ANSA MOTORSPORTS: 2017 PIRELLI WORLD CHALLENGE PROGRAM
ANSA Motorsports’ goal is to continue to have a strong presence in the 2017 Pirelli World Challenge. With an exciting 2017 schedule, ANSA Motorsports is set to return to the PWC series with multiple programs in the GT4/GTS and SprintX GT championships.
In only two seasons, ANSA Motorsports became one of the top teams in the Pirelli World Challenge paddock and is ready to continue its winning tradition with new drivers in 2017.
The team is looking to race three KTM X-Bows in the GT4 championship and in the SprintX championship GT4 class, depending on drivers’ expectations and wishes.
ANSA Motorsports introduced the first KTM X-Bow race,car in November 2015 and won the four-hour endurance classic Miami 500 – the first-ever race entered with the X-Bow. The KTM made its debut in the 2016 Pirelli World Challenge and forged itself an impressive, winning background. KTM scored the most points in 2016 to win the manufacturer championship, but since it was not registered as a manufacturer, the title went to another car maker.
Engineered by Reiter Engineering, the KTM X-Bow GT4 features the most advanced racing technology, which is normally only the case in higher categories. And in matters of safety, the monocoque technology offers the most unique protection ever in this class. The vehicle showcases the typically futuristic Reiter Engineering KTM design. Not only is the overall design impressive, but the technology behind the completely redesigned exterior will be state-of-the-art. The KTM is powered by a 360 HP 2.0 liter Audi turbo engine.
2017 PIRELLI WORLD CHALLENGE GTS/GT4 SCHEDULE
For 2017, the Pirelli World Challenge GTS/GT4 Championship will compete in some of the largest media markets in the country, including St. Petersburg/Tampa, San Francisco, Milwaukee, Salt Lake City, Hartford, Greensboro, Columbus and Toronto in Canada. Most events will feature large crowds and tons of opportunities for driver/team sponsors to activate their sponsorship programs and promote and market their products to the potential one million fans of the Pirelli World Challenge. The 2017 GTS/GT4 championship will be broadcast live on the PWC website and will also feature one-hour broadcast on CBS Sports.

2017 PIRELLI WORLD CHALLENGE SPRINTX SCHEDULE
2016 marked the inaugural season of the Sprint-X GT Championship Series. Similar to GT races in the Pirelli World Challenge, SprintX races have a sprint format, as races are 60 minutes in length. The difference between a GT race and a SprintX race is that each SprintX race features a mandatory driver change and up to one tire change between the 25-and 35-minute mark of the race, leading to plenty of strategy by the team’s engineers.
The 2017 Pirelli World Challenge SprintX Championship will feature three classes. GT, GT-Cup and GTS/GT4. The 2017 SprintX Championship will be broadcast live on the PWC website and will also feature one-hour broadcast on CBS Sports.
ANSA Motorsports successfully fielded one Porsche GT3 Cup in the GT-Cup class in the final two rounds of the 2016 SprintX championship and scored two third-place finishes.
