WATKINS GLEN, NY (Friday, June 24, 2022) – Team TGM pulled a surprise on team owner Ted Giovanis today as the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge veteran prepared to celebrate his 100th race start in the series.

Friday afternoon at the team’s hauler Giovanis returned to find his team adorned with celebratory shirts, a 100th race banner hanging from the liftgate, and stickers on hand to give to the fans.

Giovanis made his debut in the series in 2013 at Daytona International Speedway. Fast forward to 2022 and Giovanis is still running strong – scoring a podium at Daytona this year aboard the team’s new Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport.

For Saturday’s Tiago Downs Casino Resort 120, Giovanis will again pair with Owen Trinkler aboard the team’s No.64 entry.

Hugh Plumb – who will start in the 5th row after Friday’s qualifying – will continue his partnership with his brother Matt Plumb in the No.46 Porsche.

“Even though I greatly appreciate all the team did for me today to celebrate my 100th IMSA race, it’s business as usual because we need to focus on stats, set up, and top speeds. I’ll go into this race, do the best I can, keep the car clean and then hand it over to Owen. I’m getting back into the swing of things and I think we will be fine tomorrow. There were some handling issues this morning but the team went to work on it and it seems great this afternoon. Now I just need to focus on certain corners and continue to put n the best laps possible.”

“So we posted a top ten qualifying position. I don’t think TGM is a top 10 team. TGM is just a top 3-4 team but we are trying to wrap our heads around this Porsche, and even though we did well among the Porsches, I’m super satisfied with the car – you could not ask for a better car. I feel bad for the TGM guys who have worked their tails off and we can do better for them. Tomorrow is a new day and we will get it done.”
