MOMO NGT Motorsport Team Analysis Report for Rolex 24 at Daytona Retirement

MOMO NGT Motorsport Team Analysis Report for Rolex 24 at Daytona Retirement

23.02.2013: Following an in-depth analysis of all the parts involved in the retirement of the No. 30 MOMO NGT




Following an in-depth analysis of all the parts involved in the retirement of the No. 30 MOMO NGT Motorsport Porsche GT3 from the 2013 Rolex 24 at Daytona race, Team Manager and NGT Motorsport owner, Ramez Wahab, reported that a brake rotor exploded, causing the suspension failure while leading the GT class prior to the 19-hour mark.
 

“We had such a strong run going with a chance to win at the 24 Hours of Daytona,” said Wahab, based in Miami, Florida. “We had consistently been in the Top Five or even the Top Three most of the race and had led many laps. It was such a disappointment to be out of the race after such an extraordinary effort by all the drivers and crew.


Now we know the cause for Kuba’s (Giermaziak) 180-mile per hour left front suspension failure was the brake rotor explosion. We were using the same aftermarket rotors that we have had success with in the past with no problems, so it was a big surprise for us.
 

“I am so proud of my team for the amazing effort everyone made to give us such a strong charge at Daytona. It was an exceptional effort for a privateer team,” added Wahab.
 

“I wish to congratulate Ramez Wahab and the MOMO NGT Motorsport team on their outstanding performance in the 2013 24 Hours of Daytona,” said Jens Walther, President and CEO Porsche Motorsport. “The entire team did a fantastic job, not only in the preparation for the race, but the entire event.


Unfortunately, the result was not what they were expecting or we were hoping. Nevertheless, the team successfully withstood the strong factory effort of Audi and Ferrari for a large part of the race. This is a great testimony to the professionalism and the quality of the team.”
 

Drivers Henrique Cisneros, Sean Edwards, Kuba Giermaziak and Patrick Pilet piloted the No. 30 MOMO NGT Motorsports Porsche GT3 at this year’s Rolex 24 running.
