Team TGM will retain its 2021 driver pairings for next year’s IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge season when the GS outfit switches from Chevrolet to Porsche machinery.

Hugh Plumb and Matt Plumb are set to share the wheel of the No. 46 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport, while Owen Trinkler and Ted Giovanis will team up in the No. 64.

Those same lineups contested this year’s Pilot Challenge season when TGM fielded a pair of Chevrolet Camaro GT4.Rs and also merged for a Rolex 24 at Daytona attempt in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship with a Porsche 911 GT3 R.

Hugh and Matt Plumb finished ninth in the Pilot Challenge GS standings and achieved their best race result of third place at Watkins Glen.

“There really wasn’t any question in my mind,” said Giovanis following the retention of TGM’s 2021 crews.

“We have gelled into a tight-knit group both on and off the track.

“The way that the four of us work together for the best results possible is irreplaceable. It’s a team, both drivers and crew, that has a common focus and drive for success.

“All four of us have a long history driving Porsches, so it makes sense to have us together in the team’s new Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsports for the 2022 season. There is a lot of experience among us, and that should really help get us up to speed quickly.”
