Zoro Racing competed on eight different renown circuits across North America which included the Formula 1-grade Circuit of the Americas facility and historic Road America in Wisconsin just north of the Zoro Tools Chicago-based headquarters. Pirelli World Challenge pilots Phil Fogg Jr. and Brett Sandberg combined to give Zoro Racing four podium results and 11 top-five finishes including a big victory through the streets of St. Petersburg, Florida.
VICTORY AT ST. PETE: The 2015 Pirelli World Challenge championship was highlighted by the team’s victory at St. Pete when Phil Fogg Jr. took the lead on the first lap and led all the way until the checkered flag.
PREVIOUSLY… AT SONOMA: The Zoro Racing team faced disappointment at Sonoma Raceway when an incident in qualifying saw the No. 18 Zoro car badly damaged. Phil Fogg Jr. emerged unscathed, but unfortunately the damage was enough that the team was forced to withdraw from both races. Regrettably, the car was unable to be repaired for the season-finale event and despite massive efforts, the team was not able to secure a replacement car in time for the event.
ZORO PRESENCE AT MAZDA RACEWAY LAGUNA SECA: Zoro Tools will have a strong marketing presence at the track throughout the weekend. The Zoro display will be set up in the paddock with various giveaways for fans in attendance.
ZORO RACING BY THE NUMBERS: In 2015, the No. 18 Zoro Racing Porsche claimed 1 win, 4 podiums, 11 top-five finishes, completed 354 laps and 1,014.6 miles.
PHIL FOGG JR., DRIVER: “Zoro has been an awesome partner to work with this year. They are very engaged with me and with the entire racing program. We were able to go back to their headquarters in Chicago earlier this year and meet their team, have lunch, and do a Q&A about racing which was pretty cool. I’m grateful they came on board and was proud to carry the Zoro livery on my car this year and deliver some solid results.”
THE PIRELLI WORLD CHALLENGE: Zoro Racing competes in the Pirelli World Challenge, one of North America’s top production car-based championships. Pirelli World Challenge events are a maximum of 50 minutes start to finish and feature standing starts.
