    December 23, 2020 (Gloucester, VA) – Former Mazda MX-5 Champion driver Bryan Ortiz has signed on with Precision Performance Motorsports (PPM) for the upcoming 2021 Lamborghini Super Trofeo season to co-drive with former series World Champion Brandon Gdovic. As PPM gears up for another assault on the series, the excitement is building as the team feels this is a pairing that will be consistently fighting at the front end of the field.

    Ortiz, who hails from Puerto Rico, states: “I am more than happy to be able to have this opportunity with Precision Performance Motorsports to go for the championship together with Brandon.  I have known the Gdovic’s since the time when I drove in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series, the team was always professional and putting great cars on track. Brandon was a great competitor on and off the racetrack.  I would like to thank all the partners that have supported my racing career, PPM for their trust and P1 Groupe for their help in getting this deal put together. I’m excited to get behind the wheel of the Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo EVO and contend for wins and the championship with Brandon.”

    2015 Super Trofeo World Champion Brandon Gdovic is equally looking forward to the upcoming season; “I’m excited to have Bryan join the PPM team, and to be co-driving with me for the 2021 season.  Seven years ago, we were competitors in the NASCAR K&N series and now all this time later will get to drive together instead of against each other.  It will be a fun year and I can’t wait to start working with Bryan soon!”

    The team is currently negotiating with additional drivers for the 2021 season, anyone interested in joining Precision Performance Motorsports for the upcoming season should reach out soon as the team will kick-off the new year with testing in pre-season January.  Stay tuned for more announcements for the upcoming 2021 Lamborghini Super Trofeo season!

    On September 25, 2020 • By

    P1 Groupe is proud to announce a new strategic partnership with Racers360 to provide a trial coaching package with each racecar sold via P1 Corsa; which is P1 Groupe’s race asset sales arm.  This program will allow new racecar buyers the unique opportunity to receive personalized coaching from some of the biggest names in the sport today.  P1 will provide a 3-session trial package at no additional cost to those purchasing racecars.  So often a buyer is stepping up to a larger or faster racecar, or new to the sport, and with the coaching Racers360 provides will limit the learning curve for those car buyers.

    “At P1, we’re always looking for ways to improve the racing and purchasing experience for our clientele.” P1 Groupe President Eric Burch continues; “With the proper training at their disposal, not only will the driver be up to speed faster, providing more enjoyment of their new asset, but they’ll do so in a much safer manner. P1 has had a relationship with Racer360’s Founder, Dion von Moltke for more than a decade and couldn’t be happier than to continue that forward.”

    Dion von Moltke, President and Co-Founder of Racers360 states; “At Racers360 we know deeply how important it is for a driver to find the right car for them. However, getting good advice, and then searching for and buying or selling cars that you know are quality is something that has historically been very difficult in this sport. That is why we are so excited to partner up with the team at P1 Corsa to help drivers sell their cars and find their next racecar.  To be able to structure this partnership in such a unique way so that when you purchase your new racecar you will get Races360 personalized coaching sessions included in that purchase to help you learn, and get the most out of your new car is just so cool!”

    Another aspect that is unique to this partnership is that P1 and Racers360 do not target just one discipline within the sport. Whether you are looking for your next GT, Prototype, Open Wheel, or even stock car, both P1 and Racers360 has you covered!

    “I couldn’t be happier than to partner with a brand like Doering to launch this exciting new program.” Eric Burch, President of P1 Groupe, Inc. continues; “This package will allow P1 a greater opportunity to provide the high level of service our clientele have come to expect, but on a much more personal level with their new or used exotic road car.  Coming from a motor sports background gives us a unique perspective and reach to ensure that our clients receive the next level of service available.”

    Adam Berger, President of Doering Fleet Managements states; “We are thrilled to premiere DreamLease by Doering with a strong partnership with P1 Groupe’s luxury, exotic, and racing heritage.  Doering’s was founded in 1989, serving businesses and individuals across the United States who desire the best – service, experience, and lease products.  Doering has leased luxury and exotic vehicles for years.  DreamLease was born from our corporate DNA with the goal of focusing on highline and exotic vehicle leasing – new and used.”

    Most people believe you can’t lease used vehicles, but we can.  Most also believe you can’t lease under your own terms, our programs are designed around your needs, not ours.  DreamLease writes leases from 12-72 months under a variety of lease structures. Eric Burch and the DreamLease team work seamlessly together to provide used exotic and luxury vehicle leasing services.

    January 20, 2020 (Thomasville, NC) – Following Rick Ware Racings dominant 1-2 finish in the LMP2-AM category of the latest round of the 2019-2020 Asian Le Mans Series at The Bend, RWR now leads the points championship in category. The championship is extremely important to RWR’s expansion goals for 2020 as the winner of the Asian Le Mans Series LMP2-AM Championship receives the coveted automatic invite to the 2020 24 hours of Le Mans.

