Tomy Drissi and No. 15 The Amazing Spider-Man 2 TRG Aston Martin Weave A Wicked Web at Long Beach

Tomy Drissi made his 2014 Pirelli World Challenge debut on the Streets of Long Beach this past weekend, competing in the "Roar by the Shore" presented by KIA, as part of the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach.

Driving the No. 15 TRG Aston Martin in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 livery,  Drissi, a Hollywood native, was hoping to bring a bit of a home court advantage this weekend.  Tomy’s previous successes at Long Beach includes a win in Trans Am and podiums in IMSA prototypes. Unfortunately, his race ended just a few laps earlier than expected.

“This was a fantastic weekend,” said Tomy. “The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Aston Martin was so well received. The fans… especially the kids, loved the car. Everyone coming through the Expo Center paddock would flock to the car for pictures. We’re thrilled to have Sony on board with us and glad we could give The Amazing Spider-Man 2 some pre-release exposure. It was great!”

“This is such an iconic event,” added Tomy. “For me personally, it’s my home track. Plus, I got my first Trans Am win here… many of my friends and supporters are here… it’s just a great weekend. I really look forward to it each and every year.”

“Drissi Motorsports teamed up with Kevin Buckler and the guys at TRG-AMR to get the Aston Martin Amazing Spider-Man 2 car up to speed,” Tomy noted. “We faced a few challenges throughout the weekend… especially with braking. We really had a tough time getting the car to stop. By the end of practice we had found the speed… but handling and braking continued to elude us. I have to say, though, the guys on the crew worked their butts off trying to get things sorted out and helping me find the handle.”
