Elkhart Lake, WI. (August 8, 2022) – A race-long battle for the lead was cut short for Pfaff Motorsports, as the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship event at Road America ended under full-course yellow to cap off the eighth round of the season.Matt Campbell qualified the No. 9 Driveway Porsche 911 GT3 R second ahead of Sunday’s race, before handing over the car to Road America rookie Mathieu Jaminet with two hours remaining. Light rain hovered over the circuit for nearly the entire race, but Jaminet still managed to work his way to the top spot.
The Driveway Porsche was in a prime position for victory – pitting while another yellow flew with less than an hour on the clock. However, as Jaminet raced back through the field, his momentum and potential fight for the win was halted due to a yellow flag that ultimately ended the race.The team finished in second place, but with a 227-point lead in the GTD Pro class championship with just two rounds left in the season. Road America has been a highlight on the schedule for Pfaff, the team having won its last two GTD class races at the 4.048-mile circuit.
