ANSA MOTORSPORTS PREPARES FOR PWC SEASON AT COTA
ANSA Motorsports attended the Balance of Performance (BOP) test days organized at Circuit of the Americas with its REITER Engineering KTM X-Bow GT4. The BOP test was organized by Pirelli World Challenge officials to evaluate and balance the performance with the existing cars already competing in the series and all the new cars, including the KTM X-Bow GT4, that teams have the intention to enter in the 2016 Pirelli World Challenge GT and GTS championships. For the two days of testing, ANSA Motorsports had two drivers on hand at COTA. Dore Alexander Chaponick Jr., a rookie in the PWC championship, and Brett Sandberg, an experienced PWC series driver. Both drivers are interested to compete in the 2016 Pirelli World Challenge Championship with ANSA Motorsports. Chaponick already raced twice in 2015 the ANSA Motorsports KTM. After scoring the class pole position, Chaponick and co-driver Patrick Dussault took the checkered flag in the four-hour FARA Miami 500 last November. This marked the first class win for the KTM X-Bow GT4 in the United States. Brett Sandberg tested the KTM X-Bow GT4 at Homestead for the first time a week before the COTA BOP test days. Both drivers liked the performance of the KTM in its original version and are anxious to hear from Pirelli World Challenge officials about the BOP situation. The 2016 Pirelli World Challenge GTS Championship starts in two weeks at COTA and ANSA Motorsports is looking to make an announcement to unveil drivers and the team’s PWC racing program next week.
