“Wow. The race car looks awesome and we are just stoked with the whole operation,” he said.

“We’ve got a competitive driver in Jonny Reid, the Giltrap Group is on board as well which is fantastic, plus the infrastructure and experience of Andy McElrea Racing.

“All the ingredients are there for a competitive year.  We’ll be pumping Simjen Racing and the Porsche Carrera Cup with our extensive resources. We’re excited and right behind our team and the category big time.”
