19-year old ANSA Motorsports driver Dore Chaponick Jr., started his professional auto racing career with ANSA Motorsports in 2015 in the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA then continued racing with ANSA Motorsports in several races in the FARA USA series. Last November Chaponick Jr. was the first driver to test and race the KTM X-Bow in South Florida. Chaponick impressed his team and finished second in the FARA race of Champions. A month later, Chaponick was one of the two drivers to win the first big win for KTM in North America, with co-driver Patrick Dussault. Chaponick and Dussault won the MP-2a class in the FARA USA Miami 500. The youngster showed his true talent during the four-hour endurance race and did not make any mistake. ANSA Motorsports selected Chaponick Jr. to drive one of the team’s KTM X-Bow GT4s this season in the Pirelli World Challenge GTS championship. Chaponick has been around motorsports his entire life. He began karting at the young age of 8 and has been behind the wheel ever since. Highlighting his career in karting thus far is his 2008 Florida Winter Tour Rotax Mini-Max Championship, where, racing against racers from all over the world, Chaponick earned three victories and five podiums in six events to earn the honor. In 2010, Chaponick claimed the Pan Am Rotax Junior Vice-Championship, and a berth on Team USA and a trip to Italy for the Rotax Max Challenge Grand Finals. In 2011, Chaponick earned the title of Florida Winter Tour Rotax Junior Champion and will make a return trip to the Rotax Max Challenge Grand Finals with Team USA in November at the Al-Ain Raceway in Al-Ain, United Arab Emirates. In 2012, Chaponick had an extensive European test program in Formula 3, Formula E and Formula Abarth. In 2013, he made his open-wheel racing debut in North America, competing in the US F-1000. Chaponick raced the first eight Pirelli World Challenge GTS races this season and after a short break, returned behind the wheel of the No. 12 KTM X-Bow last week at Utah Motorsports Campus. The team was impressed by his ability to go fast after a three-month break. Chaponick drove the No. 12 ANSA Motorsports KTM X-Bow GT4 to within one second of the top practice lap Friday morning and ended the first Utah official session in third place. Chaponick was able to score his fifth top-ten of the season. With the next two California GTs events in Sonoma and Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, Chaponick is aiming for his first podium finish but don’t count him out of the top-podium position since the racer from Florida knows his way to the winner’s circle.
