Tomy Drissi Takes The Kung Fu Panda 2 Porsche GT3 Racing In Canada

Pirelli World Challenge Series' Rounds 5 and 6  at Mosport International Raceway

Leaving the sunny confines of Hollywood, California, Tomy Drissi is heading to Canada where he will drive the No. 5 Kung Fu Panda 2 / Muscle Milk Porsche GT3 in the Pirelli World Challenge Series' rounds 5 and 6  at Mosport International Raceway in Bowemanville, Ontario.

Known for its rolling terrain and high speed corners, Mosport with its enthusiastic race fans is always a favorite among drivers. Tomy is no exception.

"I love coming up to Canada," said Tomy. "The fans are the best. They're knowledgable and they are totally into the racing. We always have a good time here and we're always treated extremely well."

The track also has a history of providing very good racing. Tomy has had several stand-out performances at Mosport including 3rd place at the 2000 Trans-Am Series event and again in 2003 when he put his Rocketsports Jaguar XKR on the outside pole… just heartbeat off the quick time of then teammate, Scott Pruett.

"We've had some great runs over the years at Mosport," Tomy added. "It's a fast track… but it can be a very unforgiving track. Going over the top of turn two can be a real eye-opener… yet coming up the backside on the Andretti straight, it's nothing short of a thrill."
