Laguna Beach, California — When Michael Lewis last competed at Miller Motorsports Park during the 2009 Formula BMW Americas season, he drove on the shortened “East” course layout. However, as he returns to the Toole, Utah, road circuit with EFFORT Racing this weekend, Michael will drive the team’s Porsche 911 GT3 R around the full “Outer Loop” course design for Rounds 16 and 17 of the 2015 Pirelli World Challenge (PWC) season.

Michael and the No. 41 EFFORT Racing/Curb-Agajanian Porsche 911 GT3 R have been producing strong results as of late, with three 5th-place finishes in the last four races of the PWC in the GT/GTA category.

Miller Motorsports Park, in Toole, Utah, will play host to Rounds 16 and 17 of the Pirelli World Challenge, where Michael Lewis will compete in the No. 41 EFFORT Racing/Curb-Agajanian Porsche 911 GT3 R, August 21-23, 2015.

“It has been a nice improvement since the start of the year, and it is because of the work and enthusiasm from everyone at EFFORT Racing,” explained Michael Lewis. “It would be really great to get a podium in the No. 41 Porsche 911 GT3 R to accompany the awesome performances by my teammate, Ryan Dalziel. Overall, the track looks to have a smooth surface and nice kerbing to use; the long main straight will definitely make for passing opportunities into the first corner. We are looking forward to fun and competitive racing at Miller!”
