BRASELTON, GA (July 13, 2021) – IMSA’s return to Lime Rock Park after the 2020 hiatus is a welcome addition to the calendar, especially for Team TGM, having won the race at the two previous events in 2018 and 2019.

Lime Rock Park is a hard place not to like either as a spectator or driver. From the rolling grassy spectator hills to the tight corners that make up the 1.47-mile bullring course, there is something for everyone tucked away in the Berkshire Mountain foothills of northeast Connecticut.

For Team TGM the circuit is the location of much success.

“We are back-to-back race winners here with IMSA in 2018 and 2019, so it’s certainly one of our favorite tracks,” said Team TGM owner and driver Ted Giovanis #64 which he co-drives with Owen Trinkler.

“We were here about six weeks ago in our Porsche and were very successful. We swept all three race wins on the weekend at Lime Rock in the International GT series and we’re excited to be back after our podium finish for Hugh and Matt at Watkins Glen.

“This is our first season with the Chevy Camaro GT4.R, and we’re continuing to learn how the cars perform on each track. We’ve also changed our driver line-up since our last IMSA race at Lime Rock. Owen and I have joined forces, while Hugh is now co-driving with his brother Matt Plumb.”

The IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge will take to the track for the first practice on Friday, July 16 at 10:05 am with GS qualifying scheduled for 4:40 pm Friday afternoon. The race will be held Saturday, July 17 with the green flag dropping at 11:05 am. All practice and qualifying sessions will be broadcast on IMSA radio. The Lime Rock Park 120 race will be live on NBCSN TrackPass.

“Lime Rock is a circuit we know well and have had a lot of success. But the Camaros are new to us on this track so there will be some learning curve in terms of setup and performance. Owen was in the winning car the past two IMSA races at Lime Rock, so we think we have a really good chance of a podium finish this weekend in both cars.”

Owen Trinkler

“Our record at Lime Rock makes it a special place for everyone on the team and we’re all looking forward to getting back there.
Of course we’re coming with a new car in the Chevy Camaro GT4.R and a slightly different driver line up then we had in 2019 but we think these have made us stronger as a team. We all have so much experience at this place, we can’t wait to get out there again.”

Hugh Plumb

“Love Lime Rock. I have a lot of history here and it’s also a track that’s been very good to me, including two wins in our last two visits with IMSA. We have some momentum having just been on the podium at Watkins Glen. Team TGM knows how to win races anywhere so I’d like to make it three in a row at Lime Rock.”


Matt Plumb

“Lime Rock is so special to me, it is where my love for auto racing started when Hugh and I attended the Skip Barber Racing School many years ago. I have been fortunate to win many races and clinch championships there and feel like I am coming home every time I drive in the gate!”
