TRG Aim For Baltimore Victory


TRG will field three strong Porsche GT3 teams in a bid for a repeat victory in the GTC class at the Grand Prix of Baltimore.

The team took the glory at the 2012 event with Al Carter and Patrick Pilet, and Carter will hope to be at the top of the pile again as he enters the race alongside Kevin Estre, who was the 2012 vice champion of the Porsche Supercup.

“Myself and the two Kevin’s (Buckler and Estre) have been planning to race this TRG Porsche with this driver lineup since March,” explained Carter. “So, we are all excited and optimistic to race our Porsche through the streets of Baltimore. I can’t say enough about the venue of Baltimore. The crowds are great,the circuit is tough. Just getting to drive here is cool. But after winning the GTC class here last year, Kevin and I are very focused on a repeat.”

Marc Bunting and Norbert Siedler will be hoping to take a TRG Porsche to the top step at Bunting’s home round. Siedler was vice champion in the 2011 Porsche Supercup, as well as having endurance experience in the Nurburgring and Le Mans 24 Hour races.

Finally, the most likely of the three TRG Porsches to take the top step will be the Viper Exchange/Port Lavaca Auto Group machine of Ben Keating and Damien Faulkner. The duo had a frustrating race at Road America, but their practice and qualifying times suggested they could have been much higher at the chequered flag.

“I am really looking forward to this weekend in Baltimore,” said Keating. “I know that we have made huge gains with the Porsche. And I also feel good about the past success of TRG in this event. Damien and I are both on a mission to get to the top of the podium this weekend.”
