TRG Goes 1-2 Again; Moves into GTC Class Lead with Win at Mosport
BOWMANVILLE, ONTARIO (July 25, 2011) - TRG moved into the GTC class lead by scoring its second one-two finish in a row with another owerful and consistent performance at the Grand Prix of Mosport, the fourth round of American Le Mans Series.
This week, Spencer Pumpelly in the Racer's Roast/Fox River Coffee No. 66 Porsche passed teammate Dion von Moltke on the final lap in his No. 68 PR Newswire/ Team Baltimore Racing/ South African Airways Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car. Two weeks ago at Lime Rock, it was von Moltke who passed Pumpelly on the last lap to create TRG's 1-2 finish there.
"This is fantastic," said team owner Kevin Buckler. "To put back-to-back 1-2 finishes together is a tribute to all four drivers and how hard this very, very dedicated team and crew works."With both cars running strong and near the front most of the day, Pumpelly who was leading at the time, was tapped by GT leader Dirk Werner in his BWM with just a little more than 30 minutes left in the race. Pumpelly fought off the opponent’s punt, which dropped him into fourth, to gradually work his way into second behind von Moltke who was trying to conserve fuel to in order to avoid the fate of Alex Job’s No. 23 car that ran out of gas with less than a minute remaining while pushing von Moltke for the lead.
