Following 2 days of promising Daytona testing, Dr. Rod Randall of Tampa Bay, FL and Ken Wilden of Toronto, ON, Canada are feeling very confident about their 2013 Porsche 997 program with BGB Motorsports; the Porsche outfit from Ormond Beach, FL will prepare last year’s Championship winning Porsche 997 Carrera GTS for former Ford Mustang pilots and friends, Randall and Wilden.
John Tecce added: “We are very fortunate to have landed Rod, who wanted to run with Kenny in an attempt to repeat a Driver’s Championship effort for 2013. Ken is always fast in everything he drives and we have raced for years against him. He is definitely one of the driver’s that makes me nervous when he’s gassed up and ready to go to the end of the race, as he can threaten the win. It has been a pleasure thus far working with Rod and his son DJ who will be in the Rebel Rock Porsche at Daytona. We have had a few test days together now and we are all gelling very well. I think we’re going to be very competitive.”
Rod Randall is looking forward to being able to marry his love of Porsches and his racing of them on the track, something that has eluded him for some time, until now:
“I have always been a Porsche guy and we are both liking the way the Porsche handles and brakes. This year will be a lot of fun and I think we will be very competitive.”
Ken Wilden had more to add: “I'm very excited for the 2013 season, BGB is a great team as was seen in 2012 and I look forward to the challenge of completing a back to back team championship effort. To be back with Rod again is fantastic, as we work really well together and team manager John has been very easy to work with. We have all the right ingredients for a great season.”
