Pumpelly’s Pace Dominating in Pirelli G4 Series Race Win
Spencer Pumpelly led all the way in his Porsche 718 Cayman CS MR to capture the Pirelli GT4 America Series race Sunday morning at the 45th Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach.
Pumpelly, the polesitter racing in the Pro category, finished 0.687 ahead of Ian James (Panoz Avezzano GT4), with Michael Cooper (McLaren 570S GT4) third. Pumpelly also set fastest lap in the overall/Pro ranks, averaging 81.72 mph on lap 27 of the 29-lap race, which was slowed by two full-course cautions in the early going.
