PIRELLI WORLD CHALLENGE
(ABOVE) Corey Fergus was the model of consistency in TC,
winning if he could, but grabbing solid points when he couldn’t.
FERGUS POWERED BY FAMILY
Successful SCCA club racer Corey Fergus
took the Pirelli World Challenge’s Touring
Car class in his family-run Porsche Cayman.
Dad John (himself a 15-time SCCA
champion) is the team owner and Corey’s
uncle is crew chief, and together the
familial group took on some serious
opposition and the constant specter of
PWC’s performance adjustments to build
an impressively consistent championship
push. Three wins were the centerpiece
results, but it was the 12 other top-six
finishes from 18 races that powered the
rookie’s debut TC title.
“We just kept testing and we really
made our car the best it could possibly
be,” said Fergus. “I have to thank my
family for being there and working their
butts off to accomplish this with me.”
Behind, Ernie Francis Jr. finished
runner-up with four wins, ahead of fellow
Mazda MX- 5 racer Adam Poland. But it was
Vesko Kozarov who racked up the big win
tally, taking seven in total. Unfortunately,
the Nissan Altima driver was forced to
miss the Mosport triple-header and that,
combined with a handful of troubled
races, blunted his title challenge.
The ATS-V was Cadillac’s first GT3 car, it
having run to PWC’s own tech rules prior
to that. But despite developing it on the
fly, O’Connell ended the season with
four wins and 13 other top- 10 finishes.
