NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (August 19, 2015)- Following a near two-month break in action for the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America, World Stage Racing’s Brian Wong will return to action during this weekend’s triple-header at the scenic VIRginia International Raceway. Following mixed results in the first two outings in the series, Wong will once again return to the upstart O’Gara Motorsport sharing with teammate Tom O’Gara.
“This series is always a lot of fun, I’m grateful to be back,” stated Brian Wong. “The Lamborghini Huracán is an absolutely amazing car to drive, so any chance for us to return is a welcome one. Tom O’Gara and his team always put on a great display and hopefully we can turn that into results this weekend. Sharing the car with Tom and having the opportunity to watch him elevate his driving is always a rewarding feeling, and with three races this weekend we’ll have plenty of opportunities to prove ourselves.”
Driving the No. 69 Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2, Wong will once again return with the support of World Stage Racing who will use this event as a proving ground for some upcoming announcements. Due to the weather cancellation of the most recent race at Watkins Glen International, this weekend will actually hold three races with Race One and Two occurring on Saturday, and Race Three on Sunday.
In his first two weekends with the team, Wong has enjoyed mixed results. While missteps in strategy have cost the team during their debut and most recent events, a podium result in the Pro-Am category during his second race at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca was proof of the potential of the team.
Practice will take place this Thursday and Friday, August 20 and 21, with the event’s three races taking place August 22 and 23. Live coverage can be found at http://squadracorse.lamborghini.com.
