Championship Leader Hargrove To Continue in Series June 21-22 at Calabogie

Scott Hargrove didn't have to wait long to continue his fun in the Ultra 94 Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Canada by Michelin.

Hargrove, 19, from Surrey, British Columbia, swept the first two rounds of the 2014 season May 17-18 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in the No. 69 OpenRoad Racing Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car. It was supposed to be a one-off appearance, but the successful sports car debut spawned the idea of a return to the series later this summer for junior open-wheel star Hargrove.

OpenRoad Racing made that happen. The team announced June 9 that Hargrove will try to maintain his points lead and winning ways at Rounds 3 and 4 of the series June 21-22 at Calabogie Motorsports Park in Calabogie, Ontario.

"I was amazed with the amount of power the cars have and really enjoyed the challenge of adapting my driving style to suit a sports car," Hargrove said. "I can't wait to continue racing the OpenRoad Porsche in the Calabogie Grand Prix."

The return by Hargrove will re-ignite a budding rivalry with fellow junior open-wheel standout Spencer Pigot and 2013 Ultra 94 Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Canada by Michelin runner-up Chris Green that started in May at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.

Hargrove beat Green's No. 9 Pfaff Motorsports entry by .840 of a second in Round 1 and 1.442 seconds in Round 2. Pigot finished a close third in Round 2 in the No. 21 Alegra Motorsports Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car.

Pigot, 20, also races against Hargrove this season in the Pro Mazda Championship Presented by Cooper Tires junior open-wheel series. Pigot leads that series with 180 points, while Hargrove is second with 177.

Hargrove also is in a tight battle for the championship in the Ultra 94 GT3 Cup Challenge Canada by Michelin. He leads Green, 40-36, after the first two rounds.

"Scott's performance at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park was fantastic, and we are very proud to have been a part of it," said Christian Chia, president and CEO of OpenRoad Auto Group. "We believe Scott's talent and speed are obvious and want to continue to work with him in firmly becoming one of Canada's bright new stars."
