"The Porsche 911 is an iconic sports car which follows tradition of proving its abilities on-road and on-track," said Alexander Pollich, president and CEO, Porsche Cars Canada, Ltd. “I am happy to offer our 2016 season’s champion the opportunity to extend his experience with a 911 on a daily basis for the next year. Congratulations to Daniel Morad on an outstanding season."
Said Morad: "Porsche Cars Canada, Ltd. has done an incredible job with the 2016 Ultra 94 Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Canada by Yokohama series. It has become a proving ground for young drivers and a place for gentlemen drivers to also have fun. I’m excited that I’ll be able to get behind the wheel of a 2017 Porsche 911 to experience the all-season capability of this sports car. I sincerely thank Porsche Cars Canada, Ltd for this gesture.”
Morad first joined the series in 2015 and soon found his home with Porsche Centre Oakville / Alegra Motorsports. Competition was fierce this season with Scott Hargrove with OpenRoad Racing Porsche finishing just five points behind in the standings, 205-200. Series rookie Zach Robichon made a quick impression in the field and finished in third with 185 points.
