BOWMANVILLE, Ontario, Canada (July 11, 2016) – Spencer Pumpelly and Change Racing earned their best WeatherTech SportsCar Championship finish of the season at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park over the weekend. His efforts with Rennsport One brought home another podium finish and extended its lead in the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge.
Pumpelly and teammate Corey Lewis scored a top-five finish in the Mobil 1 SportsCar Grand Prix. Driving the No. 16 Pertamina/Monster Energy Lamborghini Huracán GT3, Pumpelly qualified the car third on the GTD grid. He held onto that spot until it was time to hand the car over to Lewis.
Pumpelly’s teammate was able to push even further up the order to second, but as the two-hour and 40-minute race played out, the full-course caution periods were not falling in the team’s favor with its reverse-strategy of putting Pumpelly in the car to open and close, and Lewis taking the middle stint.
