GMG was thankfully able to make it to the Long Beach race weekend with two of their PWC Porsche 911 GT3 Rs thanks to back-ups and help from others in the community, and shop owner James Sofronas was even able to claim GTA class pole position in his Porsche, but they’re still baffled as to why someone would steal their parts from their headquarters.
Only about six other McLaren 570S GT4s exist in the United States, GMG Media Director Joe Foster told CBS Los Angeles, so very few could even use the parts in question that were taken from that car. In other words, these are perhaps the dumbest thieves alive for stealing a load of highly custom, high-profile racing parts.
Worst of all, Sofronas told KABC that the team had just held an open house the day before the break-in—leaving them paranoid as to whether a guest was responsible.
If you have any information as to the identity of the scumbags who stole GMG’s stuff, or the whereabouts of their parts, please contact the Orange County Crime Stoppers at (855) TIP-OCCS.
