Gary Sheehan returns to World Challenge GT for the racing series’ second visit to the palm lined streets of the Long Beach Grand Prix. Sheehan will pilot the potent ESX Motorsports Subaru WRX STi again in an effort to show that Subaru technology and AWD is a match for the world’s premier high performance street machinery.
“I’m very confident heading into Long Beach this year,” Sheehan said about his return. “The team has had the time and resources required to prepare our Subaru STi appropriately for this level of competition. We had our issues last year, and those are behind us now. I think this little red 4-cylinder rocket is going to make people stand up and take notice!”
The Long Beach Grand Prix is scheduled for April 13th-15th and in addition to World Challenge, will host racing from Champ Car, Champ Car Atlantic, American Le Mans Series, the Toyota Pro/Celebrity race and Formula Drift. Long Beach is one of the most popular racing events of the year for both drivers and fans alike.
