TPC Racing Ready for Lime Rock ParkAdmin
(May 20, 2014) Jessup, MD – After seeing the top step of the podium just a few weeks ago at Laguna Seca, the TPC Racing team is ready to take on Lime Rock Park for the Memorial Day Weekend to race in rounds five and six of the IMSA GT3 Cup Challenge by Yokohama. The TPC Racing / Merkle / Under Armour team has been hard at work getting the 35 GT3 Cup of Michael Levitas and the 37 GT3 Cup of David Williams ready to fight for the top step of the podium once again.
The Lime Rock Park race weekend will have a shortened schedule, only being on track Friday for two practice sessions and qualifying with both races being on Saturday. With the shortened time, the team has been working hard on chassis setup in order to have a strong car right off of the trailer.
Coming off of a successful race weekend at Laguna Seca, Michael Levitas is excited to get back to Lime Rock Park. 2011 was the last time that Levitas raced at LimeRockPark and he is looking forward to being back there again in the 35 TPC Racing / Merkle / Under Armour entry.
“I am very excited to go back to Lime Rock”, stated Michael Levitas. “We had a great race in the Gold Class a few weeks ago at Laguna Seca and I hope to be on the top step of the podium again. The TPC Racing / Merkle / Under Armour team has been working hard and I think we will have a strong car at Lime Rock. Lime Rock is a tight track and not a ton of room to pass, so with that and the limited track time that we will be getting, I believe we will have a strong car to fight with. I am happy to be back in the Gold Class, and after our race at Laguna, I cannot wait to see how competitive our class will be at Lime Rock.”
David Williams has been doing great this season in the 37 TPC Racing / Merkle / Under Armour GT3 Cup and has been reaching each personal goal that he has made. The TPC Racing team has been hard at work with the 991 chassis and Williams will have a strong car to be competitive at Lime Rock.
“I am looking forward to being back at Lime Roc kPark”, stated David Williams. “I have not been to Lime Rock in a long time, but when I was there last for a PCA Club Race I was on pole my first time out. The TPC Racing team has been doing a great job this season with the 991 GT3 Cup and I think that we will be very competitive at Lime Rock.”
