Tomy Drissi Joins Performance Tech
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Former Trans-Am Series champion Tomy Drissi will bring his driving talents to Performance Tech Motorsports in 2014, driving the No. 38 Prototype Challenge car.
Drissi will make his debut with the team at the inaugural IMSA TUDOR Championship 52nd Rolex 24 at Daytona, Jan. 25-26, at Daytona Int’l Speedway.
“I’m really looking forward to running with Performance Tech and participating in the 2014 Tequila Patrón North American Endurance Cup,” said Drissi. “These guys run a great program, and I’m thrilled to be in the car.
“I’m starting off at Daytona running in the Rolex 24, filling in for Charlie Shears,” continued Drissi. “He is on the mend and getting ready for Sebring. So, for me, this is a perfect way to kick off the year. I can’t wait. I’ll continue with the team as the third driver in the Tequila Patrón North American Endurance Cup. I owe a big thanks to him and the team for putting this all together.”
“The idea of incorporating four epic endurance races into the Tequila Patrón North American Endurance Cup, especially on such legendary road courses, is nothing short of brilliant,” said Drissi. “It’s exactly what the sport needs and will really showcase sports cars and sports car endurance racing. Ed Brown and his group have really gone the extra mile in making this happen. Patrón putting their name and stamp on this championship within a championship lends an incredible amount of credibility and prestige to the title.”
