Pumpelly Scores First Win at VIR

ALTON, Va. (Aug. 24, 2015) – Spencer Pumpelly, a Virginia native, finally scored his first career win at VIRginia International Raceway. Pumpelly was victorious in Saturday’s Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge win, but was unable to repeat the performance in Sunday’s TUDOR United SportsCar Championship race.
 
In CTSC, Pumpelly’s Rennsport One teammate, Luis Rodriguez Jr., qualified the No. 17 RS1 Porsche Cayman 10th on the ST grid in a qualifying session with limited green time. Pumpelly knew the starting spot was not representative of the car, nor his teammate’s speed, since Rodriguez Jr. was blocked on his best qualifying lap.

Pumpelly Scores Dramatic ST Win in Canada

 

RS1 Mosport

Bowmanville, CANADA (July 13, 2015) – Spencer Pumpelly was relieved to take the Rennsport One team back to the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge victory lane, not only because the team’s last visit was in January, but because of a grueling late-race battle at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.
 
Pumpelly, co-driver Luis Rodriguez Jr. and Rennsport One opened the 2015 Street Touring class (ST) season with a bang; scoring a win in the season opener at Daytona International Raceway. Since then, it’s been a string of near misses, as bad luck and mechanical gremlins have robbed the team of more representative finishes.

Quick Cars, But No Rewards For Pumpelly at the Glen

WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (June 30, 2015) – The Sahlen’s Six Hours of the Glen weekend seemed like it would result in a wealth of hardware for Spencer Pumpelly running in both the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship and the Continential Tire SportsCar Challenge. Though Park Place Motorsports and Rennsport One each gave Pumpelly a fast Porsche, overzealous drivers and mechanical gremlins prevented him from stepping onto the podium at Watkins Glen International.
 
The latest round of the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship was part of the Tequila Patrón Endurance Cup, a special prize that encompasses the four longest races of the season. The six-hour enduro at Watkins Glen is the longest race Park Place and Pumpelly have encountered since the 12 Hours of Sebring last March.

First TUDOR Victory for Pumpelly and Park Place

MONTEREY, Calif. (May 4, 2015) – Spencer Pumpelly finally captured his elusive first win in the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship on Sunday at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. He shared the GTD class victory with Patrick Lindsey and Park Place Motorsports, which claimed its first-ever professional win.
 
The Continental Tire Monterey Grand Prix Powered by Mazda weekend showed promise straightaway when Pumpelly’s co-driver Lindsey put the No. 73 Park Place Motorsports Porsche 911 GT America on the GTD pole. It was Lindsey’s first professional pole position. It wouldn’t be a flag-to-flag victory, however, as trouble at the start of the two-hour and 40-minute race shuffled Lindsey back.



“At the start of the race, there was a stack up in the GTLM field and Patrick had to take evasive maneuvers to avoid a crash,” Pumpelly explained. “In doing so, he gave up a bunch of positions. He fell back to fourth place. He got up to second, but was stuck behind the No. 007 Aston Martin. When we came down pit road for the first time, the No. 007 came too and our pit crew was able to beat them off pit lane by about a second. That was enough to leap frog ahead of them and from there, Patrick just packed his bags and checked out.” Read more...
