Yeah good move. Even though I have not been to COTA. It seems that in certain places especially if you are standing on the top of some of the grandstands you can see a large percentage of the track.

For anyone interested the TA schedule (which was apparently out when I made my earlier comment) can be found here: http://www.racinboys.com/2014/10/08/...ship-schedule/

No 'official' release or confirmation yet (but it looks reliable enough to me).

PWC and TA will not share any events in 2015. Unfortunately.

Even if you are standing on the grass you can see large portions, just like Road Atlanta - great track!

Another TUSC GTD team making the switch to PWC: NGT is planning on running 4 to 5 cars next year!

Couple of Cup Porsches but also 2 GT3 cars in GT, assuming current Porsche GT3s (but not confirmed yet).

http://www.racer.com/pwc/item/110028...orld-challenge

It's gonna be busy on the grid next year!

So that is where half the new cup class will come from! Great news, and I hope they can keep running a Momo livery on a car or two.

WOW! PWC 2014 was awesome, but 2015 is going to be MEGA!

From SC365 article.
http://sportscar365.com/imsa/tusc/20...pdate-gtlmgtd/Another potential entry.

Flying Lizard Motorsports – The IMSA stalwarts could be off to Pirelli World Challenge next year, while scaling back its TUDOR Championship involvement. The Lizards remain committed to its Audi R8 LMS cars, which may be put into action in the Patron Endurance Cup. (2 cars possible – partial season)
Also this.
Quote:
Paul Miller Racing – While having been the highest-placed Audi in 2014, the team has yet to confirm its return. A move to Pirelli World Challenge is reportedly an option, as well as an expansion to a two-car effort, should the right pieces fall into place.
Both the Lizards and PMR would be fantastic additions!

Awesome news about Turner, I read that they've already decided their drivers for next year. I'm guessing it'll be Paltula and Cameron and if that's indeed so then that'll be brilliant to watch.

JDX Racing was looking at PWC too (although not really recent news):

http://sportscar365.com/world-challe...t3-revolution/

An entry (or two) in the cup class would certainly not come as a surprise!
