Driver and Sponsor Alan Brynjolfsson and co-driver Trent Hindman are back in action with IMSA at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course for Round 3 of the Michelin Pilot Challenge in the GS Class. Brynjolfsson and Hindman return to IMSA racing after finishing 20th at Sebring International Raceway due to technical issues. Issues resolved and determined to be back out front; the team is set to make Mid-Ohio a Porsche track.
While the Porsche was unable to find the podium in the GS Class last year, Park Place Motorsports current performance may hint that change is in the air. At Sebring International Raceway Trent Hindman turned one of the faster laps of the weekend making the Porsche the fastest Porsche in the series.
Going back to 2018, Brynjolfsson showed expert handling of the 13 turn, 2.4-mile Mid-Ohio course after turning a quick lap that landed him in the top-10 of the weekend time charts. Together, Brynjolfsson and Hindman will aim to take advantage of Mid-Ohio’s sweeping turns and natural terrain to gain on the competition.
Director of Race Operations Mike Johnson has to out-strategize balance of performance while relying on the brains and brawn of his drivers.
“Sebring was not a great event for us, as we ran into a bunch of little issues that kept us at the back of the field,” Johnson said. “Saying that, we will have raced five times in the other series before we even get to Mid-Ohio and hopefully those extra laps will put us back on track. While we have not had the results we want in IMSA this year, we have been strong enough to fight for the championship and that is our ultimate goal.”
The weekend at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course kicks off with a full day of practice taking place Friday, May 3. Qualifying begins the day Saturday, May 4 at 10:05 a.m. EDT with the Mid-Ohio 120 closing out the day and weekend for the Michelin Pilot Challenge. The green flag flies at 1:45 p.m., to watch from green to checkered tune in with IMSA.tv.
