Never one to shy away from a challenge, Steve Cameron, of Cameron Racing has entered an astonishing five entries in the Pirelli World Challenge Grand Prix of VIR, April 28-29, 2017. In total, there are four drivers in the highly competitive Touring Car (TC) Class, all armed with BMW 235iRs. Drivers Aristotle Balogh in the ART Racing car #19, Greg Liefooghe in the Prime X car #20, Rodrigo Sales in the Prime X car #8, and Henry Schmitt in the BMW of San Francisco car # 87 will compete on Virginia International Raceway’s 17-turn, 3.27-mile full road course during the first race of the 2017 season for the TC Class.
The fifth entry will be in the Grand Touring Sport (GTS) class featuring the extended Sprint X endurance format. Pulling double duty, Cameron Racing team driver, Greg Liefooghe will co-drive with Aristotle Balogh in the Sprint X-GTS race in their ART Racing #019 Aston Martin Vantage GT4, while Balogh will handle solo driving duties during the normal GTS rounds of the weekend.
Team Driver Greg Liefooghe will be looking to balance driving duties, challenging for the win in the TC and Sprint X-GTS classes while also serving a crucial role in helping to develop his fellow teammates, all rookies for this season.
“Greg is an integral part of our program, coaching our drivers, helping everyone get everything they can out of themselves, and maximize their opportunities throughout the race weekend,” Steve Cameron stated. “Greg and Aristotle already have a strong history together driving in other endurance series, so they should be able to contend at the front right out of the gate.”
“All of our guys have been preparing for this race all off-season. We can’t wait to get on track and see their hard work pays off.”
