Blog Post: Nearing the End
August 20, 2014
We're heading into the final two rounds of the Pro Mazda Championship this weekend in Sonoma, CA. So far it's been a great season. We have had our share of disappointing races but we've had more ups than downs and I'm leading the championship by 18 points. I've been traveling a lot, racing the past three weekends in a row. Two in Pro Mazda and one in the Porsche GT3 Cup Canada.
A few weeks ago we were at Mid-Ohio which ended up being one of those disappointing weekends. It started out really well, I was fastest in the two practice sessions and led most of qualifying. Mid-Ohio is a tough place to pass so qualifying was extremely important. Everyone knew that so almost every team selected to run two new sets of tires in qualifying instead of saving one for a race like we usually do. On the first set I was fastest but towards the end we all put on the second set. Unfortunately on my first few laps I caught traffic and then a red flag came out that ended the session early. It was so close I slipped back to 8th. In race one I gained a few places at the start and a few more during the race to finish 4th. I was running 4th again in race two until I made a mistake and went wide in turn one. I went off the track and rejoined in 7th. I was only able to make up one position to finish 6th. It was a shame not to even be on the podium after the pace we had in practice and the first half of qualifying. Overall it wasn't a horrible result, I only lost a few points in the championship that weekend.
Spencer Pigot Wins at the Milwaukee Mile to Extend Pro Mazda Points Lead
August 17, 2014
A decisive victory for Spencer Pigot in Saturday’s Allied Building Products Pro Mazda Oval Challenge enabled the talented youngster to claim an 18-point lead in the Pro Mazda Championship Presented by Cooper Tires with just two races remaining next week at Sonoma Raceway in California.
Pigot, 20, from Orlando, Fla., was the man to beat all weekend on the historic Milwaukee Mile – one of the oldest permanent race tracks in the world. Fastest in both Friday test sessions, Pigot’s #7 Doug Mockett & Company/Rising Star Racing/Vitamin-DPro App/California Scents/OMP car also set the pace during the pair of half-hour practice sessions on Saturday. He entered the single-car qualifying session in confident form but couldn’t quite maintain his perfect record and had to settle for the fourth fastest time and a place on row two of the extremely competitive grid.
Solid Results at Mid-Ohio Enable Spencer Pigot to Maintain Pro Mazda Points Lead
August 5, 2014
Lady Luck didn't do Spencer Pigot any favors during last weekend's Cooper Tires Pro Mazda Grand Prix double-header at the challenging Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, so the talented young racer concentrated on securing some valuable championship points. Pigot consequently holds a 14-point advantage with three races remaining in the hotly contested Pro Mazda Championship Presented by Cooper Tires.
The weekend began well with Pigot showing good speed during both the Thursday test day and the first official practice session on Friday morning. He was fast, too, in the early part of the lone qualifying session. Unfortunately, his team's strategy failed to play out when an on-track incident caused the session to be red-flagged and Pigot was unable to put together a clean lap in the final few minutes. He had to be content with an unrepresentative eighth on the grid for Saturday's first race.
