Burtin Racing announced the West Coast XGT Champion, Simon Gregg, as a full-time addition to their roster for the 2021 Trans Am Presented by Pirelli Championship. Gregg will be driving the #59 Burtin Racing Chevy Camaro alongside Tomy Drissi in the popular Lucas SlickMist #8 Burtin Racing Chevy Camaro in the top-tier Trans Am Series. In addition to the two Chevy Camaros, Burtin Racing will be adding a separate schedule for Simon Gregg in the Mercedes Benz AMG for the XGT class.
“I’m excited to start the TA season with both Simon Gregg and Tomy Drissi, both are experienced drivers who have a lot to offer. They’re two great guys that I can get behind and I’m proud to have them both under the Burtin Racing tent,” said team owner Claudio Burtin. “We have been slowly expanding the racing effort, and we welcome a busy 2021.”
Burtin Racing has recently expanded from a 25,000 square foot facility to a 73,000 square foot facility that not only expands the in-house operations but will also house the headquarters to Burtin Polymer Innovations and Auto Playhouse.
