OAKVILLE, ON, Jan. 25, 2017 /CNW/ - As one of the GTA's leading automotive retail groups, the Policaro Automotive Family will be bringing their leadership and passion to the track once more, this time under the newly minted flag of Policaro Motorsport.
Policaro Motorsport will take to the track alongside their proven partner Alegra Motorsports, entering into the four endurance races of the 2017 IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship at Daytona, Sebring, Watkins Glen and Atlanta. Taking the wheel for the team will be Daniel Morad, Jesse Lazare, Michael Christensen, and 17-year-old Michael de Quesada, who will also be wearing the team colours in the Platinum Class of the Ultra 94 Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Canada by Yokohama series.
Sports Cars Boutique's SCB Racing will also be fielding a Policaro Motorsport-sponsored vehicle: a BMW M235iR that will be entered in the 2017 Canadian Touring Car Championship in the ST Class. SCB Racing, now in its seventh season, will look to 22-year-old racer and former Formula 1600 and Formula 1600 Super Series National champion, Michael Adams, to lead the team in the #58 BMW.
Policaro Motorsport is also proud to be partnering once more with 6th Gear - together they will host seven track day experiences at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in 2017.
"Motorsport is a true passion of ours and our clients," says Francesco Policaro, of the Policaro Automotive Family. "We look forward to building upon our back-to-back championships and are excited to see our customers at our events throughout the season."
