New Braunfels, TX – Currently second in the GTS point standings, Ginetta Factory driver Parker Chase is ready to make his Canadian debut with Performance Motorsports Group this weekend in Pirelli World Challenge GTS Rounds 7 and 8 at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park in Bowmanville, Ontario.
Canadian Tire Motorsports Park (CTMP), otherwise known as Mosport, is one of the fastest and most challenging road courses in North America. Chase will average over 100 MPH in the No. 19 Alta Towers / Enertech Resources Ginetta G55 GT4 around the 10-turn 2.5 mile circuit as he battles to claim the GTS points lead. Chase has been able to reach the podium during every race weekend of the season and is ready to continue that streak.
“I’m really looking forward to racing at Mosport,” said Chase. “The Performance Motorsports Group team has given me a really fast and well-handling Ginetta at every event so far and I have full confidence that we will be fighting for another podium. We are in a good spot right now, second in the Championship and the goal is to build on that. I want to keep the car clean and finish on the podium. Thanks to Alta Towers, Enertech Resources and Performance Motorsports Group for allowing me to chase this championship.”
