Shift Up Now is bringing an all-star line up of female fire-power to bring the heat to the competition at the upcoming World Racing League event at Road Atlanta on July 17th-19th.
Round 3 Racing and their partners Shell, Cooper Tires and Motiv8 Sports Group have joined forces with Shift Up Now in 2020. Through this partnership, Shift Up Now will be supplying female athletes for at least one seat in every Round 3 Racing Porsche Boxster, including an all female entry for the first time in the World Racing League in entry #604 nicknamed Road Warrior.
Sarah Montgomery will continue to spear-head the driving team in the #602 entry alongside Buz and Brad McCall, while Shea Holbrook will make her return to American endurance racing to lead the #601 team, sharing the wheel with Mo Dadkhah and Michael Gilbert. The all female driving team of the #604 will pair Pippa Mann back with Loni Unser for the second time under the Round 3 Racing banner, and they will be joined by Shift Up Now endurance racer Mandy McGee.
All three cars will be competing in the GP2 class, running on Shell V Power fuel, and laying down rubber from Cooper RS3-R tires.
Karen Salvaggio, President and Race Program Director for Shift Up Now said, “It’s an honor to be partnered with these great sponsors who support us in our mission. Having three cars in this race allows us to showcase the ability of our racers in both all female and co-ed teams helping to make both the norm for the future of racing.”
Lynn Kehoe, Founder and CEO of Shift Up Now added, “Pippa, Shea, Sarah, Loni and Mandy, as well as all of our racers are truly inspirational and role models for girls and women on and off the track.”
“Round 3 Racing and Shift Up Now continue to grow our strong partnership,” said Brad McCall, owner of Round 3 Racing. “Together with our supporters and corporate partners we’ve built a team of talented drivers and crew. We can’t wait for the race at Road Atlanta to show what this team can do!”
Fans can follow the World Racing League event at Road Atlanta via live timing on the “Race Monitor” app, and through Shift Up Now and Round 3 Racing’s social media throughout the event.
