Anchored by full-season campaigns by returning Masters Class champions David Williams and Michael Levitas, TPC Racing will compete in the Porsche Sprint Challenge North America by Yokohama with a total of four entries across all three series in the USAC-sanctioned all-Porsche series.

Williams will return for his second full-season of series competition after securing last year’s 992 Masters Class title and overall championship runner-up honors in his No. 237 Mission BBQ Porsche 911 GT3 Cup.

Levitas in turn is back to defend his 2022 Masters Class title and runner-up points finish in the 991 division in his No. 36 Erin Levitas Foundation Porsche.

The team will welcome a third full-season entry in a new partnership with Henning Rader and Monoflo International.

The TPC Racing-prepared No. 77 Monoflo International Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport will be shared by Tillman Schmid and Evan Hinkle, who will split driving duties throughout the season in the Porsche Sprint Challenge Cayman class.

“We have the reigning Masters Class champions in the 991 and 992 categories coming back with David Williams in the No. 237 Mission BBQ Porsche 992 and Michael Levitas behind the wheel of the No. 136 Erin Levitas Foundation Porsche 991,” said the team’s director of race operations Harris Levitas.

“We are thrilled to have for a full season the No. 77 Monoflo International Cayman GT4 Clubsport with a pair of drivers, Tillman Schmid and Evan Hinkle, cycling through the car this year.

“We are very excited to have them onboard and can’t thank the Monoflo team and Henning Rader enough for the opportunity to be running them this season.

“We are also delighted to have Shaun McKaigue back for a partial season in the No. 134 Porsche 991 category car coming down from Canada. He is a great guy who has improved so much on the track the last couple of years and we are excited to have him back with us for the majority of the year’s races.”

Along with TPC driver coach Billy Johnson, Williams, Levitas and McKaigue all took part in the recent PCA Club Racing 48 Hours of Sebring event earlier this month at Sebring International Raceway.

The Florida circuit hosts the opening rounds of the Porsche Sprint Challenge season on March 24-26.

“Sebring was a really good event for the guys to kind of dust off the cars and get themselves prepped for the year,” Harris Levitas said.

“It seems like it has been a bit of a long winter since our last event at COTA to now and basically getting our Porsche Sprint Challenge season going at the 48 Hours of Sebring.

“Everybody did a great job and the cars have been just phenomenal. We have really come to grips on the handling and can’t wait to get the season started.”
