Fuel Mileage Dictates a Last Lap Thriller at Road America

Elkhart Lake, WI (August 22nd, 2011) – TRG celebrated another solid American Le Mans Series finish in GTC class at the Time Warner Cable Road Race Showcase at Road America after a last-lap thriller ended with fuel mileage dictating the results at the historic circuit.

The team entered the weekend with its sights set on a fourth straight class victory, having won the past three ALMS outings. Duncan Ende opened the race with a spectacular double stint and handed the car off to Spencer Pumpelly who was focused on conserving fuel while staying ahead of the hard charging 2nd and 3rd place cars throughout the race and then a sprint to the end. While the impressive streak did not continue, the second place finish in the highly-competitive class kept the Pumpelly-Ende No. 66 Racer’s Roast/Fox River Coffee team, in first place in GTC class by a mere point.

“We had a great run today" said Duncan Ende. "The 66 car was strong as always. The safety cars never did us any favors on our strategy, but we’re happy to take home another podium.”

TRG’s sister car, the No. 68 PR Newswire/South African Airways Porsche 911 GT3 Cup finished the day with a hard-fought sixth place result after early on-track issues. Team newcomer Emilio Di Guida put down solid times as he became accustomed to American Le Mans, multi-class racing. Di Guida’s teammate and series regular, Dion von Moltke, demonstrated lap after lap his potential to become one of the best, meticulously moving up through the pack after taking the reins from Di Guida.
