TORONTO (March 21, 2022) // After an impressive win at the 24 Hours of Daytona, Pfaff Motorsports came away with a fifth-place finish at the 12 Hours of Sebring that maximized the potential of the No. 9 Driveway Porsche 911 GT3 R throughout the weekend.It was evident from the beginning of the week the Porsche lacked pace compared to its GTD Pro competitors and the trio of Matt Campbell, Mathieu Jaminet and Felipe Nasr started from sixth place.
However, the team didn’t put a foot wrong for the full 12 hours on the notoriously bumpy racetrack, performing flawless pit stops and executing different strategies to attempt to fight for a podium after winning the race in GTD last season.
With its top-five finish, Pfaff Motorsports maintains a three-point lead in the driver and team championship standings in the 2022 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season. The team is also second in the IMSA Michelin Endurance Cup, which resumes at Watkins Glen International in June
“I felt like we did everything we could to keep the car running in the top five all day long. It was a difficult race for us, and it’s frustrating because we all wanted to be up there fighting for another win. Having great execution, great pit stops, great driving from Mathieu and Matt, the calls on strategy, everything else was looking good. But when you look at the result, we weren’t quite there to fight for that victory. There’s a lot to analyze and understand, but we move on and it’s still points for the championship. My job here was to help them the most I could in the endurance races, and when we don’t have the car to win, we have the car to score the maximum points and I feel today is one of those days. We’ll keep working for a better one next time.”
