MOMO NGT Motorsport consistently run in the Top 5 of the 29-car GTD field.

After 12 eventful hours in the 52nd Annual Rolex 24 At Daytona, MOMO NGT Motorsport has managed to take over the GT Daytona (GTD) class lead multiple times, and has consistently run in the Top 5 of the 29-car GTD field.

Porsche ace Nicki Thiim drove a double stint starting around the six-hour mark of the Daytona enduro, then turned the No. 30 MOMO NGT Motorsport Porsche 911 GT America over to fellow Danish driver Christina Nielsen. With double stints being the standard for the MOMO drivers during this event, Nielsen also drove double duty, and was up to P5 before a full course caution occurred. Nielsen later handed the Porsche to Kuba Giermaziak, who again took the car to the top of the charts in the GTD class.

Kuba Giermaziak, No. 30 MOMO NGT Motorsport driver:
"We are back in the lead. We have a little problem because we lost an aerodynamic part, which slows us down by two or three tenths, but at the end of the day, it's not that important. The most important is that we stay out of trouble and at the moment we are looking good. Looks like the Ferrari and the Audis, if they don't have any problems, will be faster at the end. They are definitely faster, but it is what it is. There's still around halfway to go. If we manage to survive to the last two or three hours without a problem, then we can't complain about the speed of the others. At the moment, we are doing just fine."

Nicki Thiim, No. 30 MOMO NGT Motorsport driver:
"I had a really good last stint. The first stint, I really just had to get up to speed because I hadn't had much track time. It worked out fine, because I think we were P1 in the class, but there's still a long way to go and we have to really take care of the car. I'm hoping we will be in a battle for the win at the end."
