(Randolph, NJ Feb. 9, 2015)
Robby is happy to announce his partnership with team owner Kevin Anderson and TechSport racing for the 2015 season. TechSport Racing is an emerging team in Pirelli World Challenge, fielding two Mazda RX-8’s in the TCA category, with the possibility of adding a third car. Team owner Kevin Anderson initially began TechSport Racing in 2013 after a long tenure in club racing running Spec Miata. Kevin has had a lifelong passion for racing and is now expanding his efforts full time into Pirelli World Challenge.
The two car effort will include Kevin in the 22 car and Robby in the 23 car. “I’m really looking forward to this year,” explained Foley. “I think we have a really good package and it fits well into the TCA formula.” Foley has a wealth of experience in these types of cars on the strength of his last two years in MX-5 Cup as well as several SCCA endurance races in similarly prepared RX-8’s. Foley is signed on as a full time driver and also a consultant to help Kevin develop the team.
“Kevin contacted me over the winter with his vision on where he wanted to take his program and we both agreed he had a good package to contend for a championship in 2015. Together this year we hope to have a strong showing and build the reputation of the team in order to expand in the future.”
The team had a promising pre season test at COTA where Robby and Kevin both got time to familiarize themselves with the track. Robby was able to get some dry track time despite rain both testing days in order to develop the setup on the car. “The car is really well balanced,” explained Foley. “COTA is such a unique track with the variety of corners which made it difficult to find a good setup, but I am happy with the progress and think we have a good baseline going into the first Pirelli World Challenge race weekend.”
Robby and TechSport Racing begin their season at Circuit of the America’s March 6th, for the first three rounds of the Pirelli World Challenge TCA championship.
