The Racer’s Group (TRG) won the 47th annual Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona GT race last weekend on January 25. The GT race resulted in a one-two finish for K1 Speed’s sponsored No. 67 TRG Porsche 997, whose drivers included Justin Marks, Andy Lally, Jorg Bergmeister, Patrick Long and RJ Valentine.

“It is a great way to start the season,” Marks said to TheRacersGroup.com. “I was excited to get started with TRG. I knew going in that we had a shot at winning and I was really enthused after the test. But it really doesn’t sink in until you cross the finish line. This is a great welcome back to sports cars and start the season with Andy and Kevin. I have been lucky enough to win the 250 here twice; this is just on an awesome scale. It is special because I made my Daytona debut with TRG.”

This is team owner Kevin Buckler and Bergmeister’s third win at Daytona. It’s a great accomplishment that TRG had four of their cars finish the 24 hour long race and it’s just icing on the cake that they had a one-two finish. According to Lally, there wasn’t a single dent on the car when crossing the finish line – only dust. Congratulations on the victory, K1 Speed is proud to sponsor a winning team!
