At Canadian Tire Motorsport Park

BOWMANVILLE, Ontario, Canada, May 23 — Less than 10 days after Wright Motorsports announced it would field a Porsche 911 GT3 R for Patrick Long to drive in the GT class of the Pirelli World Challenge series, he led every lap of both doubleheaders from the pole and set the fastest lap of each race last weekend at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.

 

His Wright Motorsports teammate, rookie Michael Schein, did exactly the same thing in the GTA class with his Porsche 911 GT3 R for his first two series victories ever.

Wright Motorsports will field a Porsche 911 GT3 R for Patrick Long to drive in the 13 remaining races on the 2016 Pirelli World Challenge schedule, putting the popular Porsche factory driver back in contention for the series' GT drivers championship.

It was only the second event ever in this very competitive series for the driver from Glen Cove, N.Y., who now has three podium finishes in four starts. In the first 50-minute race on Saturday Schein was never out of a podium position and he was hounding the winner at the checkered, finishing just 0.133 of a second behind.

Wright Motorsports' Skeer Earns Championship And Wright Motorsports Takes Team Title In Porsche GT3 Cup USA for 2015
 
SALINAS, Calif., Sept. 28 — Wright Motorsports has produced yet another champion and won yet another team title.
 
On Saturday afternoon, six months after the Batavia, Ohio-based team announced that it would field a Porsche for 21-year-old rookie Elliott Skeer of Carlsbad, Calif. in the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama, Skeer earned the series' top driver championship with a flag-to-flag victory at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca during Porsche Rennsport Reunion V. That clinched the drivers' championship in the top class, Platinum Cup, for Skeer, who was a wildcard entry in the Porsche Young Driver Academy last October.
 
With Kasey Kuhlman's fifth-place finish in the second half of the doubleheader on Sunday, Wright Motorsports earned yet another series team championship. It also won the team title in 2012 and 2013. A total of 16 teams participated in 2015.
 
Skeer, who was born in Huntington, N.Y., recorded 13 podium finishes during the season, including five victories in the 16 races. A total of 30 drivers earned points.
 
Kuhlman, who earlier this month clinched his second consecutive Masters class championship for drivers 45 and older, also duplicated his fifth-place finish in 2014 in the overall Platinum point standings in 2015. Kuhlman, of Cincinnati, ended the season with 300 points in the Masters' competition with his Kuhlsport #15, which was much more than the runner-up's 238.

Dempsey/Wright Motorsports Battles Back After Early Transponder Problems

To Finish Third in the 2015 Rolex 24 at Daytona

 

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., Jan. 27 — If a team has to have problems in the Rolex 24, it's best to have them early.

 

But Dempsey/Wright Motorsports took that old saying to new levels when it dropped from fourth in class on the grid to last place at the beginning of the Rolex 24 Saturday afternoon at Daytona International Speedway due to problems with its transponder, the electronic unit the series supplies to each car to record its laps completed.

 

The team made four pit stops to solve the problem, losing seven laps and dropping to 50th place overall and 17th in the GTD class after the first hour of competition. 

 

It spent the next 23 hours battling back to record an amazing podium finish of third in class and 15th overall Sunday afternoon in the premier event of IMSA's TUDOR United SportsCar Championship, the first of four races in the Tequila Patrón North American Endurance Cup.
