Pumpelly Closes Sprint-X Season with Podium in Texas

AUSTIN, Texas (Sept. 6, 2017) – Spencer Pumpelly wrapped up his Pirelli World Challenge Sprint-X season with a podium finish for Magnus Racing at Circuit of the Americas (COTA). Though the triple-header had its setbacks, Pumpelly and teammate Pierre Kaffer ended the weekend with a third-place finish.
 
The first of three races took place on Friday evening. Though the Sprint-X format typically includes just two races, a rain-out at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in May, forced Series officials to add a make-up race at COTA.
 
The grid carried over from what had been established in Canada, putting Pumpelly eighth on the grid in the No. 4 Magnus Racing Audi RS 8 LMS.

Pumpelly Endures Trying World Challenge Weekend in Utah

TOOELE, Utah (Aug. 14, 2017) – Spencer Pumpelly returned to Pirelli World Challenge action with Magnus Racing at the Utah Motorsports Campus. He joined co-driver Pierre Kaffer for Rounds Seven and Eight of the Sprint-X Championship.
 
In the last round of the PWC Sprint-X Championship, Pumpelly and Dane Cameron earned the first series victory for Magnus Racing. But that was at 1.5-mile Lime Rock Park, and this weekend’s 3.048-mile Utah Motorsports Campus was all about straight-line speed. In that department, the No. 4 Audi RS8 LMS faced stiff competition from the rest of the field.

 

In Saturday morning’s qualifying session, Pumpelly’s best was only good enough for 11th on the grid for that afternoon’s 60-minute race. He knew he’d need to make an aggressive charge when the green flag dropped to gain positions. Read more...

SEBRING, Fla. (March 22, 2017) – Fresh off a podium finish in the opening round of the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge, Spencer Pumpelly and co-driver Nick Galante scored their first win of the season at Sebring International Raceway.
 
Driving the No. 17 RS1 Porsche 911 Cayman, Galante qualified a career-high sixth and backed it up with a solid opening stint that kept the team in the mix with the leaders.
 
“He qualified his career-best seventh at Daytona and then upped it by one to qualify sixth this time,” Pumpelly smiled. “He’s doing a really good job this season, not only qualifying well, but running the opening stint in a smart, competitive way that puts us in a position to get these wins.” Read more...

DATYONA BEACH, Fla. (Feb. 2, 2017) – Spencer Pumpelly and teammate Nick Galante stood on the podium at Daytona International Speedway for the first round of the 2017 Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge (CTSC). The teammates and Rennsport One kicked off their Street Tuner (ST) Championship defense with a third-place finish in the four-hour BMW Endurance Challenge at Daytona.

 
Pumpelly started the 2017 season with an exciting format change in the CTSC; instead of the usual two-hour races, IMSA announced that both the opening round at Daytona and the penultimate round at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca would be four-hour events.
 
“We debated strategy a lot before the race because it was a new format,” Pumpelly said. “We ultimately decided—since Nick had been showing really good pace—to do what we had been doing in the short races, just each of us do a little more of it.”
