Bergmeister Aims For Fourth Rolex 24 Victory With Park Place Motorsports IMSA

Joerg Bergmeister will be with a new team in 2016, driving the No. 73 Park Place Motorsports/Jet Edge Porsche GT3 R with Patrick Lindsey. They will be joined in the Rolex 24 by Matthew McMurry.

 

“Our focus so far is to give Matt some time in the car during the Roar, and then I’ll get in more track time during the race weekend,” said Bergmeister, a three-time class winner in the Rolex 24 – including the overall victory in 2003. “It would be nice to go home to Germany with another Rolex on the wrist – that’s definitely the goal – but there’s a lot of competition with good lineups in GTD, with a lot of new combinations. It’s definitely going to be exciting. I’m looking forward to running the full series. It’s a great series with great racetracks, and it’s always fun to race over here.”
