MOMO NGT hopes to take Monterey class victory


MOMO NGT Motorsport has already set out its goals for the upcoming Continental Tire Monterey Grand Prix and will hope to continue their TUDOR United SportsCar Championship campaign.

The team took the class victory in the now defunct GTC class in the American Le Mans Series last year and are hoping that their Porsche 911 GT America can take another class victory in the GT Daytona class.

The #30 MOMO NGT machine, driven by Henrique Cisneros and Kuba Giermaziak, will be hoping to salvage  that they can salvage their opening start to the championship after being taken out at Sebring around the three hour mark.

Cisneros said of the upcoming round: It would be great to repeat the win we had last year, but there are a lot more variables to deal with this time around. The field is three times larger and we are battling different manufacturers, so you could say the difficulty has increased. However, we will only be two classes given that the GT and Prototype cars will not race at the same time as us. This will make racing easier for the drivers and the fans so it should be a great show.”

As mentioned by Cisneros, this race has a very unusual format at Monterey there will be two two hour races with the Prototype Challenge and GTD classes facing off in the first race – with the Prototype and GT Le Mans categories racing into the evening.

For Giermaziak, who is glad of the reduced levels of traffic, Laguna Seca will be a brand new experience: “I think this is the track which I was most looking forward to this season. It’s one of my favorite tracks on the computer games I play to prepare for races, and I’m really excited to finally race it in person. For sure the corkscrew is the corner I’m most excited for, and I can’t wait to drive it in our Porsche.”
