The inagrual Baltimore Grand-Prix turned out to be an eventful weekend for the entire TRG crew. The weekend got off to a late start as the organizers struggled to tie loose ends around the completely new, temporary street circuit. In turn, the drivers were required to adapt to the new track in only two shortened practice sessions. In the closing laps of the first session, Duncan Ende, in the No. 66 Racer's Roast/Fox River Coffee/Marriott Porsche, was caught out by one of the circuit's high speed, mid-corner bumps and made contact with the barriers causing significant damage to the left rear. Meanwhile, local driver Marc Bunting and his co-driver, Dion von Moltke, were adapting nicely to the dynamic circuit in the No. 68 Team Baltimore Racing/South African Airways/PR Newswire 911.
