Brumos Racing, whose #59 Porsche GT3 finished third in class in the 2012 Grand Am Rolex 24 at Daytona, will be back for 2013 with four Porsche driving stars in the cockpit.

Regular drivers Andrew Davis and Leh Keen will be joined by Porsche factory driver and WEC star Marc Lieb, who was also part of the 2012 team, and ALMS ace Bryan Sellers.

Brumos Racing, whose #59 Porsche GT3 finished third in class in the 2012 Grand Am Rolex 24 at Daytona, will be back for 2013 with four Porsche driving stars in the cockpit.

Regular drivers Andrew Davis and Leh Keen will be joined by Porsche factory driver and WEC star Marc Leib and also Brian Sellers, who has earned success in the American Le Mans Series as well as the Rolex Sports car Series.

Andrew Davis has amassed nine wins five poles, and 26 podiums in his twelve season in Grand Am. Out of twelve Rolex 24 starts, 2012’s third-place finish in the 2012 Rolex is his best to date.

2013 will be Keen’s tenth Rolex 24. In nine seasons in Grand Am he has earned nine wins, nine poles, and 27 podiums. His third-place finish in the 2012 Rolex is also his best.

Marc Lieb was part of Brumos Racing’s podium-wining 2012 effort, his fourth Rolex start and his second third-place finish. He won the GT class in 2004.

The 32-year-old German driver who has been driving for FelberMayr Proton for the past four seasons, has two FIA GT titles, one Le Mans Series championship and one vice-championship. He has plenty of 24-hour experience: besides the four Rolex starts, he has two class wins at Le Mans, four class wins in the Nürburgring 24 and one at the Spa 24, plus six starts in the Rolex 24, with two third-place finishes.

Bryan Sellers has six Rolex starts to his credit, with a best finish of second in 2011 while driving for TRG. For the past four years he has been driving for Team Falken Tires in ALMS, earning two wins in 2011 and one in 2012 in that very competitive GT class.

All four drivers have years of experience driving, and winning in GT Porsches, and make Brumos Porsche a serious contender for the class win at the 2013 Rolex.

The 51st Rolex 24 at Daytona will take the green flag at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26, 2013. Visit Grand-Am.com for ticket information.
