Tom O’Gorman will compete on Bridgestone Potenza RE-71RS tires in the World Racing League (WRL) Grand Touring Over (GTO) class during the 2024 season.

O’Gorman will race a 2012 Porsche 987 Cayman equipped with Bridgestone Potenza RE-71RS tires and wrapped in a special Bridgestone livery in the WRL.

Launched in April 2022, the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71RS tire is engineered for grassroots racing, designed with track day, autocross and endurance racing drivers in mind. The flagship Potenza product, RE-71RS, is a dedicated track tire designed for precision performance, delivering blistering lap times, enhanced steering and grip, and extended wear life. The Bridgestone Potenza RE-71RS tire is available in 38 sizes from 15 to 20-inch rim diameters in the U.S. and Canadian markets. Popular fitments include Porshe Cayman, Mazda Miata, Subaru BRZ, Ford Mustang and BMW 3-Series.

O’Gorman is a professional driver with race wins in the IMSA SportsCar Championship series and is also a two-time SRO World Challenge TC Champion and seven-time SCCA Autocross National Champion. Additionally, he won the 2022 GRIDLIFE Touring Cup championship utilizing Bridgestone Potenza RE-71RS tires upon its release in the summer of 2022. O’Gorman also helped take Rockwell Autosport Development to the 2023 ChampCar Endurance National Championship on Bridgestone Potenza RE-71RS tires.

The WRL is a highly competitive, professional-level racing series, which is celebrating its 10th year of operation in 2024. GTO represents the lowest PWR (Power to Weight Ratio) class in WRL, which is its fastest category. O’Gorman is partnering with Bridgestone to ride on Potenza RE-71RS tires for the duration of the WRL 2024 season, which continues through December. For more information, please visit racewrl.com.
