Martin Plowman will be testing with BAR1 Motorsports at Daytona International Speedway for the annual Roar Before the Rolex 24. The 27-year old Brit is entered for the #61 BAR1 Motorsports Autosport Design/Southwest Realty Advisors car, along with Americans Marc Drumwright, Cody Ware, and Chapman Ducote. The car will compete in the Prototype Championship (PC) class. Earlier this year, Plowman was promoted from Gold to Platinum status in the FIA driver ratings for 2015.
Plowman and BAR1 were introduced at the Roar Before the Rolex 24 in 2014 when Plowman was pounding the pavement searching for a ride. Owner Brian Alder was intrigued by Plowman’s charity work with Snowball Express, a non-profit whose mission is to bring hope and new memories to children of our fallen military heroes. The two connected and Plowman raced the majority of the 2014 TUDOR United Sports Car Series with the BAR1 Motorsports team.
Plowman is looking to continue the momentum for this upcoming 2015 season.
Martin Plowman: “I’m pretty stoked to get back in the car for the Roar before the 24. Last year BAR1 and I had some strong performances, including a podium at the 6 Hours of Watkins Glen and some that didn’t materialize into the results they deserved. I’m excited about the prospect of helping to continue building this team back into a winning outfit by helping them here at the test.”
