GAM and TRG to raise money for children

Boston, Mass., -- Guardian Angel Motorsports (GAM) and TRG have GAM wings joined forces with Children's Hospital Boston to combine the exciting world of motorsports with the drive to raise money to help children of the greater Boston area. With the Grand-Am Rolex Series 24 Hours at Daytona race just than 90 days away GAM and TRG will field the No. 68 TRG/GAM Porsche 911 GT3 for the twice around clock event to be run January 24 - 25 at the Daytona International Speedway.

GAM's team principals Bruce Ledoux and Dave Quinlan along with their two co-drivers Dan Watkins and Steve Zadig are long time motorsports competitors who will be focused on driving as many laps as possible in their effort to support the Children's Hospital Boston.

"It has been a very personal ride for me," says Bruce Ledoux. "My five year old son has been under the care of Children's Hospital Boston since birth. He has global developmental delays due to a chromosomal abnormality. We have seen many doctors and have been through many departments from endocrinology, genetics, metabolism, allergy and immunology, dentistry and radiology. Children's Hospital Boston really works together as a team, they have become my son's pit crew."

Children's Hospital Boston is a 397-bed comprehensive center for pediatric health care. As one of the largest pediatric medical centers in the United States, Children's offers a complete range of health care services for children from birth through 21 years of age. Children's records approximately 22,600 inpatient admissions each year, and the 204 specialized clinical programs care for more than 527,500 patients annually. Additionally, the hospital performs 23,000 surgical procedures and 170,000 radiological examinations every year.

To support GAM in their partnership with Children's Hospital Boston as they embark on a mission to raise money which will allow the hospital to provide specialized care to more children as well as continue their groundbreaking research that changes children's lives.

"We believe all children need a Guardian Angel so we are racing the Rolex 24 hour in January in that vein," says Bruce Ledoux.

Guardian Angel is teaming with TRG, one of the most successful teams in all of sportscar racing. Kevin Buckler, a Rolex 24 Hour overall winner and TRG owner, knows the reach and value that motorsports can deliver.

"Racing is fun and competitive," Buckler said. "Using the allure of motorsport and the media coverage from the Rolex to help the serious needs of children is something that we are proud to be a part of with our team. Bruce and Dave are focused on gathering as many donations as possible and we will be supporting their effort by providing the best prepared and presented Porsche on the track."

The Rolex 24 Hour at Daytona will be televised on FOX and SPEED Channel.

TRG was founded in 1993 and has been competing at the top level of sports car racing ever since. The team has the most wins of any team in the Grand-Am Rolex Series with 23, including the 2005 and 2006 Rolex Series GT championship trophy to go along with wins at the Rolex 24 at Daytona and the 24 Hours or Le Mans.
