ALTON, VA (October 10, 2021) – For Team TGM, VIRginia International Raceway is a second home track and one filled with past success, however for the ninth round of the 2021 Michelin Pilot Challenge the weekend was a challenging one.

After struggling in qualifying with the Chevrolet Camaro GT4.Rs, the team brought home 11th and 17th place finishes in this last race before the season finale at Road Atlanta next month.  

Team TGM owner/driver Ted Giovanis explains, “We thought it was going to be a good race but it turned out disappointing.  Both cars had pretty good pit stops and got a break on the yellow but we just didn’t have the pace today against the other guys.  

We had a couple errors but Owen, Matt and Hugh all drove great, we just missed on the set up.  We have minimal damage so we just need to turn the page and go onto Road Atlanta.”

The team began the weekend with an off -track excursion in the first practice, causing damage to the #46 but recovered after repairs to run well but not with the pace the team wanted. 

Next up is the rescheduled Petit Le Mans event at Road Atlanta November 10-13.

“The season has been challenging for the team but we were hopeful going into VIR this weekend. We’ve had great success here in the past and we have a lot of experience on this circuit. However, it just didn’t work out for us today. The crew did a great job and we’ll rebound for Road Atlanta.”

“It was a long race but I feel great about the job the team did, I’m very proud of them. We battled adversary all weekend with rain and repairs. I didn’t get into the car until qualifying and we struggled today but as a team we’ll figure it out and come back stronger. It’s a shame that it’s happening at the end of the season but we’re looking forward to Road Atlanta next month.”
