Ted Giovanis

“I think I speak for everyone on Team TGM when I say we are ready to get back to racing this weekend at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca. Owen, Hugh and Matt have a lot of experience here and because of testing, I’m confident that I have learned a great deal about the track and how it’s best for me to get around here. We don’t want to put too much into the championship lead at this point but we know that we have to be consistent, work hard and have a bit of racing luck on our side. We’re all enjoying the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4, kudos to Porsche for providing a great race car.”


Owen Trinkler

“It’s only been two races but I think we are all super excited to have Ted and me at the top of the points, even more important we are all driving well and learning these Porsche Clubsports fairly quickly. I love this track and can’t wait to get back out there. Hugh and I have a win here in 2018 and it’s always been a circuit that’s super fun and challenging to race. We know this is a long season and our goal is on the end-game. Finishing on the podium and chipping away at the Championship points.”


Hugh Plumb

“I’m looking forward to getting back to our season. We’ve had a little bit of a break since Sebring and these next couple of rounds are very important as we get in the meat of our season in terms of running for the Championship. I love racing at Laguna Seca and usually do well there, it’s one of my favorite stops on the calendar.”

Matt Plumb

“We were able to do some testing a few weeks ago and put in quite a few miles on both the #46 and #64 cars in preparation for the race. The beauty of our team is that we have two different cars and the ability to work on a set up with each car that’s completely different. Then we usually come together at the end of the test and figure out which one was better and that’s a huge benefit. I think we both figured some things about this track and what this Porsche 718 Cayman likes around this place. I think we’re in a really good spot to show up at the race ready to go.
