...in IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge
 






Team Hardpoint made a splash during their on-track debut over the weekend at the Roar Before the 24 in preparation for the Rolex 24 Hours At Daytona after running the fastest lap time of the GT4 entries in the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge with their No. 31 Team Hardpoint Grid Rival Audi R8 GT4.
 
 

Team Hardpoint Principal and driver, Rob Ferriol, took to Daytona International Speedway for the first time and took full advantage of the six sessions over the three-day period to get up to speed. Teammate Spencer Pumpelly, recorded the fastest lap of 1:53.555 during Session 5 in the No. 31 Team Hardpoint Grid Rival Audi R8 GT4. The lap time put Team Hardpoint nearly four-tenths ahead of the rest of the competition in the GS class positioning them as favorites for the season opener. 
 


Team Hardpoint will reunite for the BMW Endurance Challenge at Daytona on Wednesday, January 22. The newly formed team will begin practice on the same day and qualifying on Thursday, January 23.
 


NBC TRACKPASS will have live coverage of the race beginning at 1:00 p.m. on Friday, January 24, and it will be replayed tape-delayed on NBCSN on February 6.
 


New to the 2020 season, IMSA fans can now use TRACKPASS to follow Team Hardpoint live through all their streaming devices.
 


Tickets for the 58th Rolex 24 At Daytona are available on DaytonaInternationalSpeedway.com.
 



Rob Ferriol - Team Principal and Driver of the No. 31 Team Hardpoint/Gridrival Audi R8 LMS GT4



“Daytona certainly lived up to its reputation, and more. What a great track and event to kick off my first full year in Michelin Pilot Challenge. The car ran flawlessly, and Spencer and the rest of the team were a tremendous help in getting me up to speed very quickly. I think we picked up right where we left off in 2019, with a strong car and great potential to be competitive come race day.
 


It was amazing to see the results of the last few months of work this team has put in to prepare not only a new entry but an entirely new program. When we started to put this program together, we focused not just on getting the right talent to run the entry but getting the right people who can come together and work as a team to maximize our potential on track.

 

John Horton gave the drivers a fantastic car, Gary Biehl and the crew kept not just the car, but everything fans don’t see, running on all 10 cylinders, and Spencer put the No. 31 Team Hardpoint/Gridrival Audi R8 LMS GT4 at the top of the timing charts. You can’t ask for much more than that. Now we’ll head back to Dallas and get ready to do it all again in a few weeks!”
 



Spencer Pumpelly – Drive of the No. 31 Team Hardpoint/Gridrival Audi R8 LMS GT4


"We couldn't have asked for a better test than we had last weekend. We all arrived as a new team and everyone was quickly able to lock into their roles and get to work on making the No. 31 Team Hardpoint/Gridrival Audi R8 LMS GT4 fast. Rob and I were both able to turn solid laps and the car felt great all weekend. I'm looking forward to getting back to Daytona and running the race as my confidence in the team and car is very high after last weekend."
