Team Hardpoint EBM Ready For Motor City Street Race Debut With Katherine Legge, Rob Ferriol

10.06.2021: Legge is a Two-Time Winner at Detroit; Team Hardpoint EBM’s No. 88 Richard Mille/GridRival Porsche 911 GT3 R the Lone Porsche Representative this Weekend


Legge is a Two-Time Winner at Detroit; Team Hardpoint EBM’s No. 88 Richard Mille/GridRival Porsche 911 GT3 R the Lone Porsche Representative this Weekend

 

Team Hardpoint EBM makes its street course debut this weekend at the Detroit Grand Prix on the public streets of Belle Isle Park in a 100-minute race for the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar GT Daytona (GTD) Sprint Cup Championship. Katherine Legge and Rob Ferriol will co-drive the No. 88 Richard Mille/GridRival Porsche 911 GT3 R for the two-day event, June 11-12.

Saturday’s race will get the green flag at 5:10 p.m. EDT, shown live on NBCSN or via TrackPass on the NBC Sports app. The Detroit Grand Prix also marks the first time since the beginning of the pandemic that the IMSA paddock will be open for fans and spectators.

Ferriol and Legge approach the street race from opposite ends of the experience spectrum. Ferriol makes his street course debut this weekend, both as a driver and team owner.

“I’ve wanted to do a street circuit since I first came to IMSA,” Ferriol said. “They just add a whole other level of excitement to sports car racing – both for the fans and the drivers. Unfortunately, between annual schedule changes and then Covid last year, I kept missing the opportunity. So needless to say, I am absolutely stoked to head to the Motor City this week for my first street race. I’ve prepared as much as I can on the sim but can’t wait to roll out of pit lane and do it live on Friday.”

 

Conversely, Legge is a two-time winner at Detroit, winning in the GTD class in back-to-back years in 2017 and 2018. Her first North American race and win came on a street circuit, when she won the Atlantic Championship race at Long Beach in her U.S. debut in 2005.

“I love street racing,” Legge said. “My first race in the USA was a win at Long Beach in Atlantics, so they hold a special place in my heart. Detroit is its own special bumpy animal, and success here is a combination of a great car, confidence, strategy and luck. Street courses evolve and change slightly year to year and that’s part of the fun. I’m really looking forward to it!”

Points from the Belle Isle race counts in the season-long GTD standings and the IMSA Sprint Cup standings. Team Hardpoint EBM is also the lone Porsche entry in this weekend’s field for the season-long Manufacturer’s Championship.

“Being the lone Porsche on the grid will have its own added pressures,” Ferriol said. “We know the GT3 R has been strong there in the past and we want to represent the brand well. As a driver, I’ll be drinking from the fire hose with the compact schedule, but between Katherine’s experience and success at Detroit, and all the preparation the team has put into this week, I’m confident we’ll be bringing our best to the streets of Belle Isle.”

Team Hardpoint EBM is on track for the first time on the 2.3-mile temporary circuit for an 8 a.m. EDT practice session on Friday, June 11, followed by a second practice at noon and qualifying at 3:30 p.m. EDT later that afternoon. Saturday features just a 10:10 a.m. brief warmup and the 100-minute race at 5:10 p.m. EDT. Qualifying can be seen on IMSA.tv, with the race broadcast on NBCSN and streamed through TrackPass on the NBC Sports app.
