“We had a really good run at Road America returning to the endurance format. Both the #46 and #64 ran in the top five positions for many laps, with Owen Trinkler leading the race for quite some time. In the end the caution periods just didn’t fall in our favor but that’s part of racing. We came away with a double top-ten finish and both cars in good condition so we were able to turn around and do some testing at VIR a few weeks ago.”

 

Owen Trinkler

“It’s no secret that VIR is my home track and so my favorite race of the season. I always look forward to returning to the track whether to race or coach. The staff at VIR is top notch and the facility is one of the best we visit all year. The 3.27 mile, 17-turn circuit is full of challenges and super fun to drive. I’m hoping for no less than a double podium this weekend for Team TGM.”

 

Hugh Plumb

“Team TGM is coming to VIRginia International Raceway with a lot of good momentum. I think the Michelin Pilot Challenge field has never been so strong. TGM and I have done great things and had a lot of success at VIR and I expect nothing different this weekend.”

Matt Plumb

“We are coming off a solid run at Road America. The finish wasn’t all we had hoped for, but we showed good speed and that the overall focus for Team TGM is always on wins and podium finishes. We’ve had some good finishes at several races this season, but I feel like we are hitting our stride with two races remaining. Switching to a new car this year in the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport, we knew this season would involve a learning curve, but we have the opportunity to finish the year strong, and that’s the goal of the entire team.”
