Monterey, California – In today's 15-minute qualifying session for the American Le Mans Monterey race, Spencer Pumpelly claimed the 4th spot on the class grid in the No. 45 Flying Lizard Motorsports Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car, with Dion von Moltke taking the 6th spot in the sister No. 44 for tomorrow's 4-hour race.
Spencer described the qualifying results, saying "The guys did an awesome job putting a strong car underneath me for qualifying and it would have been nice to find another tenth or two, but I'm much more interested in our race pace which I think we've done a good job of dialing in over the weekend."
Dion was also focused on race pace, adding "We took a good step setup-wise immediately before qualifying, and the car is the best it's been all weekend.
We were able to run multiple laps within a tenth of a second of one another during qualifying, which bodes well for the race and is what you need really, especially on a low grip track that typically is inconsistent over the course of the race with all of the dirt and sand which is dragged onto the track. I think we are in good shape for tomorrow's race."
