Team TGM confirm a TF Sport - Aston Martin Racing partnership in time for the 2023 Rolex 24 from Daytona

Wednesday, November 16, 2022


After the Aston Martin Racing powered news from the ACO rules aspect of sportscar racing yesterday has this evening seen similar fine news being laid out, this time with another new team joining the AMR family from within the IMSA ruleset.

Confirmed by the Braselton based team only this evening sees the American Team TGM squad enter the 2023 Rolex 24 from Daytona with a TF Sport prepared Aston Martin Racing Vantage that will compete within that series GTD class.

Not a partnership that would immediately come to mind, it again appears to be the studious work of Ben Bourdaire and his team at AMR that guided the Ted Giovanis led squad that way since TGM debuted within the opening round of the IMSA Weathertech Sportscar Championship this year and wanted better from it next time around and having seen Tom Ferrier’s outfit had already (and successfully) introduced the Vantage platform to their new World Endurance Championship GTE Am Driver Champion Ben Keating at Florida circuit only the year before.

“The opportunity made sense for our team on many levels and gave us the best chance to build on our 2022 Rolex 24 finish.

“TF Sport has extensive experience and success racing in Europe and our congratulations go to them for capturing the 2022 WEC Championship last weekend in the GTE Am category. However, they also have experience at the Rolex 24 and after much thought and due diligence, we felt that TF Sport and Aston Martin gave us the best opportunity for a podium finish in 2023.

“Although the Aston Martin is new to Team TGM, it’s obviously a car that has been very well developed and had much success in sportscar racing. TF Sport has been at the forefront of the race success with Aston Martin, and we couldn’t be more pleased to have them join us for the Rolex 2” he said upon release of this news.

Team TGM will once again pair Ted Giovanis with co-drivers Owen Trinkler, Hugh Plumb, and Matt Plumb for the Rolex 24 event. Giovanis continued, “These past couple of years, the four of us have really melded together for the 24-hour race, and our different driving styles have worked very well for strategy and driving stints.”

The IMSA Rolex 24 at Daytona is scheduled for January 28-29, 2023.

Well done to all those associated with this deal and it will hopefully make for a near handful of Aston Martin’s competing at this epic year opener.
