China Grove, N.C. -( June 27, 2018)-Team is roaring into historic Watkins Glen on the heels of impressive debut in Super Trofeo.
Precision Performance Motorsports is primed to keep momentum from their debut outing at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. A performance that saw an 83% podium rate, across three classes and two races. PPM currently sits 2nd in the team Championship, with PROs Brandon Gdovic and Shinya Michimi 2nd in the PRO category. The #47 of Patrick Liddy is holding 1st in the PRO-AM Championship by a single point; with the #67 of Shea Holbrook and Martin Barkey in a tight 3rd in the very competitive AM category.
Despite little testing and time in the car prior to Mid-Ohio, Shinya Michimi picked up right where he left off in 2016, where he claimed the Super Trofeo North America PRO Championship. Lamborghini Young Factory Driver Brandon Gdovic, has continued to show his speed and racing prowess at the season opener; throwing in some circle track aggression, carving his way to an eventual 2nd place in Race 1.
IMSA-newcomer Patrick Liddy and the Car #47 team were able to rebound from a crash earlier in the weekend and claim the maiden victory in 2018 for the PRO-AM class. Partick is holding the lead in the PRO-AM category, and will be joined by Indy500 driver Pippa Mann at Watkins Glen
PPM’s AM class entry of Shea Holbrook and Martin Barkey exceeded expectations in the #67 powered by Bubba Burger. They were able to take home trophies and points in their first race weekend, having never co-driving together, and neither driver running the Huracan Super Trofeo at Mid-Ohio; and did so despite a meaty and competitive AM class.
