TRG-Aston Martin Racing North America
(TRG-AMR), will hit the streets of Long Beach this weekend with four strong entries for the third round of the Pirelli World Challenge. Green flag for the "Roar at the Shore presented by Kia" race, Sunday, April 13 is at 4:30 p.m. PDT/1:30 p.m. EDT. With a lineup of three drivers and their stunning Aston Martin Vantage GT4 cars and one Hollywood style liveried Aston Martin Vantage GT3 car, this is sure to be an attention getter from the TRG-AMR stable.

Denver native Drew Regitz, who began with TRG-AMR last season, comes to Long Beach after an admirable run in the Pirelli World Challenge opening race in St. Petersburg. He joins fellow World Challenge competitor Nick Esayian for the 2014 season. Esayian finished eighth in the Drivers' Championship for GTS last year, and is looking to advance on his finish at St. Pete in late March.

Also joining the TRG-AMR foursome at Long Beach is Texan Jorge De LaTorre, who has experience in karting and Formula 3. The St. Petersburg Grand Prix was De LaTorre's first major sports car race and first street race, helping him prepare for yet another tight street course racing in the Southern California concrete jungle.

Tomy Drissi, a professional race car driver whose company has ties to several Hollywood motion film studios, completes the TRG-AMR lineup for the famous street circuit. Drissi has competed many times at Long Beach and is no stranger to success here. In 2000, he won the Grand Prix of Long Beach in the Trans-Am Series and is ready to bring a great show for his hometown fans.

Aside from his history at the Long Beach circuit, Drissi's Aston Martin will be sporting a unique livery this weekend. He has partnered with Sony Pictures' "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" movie to promote the May 2 release and hopes the eye-catching livery will bring additional attention to TRG-AMR.

"It's been quite a feat to get these four Aston Martin race cars out here for this awesome race on the streets of Long Beach," said TRG-AMR CEO Kevin Buckler. "Each of our TRG-AMR drivers has been busy preparing for this weekend, and although tight street circuits like this one are full of challenges, I think we've got the team to beat and the guys will all be ready. We've had some strong runs here and we want to repeat that for a big crowd this weekend."

The Long Beach Pirelli World Challenge race broadcast can be viewed live at 4:00 p.m. PDT/7:00 p.m. EDT at www.world-challengetv.com. NBC Sports Network will broadcast the race at 2:30 p.m. PDT/5:30 p.m. EDT on April 20.

TRG-AMR North America, LLC is a full-service motorsports company focused on winning competition at every level, with one of the most successful track records of any North American racing operation. TRG-AMR exclusively operates the Aston Martin sports car racing program in North America.

In 2014, TRG-AMR fields two V12 Vantage GT3 cars in the GT Daytona class of the IMSA TUDOR United SportsCar Championship, multiple Vantage GT4 cars in the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge and four entries in the Pirelli World Challenge. This year, TRG-AMR is also launching a one-make series, the Aston Martin GT4 Challenge of North America, and services multiple customer racing programs through its total driver ladder approach.

TRG-AMR, based in Petaluma, Calif., has competed in the top levels of motor racing since it was founded in 1993. The team has earned four series championships, four Rolex 24 At Daytona victories, a victory in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, a victory at Petit Le Mans and entered 2014 with 122 combined podium finishes in major North American sports car competition, the third-highest total in history and the most for a privateer team.

The company also offers comprehensive sponsorship and business opportunities, including traditional sponsorship, executive events, business-to-business and experiential marketing. These programs can be activated from events ranging from track days through professional motorsports.

TRG-AMR's sister company, Adobe Road Winery, features hand-crafted small lot wines produced from some of the finest vineyards in Sonoma and Napa counties. It has developed a reputation as one of Northern California's hottest boutique wineries, producing many award-winning wines. With an Adobe Road tasting room on the historic square in Sonoma, and many special events and private gatherings at the TRG-AMR headquarters, the two companies complement each other well.
