Brumos Racing was an automobile racing team based in Jacksonville, Florida,. The team was established in 1971 by Peter Gregg[1] as a part of the IMSA GT Championship, and is sponsored by Brumos Porsche, which has been an authorized Porsche dealership since 1959. Prior to their entry in Grand-Am, Brumos used Porsche GT cars supplied by the dealership. Until 2011, Brumos used Porsche-powered Daytona Prototypes, but returned to GT in 2011, fielding a Porsche GT3.

It was announced in April of 2013 that the Rolex Sports Car Series race at Road Atlanta would be their last race.[2]

24 Hours of Daytona wins[edit]

Brumos has won the 24 Hours of Daytona four times. In 1973 Peter Gregg and Hurley Haywood with a Porsche Carrera RSR, they repeated in 1975. In 1978 Peter Gregg won by third time with a Porsche 935/77, together to Rolf Stommelen and Toine Hezemans. 31 years later David Donohue, Antonio García, Darren Law and Buddy Rice won the race in a Riley Mk XI, with a Porsche engine in the 2009 24 Hours of Daytona.
