Where: The streets of St. Petersburg, Florida, for a double race weekend and the same track where Jim Taggart made his pro debut – a year ago.

Rookie of the Year: Taggart earned Rookie of the Year honors in 2013, racing a Lotus Exige in the GTS class in Pirelli World Challenge. His best finish to date in the series is sixth place (Detroit), and his strongest showings for 2013 seemed to come on tricky and tight street tracks.

The Car: The two-door Porsche ha s a 4.0-liter V6 boxer engine good for around 400 horsepower, and the pre-season base weight is listed by the Pirelli World Challenge competition department at 1,200kg.

Arming Up: Since last season the Pirelli World Challenge has not only welcomed Taggart’s upgraded entry in a GT3-spec Porsche, but new cars include McLarens, Ferraris, Lamborghinis and other exotic makes for a highly anticipated 16-round 2014 season.
