Scott Hargrove of Surrey won seven races in the 10-race Ultra94 Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge auto racing series

Hargrove sweeps GT3 Cup races

Surrey driver finished third in series standings

Scott Hargrove was the dominant driver of the series, yet finished in third place in the Platinum Cup standings of the Ultra94 Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge auto racing series.

The Surrey driver capped off the season with two victories at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in Bowmanville, Ontario last weekend, upping his win total to seven in eight races.

But by missing the first two races of the 10-race series, Hargrove was in a hole far too deep to climb out of. Chris Green, winner of the two races on the opening weekend, nursed his points lead over the final eight races of the series to clinch top spot, despite finishing behind Hargrove in each of those eight races.

Driving for OpenRoad Racing, Hargrove won a caution-filled race Saturday, crossing the finish line with the yellow flag waving.

“It’s just too bad we didn’t get more green-flag laps, but still, we were able to walk away when it was green,” Hargrove said. “I’m just super, super happy with the OpenRoad Porsche.”

The margin of victory was 11 seconds Sunday, and Hargrove led from start to finish.
