Capaldi Racing Returns To Pirelli World Challenge
(Capaldi Racing Press Release)
After a successful debut season within the Pirelli World Challenge TCB Class, Capaldi Racing is pleased to announce that it is returning to the series with the intent to campaign the entire 2013 season. However, instead of trusting the Ford Racing B-Spec Ford Fiesta to 2012 season runner-up, Craig Capaldi, Craig's brother, Chris, has been chosen to pilot the car. A road racing veteran, Chris has extensive experience racing front-wheel-drive cars, driving a Ford Focus to multiple track records in NASA's Spec Focus class, and taking a regional championship in that same car. Recently, Chris made the move to rear-wheel drive and raced two seasons in a 2005 Ford Mustang GT in NASA's Camaro Mustang Challenge.
Chris will be running the full 14-race season with Wolverine Bronze Company on board as his primary sponsor. In addition to Wolverine Bronze, Chris will continue promoting Capaldi Racing's efforts to raise awareness for the Band of Angels Foundation, a Michigan-based charity that helps individuals and families with members with Down syndrome, autism, and other disabilities.
"I couldn't believe it when they asked me to run the Fiesta," said Chris Capaldi. "Ever since the B-Spec class was announced, I thought it sounded like a ton of fun. I'm excited to be working with Wolverine Bronze again this year. They are a great group of people and I can't thank them enough for all their support. It's also great to be able to put the Band of Angels in the national spotlight. We have a blast working with them at their various events. I'm looking forward to building on my brother's success last year."
In addition to the Fiesta in TCB, Capaldi Racing will also be running two Mustangs in the Pirelli World Challenge GTS class. Rounds 1-3 of the 2013 Pirelli Word Challenge TCB Season are May 17 at the brand new Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas.
