Canadian outfit Pfaff Motorsports has announced that it will be expanding its 2019 IMSA effort, and contest the full 2019 WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season in GTD.
The team’s line-up for the campaign will include 2018 PWC Sprint champion Scott Hargrove, who has become a Porsche selected driver. Alongside him Zacharie Robichon, 2018 Porsche GT3 Cup Canada champion will race, while Lars Kern will join the team for all endurance races, and Porsche young professional driver Dennis Olsen will drive in the 24 Hours of Daytona with the team.
“I am excited to expand our IMSA effort beyond the originally planned sprint championship to include the North American Endurance Cup events,” said Steve Bortolotti, Pfaff Motorsports manager.
“The challenge for our team will be immense, but the Porsche customer racing model is second-to-none, and their support means we’ll be as prepared as possible for our first endurance races. I’m also happy Scott is becoming a Porsche delected driver. He is an incredible talent behind the wheel, and a true professional off-track.
“We are all proud of the role Pfaff has played in his development, and hope this leads to more opportunities in the future with the Porsche brand.”
Hargrove added: “2019 is shaping up to be a massively exciting season. Racing with Pfaff Motorsports in GTD for the full season showcases the drive this team has on- and off-track. They are always looking for more. It is an honour to be a part of the effort, and I can’t wait to hit the track with my new teammates in Daytona.”
