WEST PALM BEACH, Florida – Bruce Kovach made his fortune in textiles and has lately embarked on a new adventure: IMSA Endurance driver. After purchasing a Lamborghini GT3 car after 2/3rds of a Super Trofeo Season, Kovach announced today a full foray into the IMSA Weathertech Championship. Ex-Indycar driver Matt Spegge has been pegged to co-drive the entry. At a recent test at Palm Beach International, Mr. Kovach completed laps up to just 15 seconds slower than Spegge, showing encouraging progress during the 5-day test.
“Well Bruce has improved mightily,” Remarked Spegge with cartoon dollar signs for eyes, “Its truly an honor and a privileged to collect a che- I mean share a car with him”
Kovach made several starts in Super Trofeo’s North American series last year with a best finish of “DNF – Handling”