    With regret, and due in large part to circumstances outside the teams control regarding driver combination and the funding required to be competitive at the top of the class, RWR is withdrawing from this weeks Rolex 24 hours of Daytona. The team is not willing to compromise the overall season goals to show up with any intention other than to be prepared to come out on top.

    As evidenced by our program in Asia, RWR intends to arrive armed with the tools necessary to win. The right combination of drivers, crew and of course funding are needed to compete at the LMP2 level. With a fully freshened LMP2 prototype at the ready, the team will now focus all of its resources on Asian championship and getting the LMP2 ready for Le Mans, should that opportunity arise.

    In addition to a full slate on the sportscar front, Rick Ware Racing is preparing four cars to run in the upcoming Daytona 500 in the NASCAR Cup Series, with three of those four running for the full season.

    All is not lost on the IMSA front as major news is coming that will see a full time entry in the WeatherTech championship post Daytona to be announced in the coming weeks. This would be in addition to the full season Lamborghini Super Trofeo season after the team took delivery of its Lamborghini Huracan EVO this past week, and will begin the testing program for the 2020 season in short order.

    On August 9, 2019 • By

    For immediate Release
    August 9, 2019 (Thomasville, NC) – Rick Ware Racing is excited to announce expansion into the sportscar racing world with a full time prototype effort that will debut in the Asian Le Mans Series (ALMS) at the 4 hours of Shanghai on November 22-24, 2019.  RWR will campaign two Ligier JSP2 prototypes in the P2-AM category for the full four-race championship in an effort to secure the coveted 24 hour of Le Mans entry.  Additionally, RWR will also campaign a P2 prototype in the 2020 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.

    Rick Ware has worked tirelessly to build a program his team, drivers and sponsors alike can be proud of, and this expansion will only continue those efforts.  “As RWR prepares for its 30th year in motorsports in 2020, I look forward to expanding and growing the brand and the business model. RWR has had success in the past at the Daytona 24 and IMSA with GT cars as well as Lamborghini Super Trofeo.” Ware continues; “As our sponsors crave even more social media and content, as well as hospitality, the road racing has become very justifiable. We are excited to transition many of our NASCAR Monster Energy Cup sponsors, as well as cultivate new ones. Between the two I feel like RWR is covering the complete spectrum of demographics and potential sponsor needs. We have run many drivers from overseas in the past, but with the interest of the Asian Le Mans Series I believe it will be the catalyst for continuing our open door policy for drivers and sponsors to also be part of the NASCAR model. One of my personal dreams has always been to get to Le Mans, and the ALMS is the first step. It will also help in the learning curve as we prepare for IMSA and the LMP2 series here in the States. RWR will be building content and entertaining sponsors in over 100 races between NASCAR CUP, XFINITY, IMSA LMP2 and ALMS in 2020.”

    Ware is equally as excited about the championship winning personnel he’s secured within the program. “I am excited to have Antonio Ferrari head up my program for 2019-2020 in Asia as well as Le Mans. 30 plus years of road racing experience in the US, Europe as well as the INDY 500. As we grow the brand we need people like Antonio who are hard core racers and has had so much success.” Rick adds “we have brought in Eric Burch (from P1) full time to head up management for RWR world-wide. With Eric’s experience at every major venue around the globe, he is important in helping secure drivers, logistics and working with sponsors and our marketing on the NASCAR side.  In addition to the right caliber of staff, I wanted to roll out our first season with the right inventory of equipment, and Jacques Nicolet from Ligier Automotive has been great to work with from the start. The long standing relationship with he and Antonio makes it even better. RWR is excited to grow our clientele base and continue to be a value for companies in the US and now beyond…. now if we could just get 8 days in a week!”

    Newly hired General Manager of RWR world-wide operations, Eric Burch; who also owns and operates P1 Groupe, Inc., a motorsports company that has produced championship combinations for its team and driver clients all over the globe, had to hit the ground running.  Burch immediately tabbed Antonio Ferrari for the role of Team Manager, and secured the agreement with Ligier to obtain the 2018 and 2017 ALMS Championship Winning cars for its maiden season. “I appreciate Ricks trust in my abilities to run a championship caliber program.  I’ll be pulling double duty as I’ll also be running P1 Groupe, but understand my ability to secure the right driving lineup that can win the championship for RWR and get to Le Mans and beyond is of the highest priority,” commented Burch. “We collectively believe this is the start of something great for RWR, for drivers to have the ability to cross over between disciplines and for sponsors to easily expand their reach globally.”

    Ferrari has a 30-year history in the sport that consists of 810 races, 228 wins, 214 poles, 15 Team Titles and 21 Drivers Championships won.  “The entire Eurointernational Team is excited to begin a global partnership with RWR. The association with a NASCAR Monster Energy Cup brings new and important programs going forward. ” said Antonio Ferrari , CEO of Eurointernational Group “Thank you to Rick Ware Racing, P1 Groupe and Ligier Automotive for the opportunity to take on the challenge in winning the ALMS P2 AM category and getting to Le Mans in 2020”.

