The Racers Group heads to Canadian Tire Motorsport Park

The Racers Group heads to Canadian Tire Motorsport Park this weekend for the next rounds of fierce competition in the Pirelli World Challenge SprintX and GTS championship. The team will be looking to capitalize on their strong outing two weeks ago at VIRginia International Raceway, where drivers Drew Regitz and Kris Wilson drove to a win and a second-place finish, and are currently on top of the SprintX Am/Am standings.

At a track known for speed and its incident-filled races, Mosport will truly test the team, drivers and the powerful, elegant Aston Martin Vantage and Porsche Cayman race cars to the max for the duration of all three events over the high-speed 10-turn, 2.458 mile course.

TRG’s reputation for success at the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park hit a high point again last year as the team’s four drivers, including Kris Wilson, took home several champagne-soaked trophies, including a win, two 1-2 finishes and a 3rd place podium during the Pirelli World Challenge race weekend. This continued an historic string of success for TRG at this track, including a GTC podium in 2013, a win in 2012, a 1-2 finish in 2011. The team has an incredible history here and team owner, Kevin Buckler himself won in IMSA GT in 2002 beating the factory Porsche team in an amazing upset victory and what was the beginning of a fantastic multi-year run for Buckler as a driver and team owner.

Kevin Buckler’s team brings an outstanding and experienced line-up of five drivers competing in GTS and SprintX this weekend. In GTS Class Craig Lyons will be in the No.03 Porsche Cayman GTS, in SprintX - GTA Class Drew Regitz and Kris Wilson will be in the 007 Aston Martin V12 Vantage, Jerry Kaufman and Kyle Tilley will be in the SprintX - GTS Class, 09 Aston Martin V8 Vantage.
