Kyle Marcelli joins Orey Fidani in Cayman GT4 for Pirelli World Challenge SprintX racesMar 19th, 2018
Pfaff Motorsports alumnus Kyle Marcelli will join Orey Fidani in his Cayman GT4 Clubsport MR for SprintX races this season in the Pirelli World Challenge. Marcelli, a 27-year-old Canadian driver racing in multiple series including the IMSA WeatherTech series and Continental Tire Challenge, last drove for Pfaff in 2012, where he dominated the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Canada.
Interestingly, Marcelli’s 2012 race car was also Fidani’s first race car; the GT4 Clubsport driver purchased the car from Pfaff for the 2015 racing season, and raced it to a championship in the Canadian GT3 Challenge’s Gold class.
SprintX race weekends comprise five of the 10 weekends in Pfaff Motorsports’ Pirelli World Challenge season. The 60-minute races will feature pit stops that include refuelling, tire changes, and a driver change. In these races, Fidani and Marcelli will share the Cayman GT4 Clubsport MR in the GTS-A class. Pfaff Motorsports also races a 911 GT3 R in the GT class, with Scott Hargrove partnered by Porsche driver Wolf Henzler in SprintX weekends.
