David Murry (Atlanta, Georgia) is a name well known to Porsche fans around the world. A veteran driver, Murry has been tabbed by owners to create super teams with some of the top pilots in the sport throughout his career. At this year’s IMSA Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge (CTSCC) season-opening round at Daytona International Speedway, Murry will be teamed with a rookie, one he has been waiting 17 years to race with, his son Dylan.
The two will share the BGB Motorsports Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport MR with Jim Cox (Nokomis, Florida) and is one of four mid-engine Porsches entered in the four-hour BMW Endurance Challenge.
The elder Murry, who raced for the Porsche factory at Le Mans, has never raced with his 17-year-old son as a co-driver. Dylan began racing at the age of nine in karts and then Legends cars before moving up late model stock cars. In 2017, he finished sixth in his NASCAR K&N debut at Greenville, South Carolina and was the top finishing rookie. In addition, he won his 12th career championship (Pro-Legends Winter Series) and received “President’s Award” from Atlanta Motor Speedway this year.
David Murry has 13-starts in the Rolex 24 At Daytona with a third-place finish in 2003. Those came in a career that has spanned 65 GRAND AM races including four wins and 82 American Le Mans Series races, where he has one victory. He has started at Le Mans four times with his first race coming behind the wheel of the Porsche works team’s LMP1-98. In addition, he has a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup start and three ARCA stock car starts in his career. Today, his primary focus is the David Murry Track Days and David Murry Seminars programs for aspiring racers.
The Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport MR is the German marque’s official entry into the international GT4-specififactions and, beginning in 2018, the sole Porsche entry allowed into the CTSCC GS class. The car won the 2017 class Championship with Dylan Murcott and Dillon Machavern driving the No. 28 for RS1. The car is based on the Porsche Cayman GT4 road car and shares over 80 percent of its parts with that street-going machine.
