Team owner Tyler Tadevic said: “It is awesome to finally be able to announce our participation in the 2018 Pirelli World Challenge. We have been hard at work for the past three months securing equipment and the proper personnel to put together a winning program from the very first event onwards.

“While our driver lineup and official team name is set to be announced in the very near future, I can officially say that we will house a pair of former Stevenson Motorsports Audi R8 GT3 machines and compete in the PWC Sprint and SprintX programs in 2018.”

Tadevic continued, “It is an honor to continue on with the equipment that was meticulously maintained by Stevenson and we look forward to taking it back to the top. We have huge goals for 2018 and cannot wait to announce more details about our program.”

TruSpeed’s founder Rob Morgan, who will rejoin his former program in a management role, said: “I am confident that we are putting together one of the better programs in the PWC paddock. We have high quality equipment, very fast drivers and a solid engineering staff in place to win.

“We will go through an extensive test program over the next few months to ensure that we are ready for the season opening event in St. Petersburg, Florida in March.”

TruSpeed last raced in PWC in 2016, taking Sloan Urry to second in GT Cup with five wins.
