GMG Racing Unleashes Stellar Driving Team For 2012 IMSA GT3 Cup Challenge Series
GMG Racing, the multi-series professional racing team and premier performance tuning facility for European vehicles in Southern California, returns for its sixth season of the IMSA GT3 Cup Challenge with a pair of talented drivers with sights set on taking the 2012 Championship.
GMG Racing’s mainstay for IMSA racing, Brent Holden, returns for his sixth season with the team. Holden, who first connected with Global Motorsports Group (GMG) when he came into the shop to get harness seat belts for his road car and has been a die-hard racer ever since with multiple top 10 finishes, will pilot the No. 44 GMG Racing Porsche GT3 Cup car in the Platinum Class.
“Brent has a great knack for pushing himself and the car at the right times then pulling it back to hold onto his gains,” notes GMG President James Sofronas. Brent will run a limited schedule, making his 2012 debut later in the IMSA GT3 Cup Challenge season.
GMG Racing’s newest and youngest driver, twenty-one year old racing sensation Bryce Miller, will anchor the team with a full schedule behind the wheel of the No. 35 GMG Racing 2012 Porsche GT3 Cup Car. Bryce landed the 2011 Pirelli Drivers Cup National Championship in his rookie year of sports car racing. He stared by winning his first ever IMSA GT3 Challenge race and went on to take the checkered flag in 13 of his 16 races.
“Bryce is truly a natural and is shockingly comfortable behind the wheel for any age, let alone a twenty-one year old rolling into his sophomore year as a sports car racer,” added Sofronas. Bryce grew up racing motorcycles and began racing karts at the age of sixteen before making the jump into sports cars last year.
GMG Racing returns to IMSA racing for a sixth year and brings unsurpassed experience and expertise with Porsche racing and performance across several race series including World Challenge and American LeMans. GMG Racing recently successfully completed the grueling 24 at Daytona and won the 2012 48 Hours at Sebring.
GMG Racing will make its 2012 IMSA debut with Bryce Miller at the IMSA GT3 Cup Challenge Series season opener March 14-17 for the 60th Anniversary running of the Twelve Hours or Sebring. Live timing and coverage of the event will be available at http://www.IMSAchallenge.com.
