One more Porsche GT3 Cup practice will take place at 1:30 p.m. Ferriol will add to his track time with three practice sessions in the Michelin Pilot Challenge category and qualifying, which will run from 7:35-8:50 p.m. The 15-minute qualifying session for the Porsche GT3 Cup category will take place Saturday morning from 8:00-8:15 a.m.

Rob Ferriol – Driver of the No. 5 Moorespeed/GridRival Porsche GT3 and No. 18 Moorespeed/GridRival Audi R8 LMS GT4


"Coming back to VIR with IMSA is truly the highlight of the season for me, and not just because it's where I first placed four tires on a real race track. It's also where I attended my first IMSA event as a fan. Little did I know at the time, but a few short years later I'd be on the other side of the fence giving the show!


It's such an amazing facility and a fantastic circuit to drive. The icing on the cake is it's so close to home for me, which means I can count on plenty of friends and family there to share the great racing that always goes on at VIR.
 


Splitting time in both cars is going to be tough, no doubt about it. Both physically and mentally. David and John [Horton] have done a fantastic job getting both teams prepped, and that includes streamlining and organizing the weekend as efficiently as possible to keep me dialed in to each car independently.



Spencer will be a huge part of that as well - as someone who's made a career out of weekends like this, and I'll be able to learn a lot from him along the way. From there it's going to really be about staying sharp in the infamous VIR summer heat. Hopefully all that time on the treadmill this year will pay off!"
 



Randal Bryant – Driver of the No. 15 St. Thomas Cycleboats Porsche GT3

"I am looking forward to racing at Virginia International Raceway. Especially since it's my home course with many friends planning to attend. VIR has a tremendous history in motorsports. It is one of the best facilities in the country and extremely challenging with its iconic turns such as the Uphill Esses, Oak Tree, Roller Coaster, and Hog Pin. VIR holds so many good memories for me have, and I hope to make even more this weekend.



 The team has done a great job getting the car ready, and the set up was spot on for practice last week. If I can match the practice times from last week, I should have a good enough qualifying time to compete for a podium spot for the first time this year."
