After kicking off the 2018 season at the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg with a podium result including the ‘Hard Charger’ and ‘Start of the Race’ awards, TruSpeed AutoSport driver Parker Chase will look to better those results this weekend at the Circuit of the Americas (COTA). With the pristine facility located less than an hour from his home, the 17-year-old will look to build off his first weekend behind the wheel of an Audi R8 LMS GT3 as he returns to the site of a double podium result last season.
Taking on the Pirelli World Challenge Grand Prix of St. Petersburg, Texan Parker Chase entered his first official event as a TruSpeed AutoSport driver. Piloting the #19 Vertical Bridge / New Braunfels Visitors and Convention Bureau / ProBalance Protein Water Audi R8 LMS, the 17-year-old Chase showed speed and persistence in the GTA division as he was one of the drivers to beat throughout the weekend.
Parker Chase will be kicking off the 2018 season with TruSpeed AutoSport in the first Pirelli World Challenge (PWC) race of the year on the Streets of St. Petersburg. Taking place over the March 9-11 weekend, Chase will be piloting the #19 Vertical Bridge / New Braunfels Convention and Visitors Bureau / ProBalance Protein Water Audi R8. The talented 17-year-old has been preparing for the season by testing on the West Coast and will return to St. Petersburg, with his sights set on the top step of the podium.
A new year and a new car team for Parker Chase aren’t the only changes in 2018. With a growing brand and impressive results, several new marketing partners have hopped on board to support the sensational teenager. Kicking off his season in early March at the St. Pete Grand Prix, Chase will debut with TruSpeed AutoSport behind the wheel of a potent Audi R8 LMS.
It is a new year and a new program for a pair of drivers in 2018 as Parker Chase and Ryan Dalziel partner to join TruSpeed AutoSport for the upcoming Pirelli World Challenge program. Rumored earlier this week and now confirmed by team officials, Chase and Dalziel will pilot an Audi R8 GT3 machine as Chase will compete in the PWC GTA Sprint races while he and Dalziel will partner for the SprintX format of the series.
