David Murry tests Porsche with Mitchum Motorsports at December Grand Am test days in preparation for 2012 Daytona 24 Hour. "Testing went well. We changed to the new larger mandatory Continental tire for the second day and made some suspension changes and calculated what gear ratios we need when we come back in January for the Grand Am test days. Mitchum puts together a solid car and effort", said Murry.
2012 begins the 4th year of "David Murry Track Days". Begining with VIR in 2009, DMTD has continued to grow each year. In 2010 we expanded to 2 dates both at VIR - our original venue, one in the Spring and the other in the Fall. Last year, 2011 continued those dates at VIR and added New Jersey Motorsports Park in the summer. We are pleased to announce our 2012 event schedule with yet another addition to the schedule - Atlanta Motorsports Park, a terrific new track utilizing elevation from the north Georgia rolling hills for a thrilling track layout. Construction of AMP is being finalized over the winter. We are working on more exciting venues and dates and will announce them as they become available.

Winter ALMS testing at Sebring for the 12 hour. Our Ford GT's are fitted with Michelin tires for 2011. We ran some good lap times at the test and have a large list of items that we still need to test. I feel like we will be in the running this year. Anthony Lazzaro will be my co-driver for the season and Rob Bell will again join us for the longer races. Boris Said will be co-driving with the Robertsons. We have also entered both cars at Le Mans and we have been accepted in the #40 car and the #04 car is first alternate. That is great since I can't tell you when the first alternate didn't make the race. The whole team is very excited about this year.
I ran Daytona this year with Dennis Spencers team in a Mazda GT. The guys at Team Spencer worked super hard to get the car prepared in a short time. The car handled well but we had a few electrical gremlins that kept us from showing our potential. We were down a few ponies due to that. Thanks to Dennis and Rich Grupp for making it happen with such a great family of a team. We finished 18th.
