Taggart Autosport Rally Fighter Maserati VIR Weekend Guide

What: Taggart Autosport makes its debut in the 2014 Maserati Trofeo with a one-off appearance for drivers Tom Long and Jim Taggart this weekend at VIRginia International Raceway in the Local Motors Rally Fighter Maserati entry.

New: Just about everything, except the track. Organized by the Maserati factory, the Championship travels all over the world with a fleet of identical Italian-built supercars and international television coverage. The cars have around 500 horsepower.

Sponsor: New for the weekend is Local Motors Rally Fighter branding on the Taggart Autosport Maserati. Learn more about the Rally Fighter, and buy and build one yourself, check out more here.

VIR: Is one of the Taggart group’s favorite road courses, and the local track for the team. Seventeen turns of recently re-paved road course are quick and daring. Both drivers know the track like the back of their band, and Jim Taggart had no problem dominating an SCCA Majors race there earlier this year.

Jim Taggart: Coming off his best pro performance yet, Taggart took a second and third place in the Pirelli World Challenge Championships doubleheader at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course a few weeks ago in his No. 7 Absolut Vodka Porsche GT3R in the GT-A category.

Tom Long: Doing double-duty, Tom Long will also be racing a Miata at VIR in another Championship. Check out some local news coverage (video) of Mr. Long here.

The Series: The Maserati Trofeo schedule includes Italy, Belgium, Hungary, Britain, the U.S. this weekend, followed by rounds in Shanghai and Abu Dhabi. The events generally feature two short sprint races and a single hour-long endurance race, along with plenty of practice time.

Sharing: Jim and Tom will share the Maserati for the weekend, with each running a single sprint race and then both doing a 30-minute stint in Sunday’s one-hour endurance event.
