Salinas, CA. (May 3, 2022) // After qualifying the No. 9 Pfaff Motorsports Porsche 911 GT3 R on pole the day prior, drivers Mathieu Jaminet and Matt Campbell controlled Sunday’s IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship race from flag to flag en route to the team’s second victory of the season, and its second victory at Laguna Seca in consecutive years.
Jaminet – in his IMSA debut at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca – pulled the Driveway Porsche ahead of the GTD Pro class before handing over the car to Campbell with an hour remaining. Together, the drivers led all but five laps of the race. Their performance was aided by Pfaff Motorsports’ strategy – particularly with tire degradation – which was executed to precision, as well as perfect pit stops from the crew.
As a result, the team and drivers have regained the GTD Pro championship lead after four races, with a margin of 50 points, and enter the class’s six-week racing hiatus on a high note.The fifth round of the season, the Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen, is scheduled for Sunday, June 26, at 10:40 a.m. ET. Endurance driver Felipe Nasr will rejoin the team for the event, in which Jaminet and Campbell finished top-five in last year’s GTLM class, and Nasr finished fourth in the DPi category.
