and individuals, to become the title sponsor for one of the team’s Pirelli World Challenge entries.
“We are very excited about our new relationship with TruSpeed Autosport and the upcoming World Challenge season,” said Shanon Strahl, with Zoro. “This is an opportunity to continue to build our brand awareness with those who follow and participate in motorsports. We look forward to cheering on the Zoro car.”
Phil Fogg Jr. will drive the No. 18 Zoro Racing Porsche for TruSpeed, the California-based Porsche race squad. Fogg started his racing career in the open-wheel ranks before moving to the Porsche 911 platform. The race veteran is a familiar face to TruSpeed Autosport fans, as Fogg has an extensive history of competition with the team.
“We are excited to partner with Zoro, sign Phil to race the car and to return to the World Challenge to fight for this new GT Cup championship,” said Tyler Tadevic, TruSpeed Autosport team owner. “The sponsorship with Zoro is an ideal match and one that we look forward to both on and off the track. We just can’t wait to get going.”
In 2011, the TruSpeed team won the World Challenge Team and Driver championships. This year, it’s targeting the GT Cup presented by MOMO championship.
“Having Zoro come on board to partner with TruSpeed, and having the chance to race in the first year of this new GT Cup class is a fantastic opportunity for me,” said Fogg. “Tyler and the TruSpeed team really know their stuff when it comes to preparing the Porsche Cup cars and I’m excited about the season.”
The 2015 Pirelli World Challenge calendar opens with Rounds 1 and 2 at Circuit of the Americas on March 7-8.
