Porsche Centre Oakville/Alegra Motorsports is quickly becoming a performance racing leader, with four championship victories in just their second season of competition.
Leading the charge has been veteran driver Daniel Morad, whose consistently stellar performance earned him the 2016 Ultra 94 Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Canada by Yokohama Platinum Driver title, as well as the inaugural IMSA North American Cup, an award given to the driver with the most points who competed in at least two races in both the Canadian and American series.
For his efforts in the Canadian GT3 Cup series Morad was rewarded with more than just a trophy – he drove away in a new 911 Carrera in Guards Red, which he’ll have to enjoy for a year, courtesy of Porsche Cars Canada, Ltd. “I’m excited that I’ll be able to get behind the wheel of a 2017 Porsche 911 to experience the all-season capability of this sports car,” said Morad.
Also winning accolades for the squad was 16-year-old, and budding superstar, Michael de Quesada, who became the youngest driver in history to win the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama Gold Class championship.
As a team, Porsche Centre Oakville/Alegra Motorsports was awarded the Ultra 94 Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Canada by Yokohama Platinum Class team title, with heavy contributions from both Morad and Masters Class driver Tim Sanderson.
“On behalf of the Policaro Automotive Family, I’d like to congratulate the entire team for their extraordinary efforts and tenacity,” says Francesco Policaro, General Manager of Porsche Centre Oakville. “The partnership between Porsche Centre Oakville and Alegra Motorsports, combined with our driver achievements, netted a truly thrilling season. Moving forward, we’re committed to building upon that success in Motorsport.”
