Team TGM announces entry in the 2021 Rolex 24 at Daytona

Team TGM announces entry in the 2021 Rolex 24 at Daytona
BRASELTON, GA (Tuesday, December 1, 2020) - 2018 IMSA Michelin Pilot Series Team and Drivers Champions, Team TGM, will expand its 2021 race program by entering North America’s renowned endurance race – the IMSA Rolex 24 at Daytona International Speedway on January 30-31, 2021.
 
Team TGM will enter a Porsche 911 GT3R in the hotly contest GTD class – the team’s first entry in the WeatherTech IMSA Sportscar Championship.
 
The team will pull “double duty” at Daytona with Team TGM also kicking off its full season two-car Chevrolet Camaro assault on the IMSA Michelin Pilot Series.

“I’ve been involved in racing a long time and have put together a great team with an incredible depth of talent.  The Rolex 24 has been on my radar for many years and I think the time is right, the team is right, to step up to the challenge,” said team owner, Ted Giovanis.

Celebrating a recent win in International GT competition where Giovanis is in a closely contested Championship battle, Team TGM will conclude the IGT season in Daytona in two weeks, “I’ve raced many Porsches over my career and still do, so it’s a car that I am very familiar with and can trust to perform for the team in America’s longest professional sportscar endurance race.  Simply put, there is no denying Porsche’s success and reliability in sportscar racing.”

It will be a substantial undertaking for Team TGM who returns to IMSA competition in 2021 after sitting out much of 2020 while Giovanis and his JKTG Foundation was focused on COVID-19 vaccine research. 

“We know January is going to require a herculean effort for everyone on Team TGM, but we’re looking forward to it,” Giovanis said.

“We’re fully invested in the Michelin Pilot Challenge series and competing for a championship there, however, a run for a Rolex 24 win is on everyone’s bucket list – it will be a big challenge but the team is ready.”

More details on the Rolex 24 program including the team’s driver line-up will be revealed in the near future.  “We’ve crossed the first major hurdle and taken delivery of the race car, now quite a few parts are coming together quickly as we continue to prepare,” Giovanis said.

“We will be solidifying driver line-ups, liveries, partners, etc. and have a lot to tell in the weeks to come.  But for now, we are very excited to be able to announce Team TGM’s participation in the Rolex 24 at Daytona.”

To assist in completing a successful Rolex 24, Team TGM has partnered with industry leader, Wright Motorsports for support in race preparations and during the event. 

“John (Wright) has been closely affiliated with Porsche for many years and his wealth of experience and knowledge in all things Porsche is invaluable.  He and his team will be a huge help for us as we make the step into the IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship for Daytona.”
