Pfaff Motorsports – Toronto Indy qualifying reportAug 24th, 2016
Chris Green qualified his #9 Castrol-Pfaff Motorsports Porsche GT3 Cup car in third for this afternoon’s first race at the Honda Indy Toronto, with a best lap of 1:14.398, less than a half-second behind pole-sitter Scott Hargrove. The 2015 Canadian Platinum Cup champion is racing his first weekend as a participant in the Canadian GT3 Cup series, having previously competed in the Pirelli World Challenge at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, and in the ultra-competitive U.S. GT3 Cup series at combined races at the Montreal Grand Prix and Watkins Glen International.
Orey Fidani, who is running the full Canadian series, qualified his #13 Orlando Corporation-sponsored 911 GT3 Cup in sixth position. “I felt like this was my best qualifying session yet,” he said/ “The car felt good, and I’ve been constantly improving throughout the weekend. The track is ultra-bumpy – I felt like a bobblehead behind the wheel – but I’m looking forward to the race and hopefully moving up a few positions.”
Driving his #57 Cayman GT4 Clubsport, Gerald Panneton will start second in class. “The circuit is tight and narrow, and it was really tough to get a clean lap in, and I was dealing with traffic throughout the session. This is my first time at this track, and I’m still learning a lot, but am getting better with every session behind the wheel.”
