Pirelli World Challenge Touring Car champion Corey Fergus will stick with Porsche and advance classes for 2016, as he’ll shift from a Cayman in TC to a Porsche 911 GT3 Cup in the GT Cup class.
Fergus’ GT Cup entry will prepared by Motorsports Promotions and owned by Byers Imports. Fergus will continue his day job working with the brand as a Porsche Brand Specialist for Byers Imports.
“I’ve been a big fan of Porsche for a long time, so it was an easy decision to stay with Porsche and move up to a GT Cup car after winning the TC class last year,” Fergus said. “If the high level of competition in the TC class was any indication, I know we’ll be up against stiff competitors again.”
Fergus will receive his No. 00 Porsche 991 GT3 Cup car at the end of January, leaving a month of testing before the season opens March 3 at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas.
The 27-year-old won three times and posted 13 top-five finishes in 18 TC class starts last year.
