MOMO NGT Motorsport racing team has announced it will compete full time in the new IMSA TUDOR United SportsCar Championship for 2014.

The team’s familiar #30 MOMO liviery will adorn a new 2014 Porsche 911 GT America, competing in the new GT Daytona class. Co-owner Henrique Cisneros sharing driving duties with 23-year-old Kuba Giermaziak for the full eleven race season. The duo will be joined by Christina Nielsen at the Daytona 24 Hours, along with a yet to be named fourth driver.

“The team is very excited to enter the new GTD class,” said Cisneros. “It will be fun to compete against so many brands after racing exclusively with Porsches for four years. I think the balance of power will be a big challenge for IMSA and it will take the entire season to sort out.

“Daytona will have the usual sandbagging that everyone is used to and we really won’t know how the competition stacks up until the last two hours. We will also be developing the new Porsche 991 and using live telemetry for the first time so it will be a challenge to understand the data during the beginning of the season.”

“It’s absolutely an amazing feeling to be part of this team,” added Giermaziak. “I would already like to jump in the car. I always dreamed about driving in USA and this year it became possible. On the other hand it’s going be a very tough season, as I’m filling Sean’s (Edwards) seat to be Henrique’s teammate, so the expectations to match are very high.”
