Stavola and LeQueux Split The Stuttgart Cup™ Saturday Races Greenberg Wins Enduro and Both Sprints; Stavola Takes Cayman Enduro, LeQueux Doubles on Sprint Victories PALM BEACH, Florida
(February 14, 2015) – Mark Greenberg swept all three Mission Foods GT3 Cup Trophy USA by Car Amigo races at this weekend’s season-opening Palm Beach Grand Prix while Rick Stavola and Dominique LeQueux split The Stuttgart Cup™ races Saturday in the final day of competition at Palm Beach International Raceway. Greenberg, driving his 2009 No. 77 NETTTS/Orbit Racing Porsche 911 GT3 Cup, capped a dominating weekend with a solo drive to victory in Saturday afternoon’s featured 90-minute Enduro. That win followed a victory earlier Saturday morning in the weekend’s second 30-minute sprint race. Greenberg also won Friday’s first 30-minute sprint race. In Stuttgart Cup action, LeQueux won both the Friday and Saturday sprint races in his MOMO-themed No. 30 Cayman S prepared by top Porsche prep shop, Goldcrest Motorsports, but Stavola stepped up to take the Enduro victory Saturday afternoon.
Stavola was second in the Friday sprint and third in Saturday’s short race but improved in the Enduro with his own solo drive to first place. Making his Stuttgart Cup debut in the 2014 finale at Sebring with the winning Bodymotion team, Stavola has built a quick record of success that has seen him finish on the podium in each of his first five series races in his No. 22 Cayman S. He garnered a pair of third-place showings at Sebring to go along with his victory and second and third place finishes at Palm Beach.
The Enduro runner-up finishers in both Mission Foods GT3 and the Stuttgart Cup were weekend-best results for three drivers. Debuting Orbit Racing driver Matt Joffe co-drove with Lonnie Pechnik to second in the 90-minute race after solo drives to third place in both sprints in his 2004 No. 99 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup. Joffe was making his overall auto racing debut this weekend and reached the podium in all three races
