Tower Motorsports Partners With Doran
TORONTO – Tower Motorsports and drivers John Farano and David Empringham will team up with Doran Racing to run the TOWER EVENTS Nissan 370Z for the full season in the Grand Sport (GS) class of the 2014 IMSA Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge.
Farano and Empringham co-drove to the Continental Tire Challenge GS drivers’ championship in 2012.
The Pro/Am pairing of Farano and Empringham is sure to be amongst the series front runners at every event. After capturing the GS class title in 2012, Farano had a strong 2013 season competing in the Ferrari Challenge series with victories at Daytona, Interlagos (Brazil) and Sonoma, finishing second overall in the championship.
“The Continental Tire Challenge is such a fantastic series,” said Empringham. “It’s super competitive and so much fun. I’m really looking forward to driving the Nissan 370Z and working with the entire Tower Motorsports/Doran Racing team. I truly feel we have all the pieces in place to fight for the 2014 championship.”
Empringham also won the GS drivers’ championship in the 2005 Continental Tire Challenge, and played a central role in Doncaster Racing’s GSI championship in the 2002 series. In addition to taking the first-ever Daytona Prototype victory at the 2003 Rolex 24 At Daytona alongside Scott Maxwell and David Brabham, Empringham owns two Formula Atlantic titles and one Indy Lights title.
The Tower Motorsports/Doran Racing Team is looking forward to getting started at the Roar Before the 24, Jan. 3-5, 2014, at Daytona Int’l Speedway.
