Long Back With Park Place


Park Place Motorsports has rekindled its original driver pairing of Porsche factory driver Patrick Long and team principal Patrick Lindsey for the 2019 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season.

The duo shared a Park Place-entered car in the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series during the team’s debut season in 2013, finishing second three times and landing fifth in the championship.

After a partial season in 2018, the Dallas-based team will contest the full calendar with the updated Porsche 911 GT3 R.

“We’re growing as a team and we have the full support of Porsche Motorsport North America to chase a championship,” Lindsey said. We’re pursuing a lot this year.

“However, I do believe that we’ve never been in a better position to make the leaps we will make this year and to do them with great success. Maybe we won’t make them without setbacks or issues, but we will have success this year. Everyone on the team feels that.”

The Roar Before the Rolex 24 on Jan 4–6 will mark Park Place’s first outing of 2019.
