Wright On Top: 2017 Champions Return to SRO Victory Lane at Sonoma

2017 SRO Blancpain GT World Challenge America championship-winning Wright Motorsports returned to the series formerly known as Pirelli World Challenge earlier this year after a year competing in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.

Now, the John Wright-owned program returns to victory lane with a race win in the second 90-minute event of the weekend at Sonoma Raceway in California. Porsche Factory Driver Patrick Long (Thousand Oaks, California) and Porsche Selected Driver Scott Hargrove (Canada) piloted the No. 58 Porsche Consulting Wright Motorsports Porsche 911 GT3 R to the overall win on Sunday, June 9.

GMG Racing also returned to victory lane in the No. 14 Porsche 911 GT3 R. The Orange County, California-based operation had not campaigned a Porsche in the SRO GT3-spec series since 2018 but returned for two events starting with the race in Northern California. Porsche works driver Dirk Werner (Germany) was joined by owner/driver James Sofronas (Newport Beach, California) to capture the Pro-Am class title in the June 9 race.

The No. 91 Wright Motorsports Porsche with Porsche Young Professional Matt Campbell (Australia) and Anthony Imperato (Brooklyn, New York) finished in third place in the Pro-Am category.
