Team TGM will restart its Michelin Pilot Challenge program next year for an intended two-car, full-season campaign with its Chevrolet Camaro GT4.Rs.

The Florida-based team pulled out of Pilot Challenge competition in July due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Team principal Ted Giovanis will be rejoined by 2018 series champion Owen Trinkler in the No. 64 Camaro, with brothers Hugh and Matt Plumb teaming up in the No. 46 entry

“We’re returning to professional competition very enthusiastic about the 2021 season, our relationship with Chevrolet and having used the time away to better understand the Camaro GT4.R race cars,” said Giovanis.

“I’ve been impressed with the procedures and safeguards that IMSA has put into place at events and their commitment to a healthy and successful return to motorsport competition.

“The entire Team TGM organization is more than ready to return to the track. We’re looking forward to a run for another IMSA Championship in 2021.”

Trinkler added: “Our goals for the new year are a repeat of the success of the 2018 season and we know that is all about getting consistent finishes and earning points every race.

“Ted has been racing and winning in other series and getting lots of track time this year. We are confident that we can contend for podium finishes every race.

“The team is ready to start racing again and I’m happy to have the opportunity to race the full season partnered with Ted, in the Chevy Camaro, with the knowledge and support of the best team in the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge paddock.”
