In a bid to continue their success in the Pirelli World Challenge series, TRG will open the season with their Aston Martin program in St. Petersburg, Fla. with an old name but a new twist. The team will be reunited with Aussie standout and former TRG professional driver James Davison behind the wheel of the LaSalle Solutions 007 V12 Vantage competing for the overall win in the GT Class. This will be the season opener for Pirelli World Challenge and for TRG; after finishing on a high note winning the 2016 Team and Drivers’ Sprint-X GTS Championship with their Aston Martin V8 Vantage team and their Team Driver Max Riddle.
Davison, the Australian pro driver who delivered a remarkable 5 pole positions in a row in 2014/2015 in the GT3 is once again reunited with the team and the fierce V12 Vantage GT3 he drove so well. St. Petersburg’s beautiful oceanfront track boasts 14 turns winding along the sunny streets of the Florida shoreline. A peaceful atmosphere of fans sipping champagne on yachts moored between swaying harborside palm trees is broken by the roar of powerful sports cars barreling down the streets at over 160mph. Davison’s ruthless racecraft and keen familiarity with this track earned him 2nd place in the 2016 PWC race. This year, he’ll race the 007 LaSalle Solutions Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3 during this festival of motorsports shared with IndyCar and other fan-favorite race series.
“I am excited to be rejoining TRG and the Aston Martin brand after much success together the past 3 years. The Vantage GT3 promises to be strong on the St. Petersburg streets and we look to go one spot better than my 2nd place finish last year,” said Davison. “It will be an exciting weekend for the team and all of its partners and sponsors. ”
