SEBRING, GA (Wednesday, March 16, 2022) – For Hugh Plumb, what was turning into a front-row qualifying performance ended quickly when he experienced a cut-down tire on-course ending his qualifying run today at Sebring International Raceway.

Plumb and Team TGM hit the track today for practice and qualifying for round two of the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge at the historic Florida circuit.

Despite the tire drama, Plumb was able to post the 6th fastest time before the incident, which will give him an outside third row start for tomorrow’s Alan Jay Automotive Network 120.

The #64 car in the hands of team owner/driver Ted Giovanis was on a different strategy.

With rain showers during the morning practice limiting run time, Giovanis jumped into the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport for the first time in the event for the qualifying session.

With the goal of simply posting a qualifying lap, Giovanis will start the race near the back of the field, but with a second-place finish at Daytona, the team is confident of the #64’s ability to march through the field.

The Alan Jay Automotive Network 120 is scheduled for 4:20 pm ET Thursday, March 17, with the race live-streamed on Peacock.TV.

“I was in the car for the first time for qualifying, so really, our focus was to post a qualifying time and get me some track time.
“Given the rain in the morning, this was more of a practice session for us, and I think we garnered some valuable information in the session. We had a great run at Daytona, and I’m confident Owen (Trinkler) and I will be able to move forward tomorrow.”

 

Hugh Plumb

“A bit of an up and down day today for TMG with a rainy session this morning. It would have helped if it had rained this afternoon, but we ended up with a top six.
“I don’t like to be P6 because the team works so hard to give Matt (Plumb) and me a great car. But we did get a lap in, and we will have a good car for tomorrow and have a great day. “
