LAKEVILLE, CT (Thursday, July 14 , 2022) – The “Bullring” of the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge championship awaits Team TGM this week as the championship heads to the picturesque Lime Rock Park.

At 1.5 miles, the track is the shortest on the schedule but features a number of flowing, high-speed corners, which should suit the team’s Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport machines.

The team is looking to bounce back after a mechanical failure and contact curtailed their efforts at the last round at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.

The team enters the weekend with confidence, however – Lime Rock Park is the scene of two of Team TGM’s series victories. Owen Trinkler and Hugh Plumb claimed victory here in 2018 and 2019 – back-to-back success.

Saturday’s two-hour race can be seen live on Peacock TV.

WHAT: Lime Rock Park – 7th round of the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge.

Ted Giovanis

“Team TGM has had a lot of success at Lime Rock Park and all four of our drivers enjoy racing this circuit.  It’s one of the fastest tracks we race, with only one tight left-hand corner, and it’s less than 1.5 miles.  
“After a strong start to the season, we’ve struggled somewhat lately with mechanical issues or simply being on the wrong side of aggressive drivers.  It’s time to turn our season around and with our good past success at Lime Rock – this is a great place to start.”

 

Owen Trinkler

“The Lime Rock bullring circuit is one of my favorite tracks for all its technical challenges. Team TGM won back to back here in 2018 and 2019 – it was key to our Championship win.
“The track is the shortest we race at by a substantial margin so it’s important to stay with the field and try not to lose any laps as it’s difficult to get those back. I’ve heard the crowd might be the best in a few years, which is great!.”

 

Hugh Plumb

“This is a great place for us to turn the season around after a challenging couple of weekends. Owen and I won here in 2018 and ’19 and we’d love to get the Team TGM cars back to victory lane again.
“I always look forward to racing here. I’ve done a million laps around this place and it always is a joy to come back and race here again – I can’t wait.”

Matt Plumb

“Lime Rock Park is home to me in many ways. I started racing here and launched my career. It’s been a great place to race over the years, where I’ve had lots of success, and I look forward to coming back every year.  
“The fans are so enthusiastic at this circuit, and because it’s so small we can hear and see the crowd. Qualifying and the starting position are key at Lime Rock Park.”
