Costa Mesa, Calif. (8 September 2015) – It’s been an incredible season of Pirelli World Challenge competition for Sloan Urry and SecurityNational that has seen the No. 02 Porsche compete on a wide range of road and street courses across North America. This weekend, the 2015 GT Cup presented by MOMO championship comes to a close at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca at what is one of the favorite tracks on the 2015 calendar for both drivers and fans alike.
The event will cap off what has been an impressive year for Urry in which he’s tallied 12 podium results in 18 races. Those results have seen Urry stay in contention for the championship through most of the 2015 season.
He currently sits second in the standings with 1534 points.
With the championship title already wrapped up by Urry’s TruSpeed Autosport / Kelly Moss teammate Colin Thompson, the goal for Urry this weekend will be to take a victory at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca while also locking in second in the 2015 championship.
Urry claimed a podium finish at Laguna Seca last year while driving for JDX Racing in Porsche GT3 Cup competition. The 2.238-mile track is a challenging one and is known for its elevation changes and signature “Corkscrew” corner combination.
“I can’t believe we are already at the last event on the Pirelli World Challenge 2015 calendar but I can’t be happier that it’s at Laguna Seca,” said Urry. “I have quite a bit of experience at Laguna Seca and it is one of my favorite tracks – it’s hard to beat The Corkscrew! The track has a great flow to it and is a blast to drive. We have some good momentum from the last weekend at Sonoma, so I’m eager to get back at it. As always I know TruSpeed will do their side of things and give me a great car. It’s up to me to end the season on a good note for the SecurityNational/Engel & Volkers car.”
The season-finale weekend will begin with testing and practice on Thursday. A second practice session takes place on Friday with qualifying scheduled for 11:25 AM PST on Saturday. The race is set for Sunday with festivities beginning at 1:35 PM PST.
