BOWMANVILLE, ONTARIO ( JULY 3, 2002) – Another quick turnaround for IMSA teams looms, Team TGM leaves Canada behind and has its sights set on Lime Rock Park.

The latest round of the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge started well with Hugh Plumb leaping from sixth on the grid to fourth in the opening moments of the race.

But 25 minutes into the race double trouble struck for Plumb and team boss Ted Giovanis. Mechanical issues brought Hugh and Matt Plumb’s race to an early end while Ted Giovanis was forced into fightback mode after on-track contact in turn three.

Giovanis was able to get back on track and return to the pits before continuing. He and teammate Owen Trinkler battled on to the finish in their wounded Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport – crossing the line 15th at the flag.

Next up for Team TGM is Connecticut’s Lime Rock Park – the picturesque “bull ring” which is the shortest circuit on the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge calendar.

Team owner and driver, Ted Giovanis recapped the race, “After a really good qualifying effort for both the #46 and #64, we started the race and looked to be going well but at the 25-minute mark things came unstuck for us. We’re obviously disappointed as we were really enjoying being back at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. It is now time to focus forward and set our sights on Lime Rock Park.”

Ted Giovanis

“I was keyed up on the start, I had a plan of what to do. I think that started to come together and I was getting into rhythm with the guys. Unfortunately, there was an incident in turn 3 which forced me to go off track a little bit. Thankfully the team spotter calmed me. The car was hurt and we were at least a second off our usual lap time because of handling sd the right rear was out of whack.”

 

Owen Trinkler

“I always take positives away, great to come back here to Canadian Tire Motorsports Park, I have good memories of this place. Still a positive day and Ted has now done two great races in a row and I’m really proud of him. I’m proud of where his improvement is going.”

 

Hugh Plumb

“I really felt like we had a great car, a car to be on the podium this weekend. The Team TGM guys have worked hard to get us here and they deserve a better result. We need to figure out what caused our early demise today and remedy that for the future. The team is working so hard and now the turnaround is very quick. Lime Rock has been a good track for us, Team TGM and I have won there in 2018 and 2019 and we know we can repeat.”

Matt Plumb

”Brutal weekend all around, too bad as we had a fast race car. As always TGM crew deserves better.
“I was looking forward to getting in the car as Hugh was doing an awesome job and had us in a good position, but it wasn’t to be.”
