LAKEVILLE, CT (May 31, 2021) – As a U.S. veteran himself Memorial Day is extra special to Team TGM owner/driver, Ted Giovanis and today he celebrated at historic Lime Rock Park by standing on the podium for all three International GT races.

Starting the day by winning the first sprint race in the 4-liter category, the reigning Mission Foods GT3 Cup Champion, went on to take the overall win in the mid-day enduro which he shared with co-driver Hugh Plumb.

Giovanis finished the long day fighting the renowned “bullring” – the 1.478 mile Lime Rock circuit, with a second in the afternoon sprint.

Forced to miss the third round of the International GT championship at Road America two weeks ago due to a conflict with the IMSA race at Mid-Ohio where he drives one of two Team TGM Chevy Camaros in the Michelin Pilot Challenge, Giovanis leaped from 16th in the IGT championship points standings to take over second place.

Team TGM will return to IMSA competition with back-to-back races at Watkins Glen International on June 24-26 and July 1-2.

“We came here trying to score some points and I think we accomplished that. We had a P1 in the first sprint race which I was actually a bit surprised by.
“Then I did even better in the enduro when Hugh and I were there together, so that was really good. If there was a disappointment it was that we got P2 in the second sprint this afternoon.
“But in the winning 4-liter car they switched drivers on us, putting in the owner’s son to drive. Other than that it worked out to be a great day.
“A P1 and P2 in the sprints and P1 overall in the enduro, it doesn’t get much better than that and I think we did really well in picking up points.”
