Alegra Brings Two: Porsche Stalwart To Run Pair of 911 GT3 R in GT World Challenge America

Alegra Motorsports announced a two-car program that will field the newest generation Porsche 911 GT3 R in the 2019 Blancpain GT World Challenge America (formerly known as Pirelli World Challenge) season.

One of the 500 hp machines will contest the Pro class with former Porsche factory drivers Wolf Henzler (Germany) and Marco Holzer (Germany). The second car, a Pro-Am effort, will see team principal and two-time Rolex 24 At Daytona GT class winner Carlos de Quesada (Tampa, Florida) share the 911 GT3 R with fellow Rolex 24 winner and Porsche Young Driver Academy graduate Daniel Morad (Canada).

Tony Ditto, Team Manager, Alegra Motorsports.
“It’s going to be exciting to be a part of the new format. The team did well in the 2018 SprintX GT Championship last year, so we’re looking to carry that momentum forward. The Porsche experience that Henzler and Holzer bring to the track is great. They know the machines and understand how to extract maximum performance from them, so that’s something we’ll definitely be tapping into this year.”
