Precision Performance Motorsports takes on the GTD class.
China Grove, N.C. – December 17, 2018
With their first successful season of sports car racing behind them, Precision Performance Motorsports (PPM) has made the commitment to take the next step up the ladder with Lamborghini Squadra Corse and will campaign a brand-new Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo in the GT Daytona class of IMSA’s WeatherTech Championship. The fresh machinery is slated to run both the Endurance and Sprint Championships.
“We had a really great year in 2018, which, in turn, has garnered a lot of positive attention and interest,” says Team Owner, Rick Gdovic. “Naturally, we have to grow our program with that interest. We felt it best to continue putting our energy, focus, and commitment into racing with Lamborghini. We’ll continue with Super Trofeo, as I feel that is one of the best racing platforms in the paddock and with the strong partnership and support of Lamborghini, we’ll also take the step up to WeatherTech and GTD in 2019.”
PPM has been racing for 16 years, primarily in NASCAR ranks, operating out of their 16,000 sq. ft. shop in China Grove, NC; outside of the racing capital of America, Charlotte, NC. 2018 was the team’s first year contesting sports car racing. Their inaugural sports car campaign included 3 overall pole positions, 1 overall win, multiple podiums in the Pro, Pro-Am, and Am classes of Super Trofeo, a GT3 podium in the SRO Intercontinental GT Challenge, and a track record at Road America.
“We have a great team made up of some very talented people who have shown we can put together a high quality, competitive race program. I have full confidence with Team Manager, Sunny Voelker at the helm that we can do bigger and better things in 2019 with Lamborghini.” finished Gdovic.
PPM’s driver lineups for both WeatherTech GTD and Super Trofeo will be announced shortly. PPM has driving and sponsorship opportunities for both Super Trofeo and GTD races for 2019 available.
The first event for IMSA’s WeatherTech Championship is the illustrious 24 Hours of Daytona, January 26-27, 2019. Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America kicks off at the breathtaking Barber Motorsports Park April 5-7, 2019 .
