Managing Traffic With TRG

This video gives you an idea of what its like to race in the American Le Mans Series, with multiple classes of varying speeds, from a GTC class perspective.
TRG driver Duncan Ende does a fantastic job driving his No. 68 TRG Porsche 911 GTC entrant, in the opening laps of the 10 hour Petit Le Mans race at Road Atlanta. Here he maintains speed, advances his position and allows the much faster LMP cars by with minimal interruption. Witness the staggering speed differences these drivers have to work into their strategy throughout this endurance event. The Lotus, Porsche and Aston Martin are all members of the GT class, which is also a faster class.

Another Solid Season Comes To An End At Petit Le Mans

While TRG’s quest for its American Le Mans Series championship fell short with third and fourth place finishes at the season finale at Road Atlanta’s Petit Le Mans, team owner Kevin Buckler couldn’t help but look back at the season and call it one of the most memorable and successful in TRG’s history.

“While things didn’t quite work out here the way we had hoped,” said Buckler, “we had some amazing wins, comebacks, podiums and some just fantastic racing.  During the middle of the season when we reeled off three straight wins including two one-two finishes, well, that was pretty special.  I can’t tell you how proud I am of all our drivers and crew.  We truly have laid the groundwork to build upon for next season where we will again be in position to make a very serious run at a championship – because after all, that’s what TRG is all about, winning on all fronts.”

TRG Returns to Atlanta as Defending Petit Le Mans Champions

Braselton, GA (September 27th, 2011) - Coming off of a victorious outing at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, TRG returns to Road Atlanta for the season finale, hoping to add another page to the team's growing history book. Currently seven points shy of the American Le Mans Series GTC class championship, TRG needs another strong finish and some good fortune in order to overtake Black Swan Racing and claim a championship in the Series' final event.

The 14th annual Petit Le Mans is a 1,000 mile/10-hour endurance race (which comes first). Joining American Le Mans Series regulars this weekend will be 26 teams from around the world competing in the International Le Mans Cup (ILMC), creating an expected starting grid of 53 cars. 

TRG's No. 68 PR Newswire/South African Airways/Parathyroid.com/ViperExchange.com Porsche 911 GT3 Cup will be driven by GTC regular Dion von Moltke. Joining professional driver von Moltke, will be former Dodge Viper champion and Daytona 24 Driver Ben Keating, alongside IMSA GT3 Cup regular and leading parathyroid surgeon, Dr. Jim Norman. Norman returns to the Series, having competed with TRG at Sebring and finishing fourth in class.

"I'm really proud of the season we have had thus far in ALMS," says von Moltke. "The team has worked so hard this year and I hope we can bring home a solid result for all the guys. Sharing the car with guys like Ben and Jim will make that goal that much easier."
