Pfaff Motorsports with an Audi car in the Canadian TCC
04 July 2020
Pfaff Motorsports announced its participation in the full season of the 2020 Canadian TCC, fielding an Audi RS 3 LMS car that will be driven by 17-year-old Canadian Zachary Vanier.
The announcement comes following Canada/USA border complications as a result of COVID-19, which has rendered the Canadian-based team unable to participate in the ongoing IMSA Michelin Challenge for the time being.
Pfaff Motorsports team manager Steve Bortolotti said: “Unfortunately crossing the border isn’t an easy thing for us to do because of our quarantine measures in Canada. I think we’re making the most out of a difficult situation. Racing in the CTCC is a great opportunity to give a young driver – who showed extremely well in karting and F1600 – a chance to work with a pro team and get experience with a great driver coach and engineer.”
Vanier’s successes have followed him throughout his young career, with 17 podiums in 18 races during the 2019 F1600 Canadian championship. “Racing for Pfaff is a very big step in my career,” Vanier said. “I’m very thankful to be able to race with this team – it’s a great group and everybody is just positive and friendly, so coming in here felt like home right away, which has made everything a lot easier. I’m definitely coming in with some pretty high goals. We want to win the championship – that’s where my sights are set.”
