David Murry to Drive for TeamTGM for the 2013 Season
HIGHLAND, MD – TeamTGM announced today that it has added professional driver David Murry to its driver lineup for the 2013 season of GRAND-AM’s Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge Series. The team fields the No. 64 ST class BMW 328i. Murry will co-drive with veteran TeamTGM driver and team owner Ted Giovanis. The team will promote The Jayne Koskinas/Ted Giovanis Foundation for Health and Policy, a privately funded health care foundation which provides honest informed policy analytics in the health care industry.
Murry has claimed numerous championships, successes, and national and international track records in the sport of racing. Throughout Murry’s vast history, he has held long-term relationships as a factory driver with numerous manufactures, such as Porsche, BMW, and Lotus, in a variety of series including IMSA Firestone Firehawk Series, SCCA World Challenge, NASCAR, GRAND-AM, and ALMS. In addition to his professional driving career, Murry has obtained immense recognition for his ability to coach drivers. Murry’s vast experiences, accomplishments, technical expertise, and aptitude for the sport of racing are what give him an edge in the area of driver coaching. Through his development of the David Murry Tracks Days, Murry is able to share his talents with race enthusiasts hoping to up their game on the track at a reasonable cost to the attendee.
The David Murry Track Days fostered the relationship between Murry and Giovanis. Giovanis started attending the David Murry Track Days to get reasonably priced track time, have access to open track in race and non-race cars, and have the ability to drive all different tracks throughout the country. Teaming up Murry and Giovanis for the 2013 season was a natural progression. Giovanis has been developing his skills with the aid of Murry, and the two decided to take on the 2013 season together as co-drivers.
With high hopes for the 2013 season, Murry and Giovanis will take on the campaign of The Jayne Koskinas/Ted Giovanis Foundation for Health and Policy. Most health policy initiatives address effects rather than causes and, accordingly, fail to accomplish their goals. The Foundation takes a different approach; it identifies policy alternatives based on independent and objective analyses of the causes of the problems with our health care policy and delivery system because it has independent funding leading to honest unbiased assessments. Accordingly, the Foundation works to provide an honest and informed perspective for the benefit of all patients served by the health care system.
“We are excited to have David as part of TeamTGM. His extensive history and success in the sport of racing will be a huge asset to the team and will help in the promotion of our Foundation,” said Giovanis. “In addition to being co-driver, David has also been a key player in the re-development of our team, and we are excited for this opportunity to take our team to the next level.”
Please be sure to follow TeamTGM for the 2013 season of the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge Series.