    Team driver Cody Ware will be a fixture within this program, and cannot wait to get behind the wheel as he starts his own transition from stock car to fulltime sports car racing.  “I am beyond words to be entering the 2019/2020 Asian Le Mans series championship alongside Antonio Ferrari with Ligier in one of their LMP2 cars. Making the step into the international racing scene has been a dream of mine since I was young. To get the opportunity to work with Antonio and learn from him with all his success and knowledge really has me confident in building a future overseas. Driving in a prototype will be far from what I am familiar with the past few years in NASCAR, but I am at ease knowing that I will be working with one of the best in prototype racing and am confident in the success to come.”

  • Grand Prix of Texas Race Review-Precision Driving

    NewsComments (0)

    On March 29, 2018 • By

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: March 29, 2018

    This past weekend at Circuit of the America’s marked the first event of the 2018 Pirelli World Challenge (PWC) Sprint X championship.  The Sarasota-based Precision Driving team will be doing both the Sprint and Sprint X championships this season in their new BMW M4 GT4 for the GTS category in addition to their tried and true Ferrari 458 in GT Cup.

    Team Owner and driver Marko Radisic is sharing driving duties with former Radical Cup driver David Roberts in both cars this season in the duo’s efforts to bring home double championships in the Am-Am division of each category.  Radisic is looking to follow up on a strong showing in the 2017 Sprint X championship, while Roberts made his series debut.

    The weekend started out in normal fashion, dialing in both cars on scrubbed tires to focus on the overall race-ability of each car.  The Ferrari encountered a rare alternator issue, and with no replacement to be sourced, the team focused their efforts on the BMW.

    Radisic would qualify the car for Saturday’s race in the 14th starting position.  With multiple yellow flags to start the race and some swift reactions to stay out of the fray, Marko only had a handful of green flag laps to pick up positions before turning the car over to David.  David settled in during his first PWC event and took the checkered flag in 13th position.  The pairing showed enough pace during the race to be 6th place on the starting grid in race two on Sunday.

    This time Roberts would make the start; losing nine positions early as he was forced wide into the grass during the second green flag lap to miss getting caught up in an incident.  Upon gathering up his GTS machine, he started reclaiming those lost positions, and by the time he turned the car over to Radisic, was back into 7th position.  Marko picked up where David left off and the duo would finish race two under caution in 5th position in Am-Am and 16th overall for a strong points day for the pair. Team had pace on position cars just ahead for a podium had the yellow flag not ended the race.

    “After so much carnage that took place on the race weekend, I’m just thankful David and I were able to bring it back in one piece” Radisic states.  Of his debut, Roberts reflects, “This was my World Challenge debut, but I’ve also never raced at COTA, which was a very different circuit for me.  I really enjoy working with the Precision Driving team and building that chemistry.  The M4 GT4 is a great car with a lot of mechanical grip, and really look forward to what the season can bring there.  For the Ferrari, who doesn’t want to drive a Ferrari?!”

    In addition to his driving duties, David Roberts is also a professional MMA fighter with his next bout in the CXF 12: Burbank Beatdown on April 21st at 7:00 pm PT.  Fans can watch live at www.mmatixx.com.

    Broadcast of the Grand Prix of Texas will be on CBS Sports Network on April 5th, 2018 at 8:00 pm ET.

  • Racers Edge Motorsports Enters California 8-Hours

    NewsComments (0)

    On July 10, 2017 • By

    For immediate release –  July 10, 2017

    Racers Edge Motorsports, championship winning race team and the North American Distributor for SIN CARS, announced today it will enter two SIN R1 GT4 machines in the California 8-Hours at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca on October 14-15. The event is part of the Intercontinental GT Challenge, organized by the SRO Motorsports Group with assistance for this North American round by the Pirelli World Challenge Series. For driver line-ups, each GT4 entry will be required to have three drivers, with a maximum of one Gold (or Platinum) and a minimum of one Bronze rated driver, allowing for multiple combinations of competitive line-ups. This should be one cool event!

    GT4 class cars are relatively new to North American competition, so many GT4 teams have yet to participate in events this long. None the less, many of the GT4 cars themselves have already been severely tested this way in Europe, as there they routinely enter endurance races of all durations, including 24-hour events. Racers Edge Motorsports has been fielding race cars for over 27 years and has extensive experience in endurance sports car racing, including seven Rolex 24 Hour races at Daytona.

    For the Racers Edge team, the lure of fielding a pair of SIN R1 racers in this inaugural event was really strong. As Team Manager Jon Mirachi explained; “The opportunity to run the SIN R1 GT4 in longer races just has immense appeal for us. The SIN has racked up seven wins in Pirelli World Challenge competition, so it’s proven to be a competitive GT4 machine. Additionally, the cars are over-built and with power steering, ABS and traction control, should be well suited to longer races. Combine our endurance racing background with the success of the SIN in sprint races, and we really look forward to competing in an 8-Hour race at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca!”

    The team is currently seeking funded drivers interested in taking part in this exciting International Event and those interested should contact Eric Burch at the P1 Groupe.
