Ted Giovanis

“This season has definitely been a roller coaster but we started very strong at the only other four-hour race so far this season with a podium finish at Daytona and both cars in the top 10.
“We are looking to repeat that success from January. All four of us drivers have a lot of experience at this course. In addition to the IMSA series which is here annually, I’ve raced here in other series and I’m very confident at the track.”

 

Owen Trinkler

“The guys have been under a lot of pressure to turn around a couple of damaged cars from Lime Rock in less than two weeks. They’re awesome and both cars are ready to go on Thursday for practice. It’s supposed to be in the high 80s for the race, so the heat is an additional element with the long race.”

 

Hugh Plumb

“Stepping up to a four-hour race, at Road America in a Porsche is going to be a great weekend. TGM certainly have all the right pieces in place for sure. Our sport is a game of inches, literally, we have not been on the right side of the measuring stick as of late. We’ll continue to stay positive and do what we know how to do – that is our plan to work towards having a good result.”

Matt Plumb

“We’ve put Lime Rock behind us. Going from the shortest circuit on the schedule two weeks ago, to the longest offers different opportunities and challenges. While Road America is long and wide, it’s also very fast and your concentration has to stay focused all the time. The longer format coming up this weekend should compliment our crew and their ability to get stops and strategy right.”
