Scott Hargrove of OpenRoad Racing extends lead in Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge
Scott Hargrove, 19, from Surrey, B.C., representing OpenRoad Racing, blazed through the streets of Toronto to extend his commanding lead in the Ultra 94 Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Canada. Hargrove won decisively in Round 5 on Saturday July, 19 and claimed second in Round 6 on Sunday July, 20.
Round 5 was a crazy one with anti-freeze coming out all over the track from a competitor’s car and Hargrove trailing. He avoided spinning out and took advantage of an opportunity to take the lead and win.
Round 6 was a race of literally an inch when Hargrove attempted to pass competitor Chris Green. Neither driver gave an inch and contact resulted in Hargrove getting a drive-through penalty. Hargrove was able to race back up to a second place finish.
Hargrove has won four of six rounds and extended his lead in first place to 116-100 over second-place Green after this weekend in the Ultra 94 Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Canada. Rounds 7 and 8 of the 10-round season are scheduled for Aug. 9-10 in Trois-Rivières, Quebec.
