Although the TV cameras hardly took notice, the no. 83 BGB / TFR Racing Porsche Carrera driven by Dr. Rod Randall and Ken Wilden pulled off an impressive feat at the previous Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge round at Barber Motorsports Park. Unlapping himself, Wilden racing back to finish in a hard-earned sixth position.

On the same day, Dr. Jim Norman and Spencer Pumpelly took the Rolex Sports Car Series GX class win in the no. 38 BGB / CalciumPro Porsche Cayman, putting Norman and BGB even further into the lead of the Drivers’ Championship and Team Championship.

With their strong finish at Barber, Randall and Wilden are now in fifth position in the GS Drivers’ Championship standings, with BGB Motorsports also occupying the fifth spot in the Team Championship.

“The BGB Motorsport guys never gave up at Barber,” said Randall. “After we went down a lap, Kenny battled back and the team called the right strategy to get our lap back and salvage a great result. This puts us in a great position in the championship and we are all really looking forward to Road Atlanta. It’s a great track that should play well to the strengths of the Porsche and should provide really great racing for the fans.”

The team is looking for another strong day of competition at this weekend’s inaugural GRAND-AM event at Road Atlanta as they rope in a pair of substitute drivers. With Pumpelly competing at this weekend’s American Le Mans Series race in Long Beach, California, his long-time friend Andy Lally will partner with Norman in the CTSCC race while David Donohue will partner with Norman in the Rolex Series race. Lally, a four time Rolex 24 at Daytona winner and three-time Rolex Series champion, is known as one of the best drivers behind the wheel of a Porsche. Donohue co-drove with Norman to the GX class victory at this year’s Rolex 24 at Daytona, and brings to the team a wealth of Porsche and sports car experience.
