TRG topped the time sheets during the final combined GT testing with Andy Lally leading the way in the #67 Rolex Cup car followed closely by Dion von Moltke in the #63 on his first test for the team.
“What a great day for TRG,” team owner Kevin Buckler told GRAND-AM.com “We have four cars and eight drivers, and had a stellar day. It’s great to be back running with GRAND-AM. Dion had some fast laps and did a great job in his first time testing with us. Young guys always know they will be in good equipment when they run with us so they can show their stuff.”
Lally had his first run in the new Porsche 911 GT3 Rolex Cup car and was joined on track with three others from Magnus, Brumos and Muhner Motorsport.
“I thought the transition from last year’s car to the new Porsche was pretty easy,” Lally said. “It’s a similar car. We’ve been concentrating on the new tire and a new shock setup we’ve been playing with. It also gave Steve Bertheau his first laps at Homestead, and we’ve been working with him to get him familiar with the new track and the newe tire.”
Von Moltke was happy with his first session with TRG. “This is the 2009 Porsche with upgrades,” said von Moltke. “TRG is a great team and they’ve proven themselves. It’s nice to drive for Kevin Buckler here. I had several other opportunities today, but I focused on the Porsche to make it fast.”
