2010 Team USA Scholarship Nominee

Spencer Pigot, 16, – Windermere, Fla.

Current Season: In his first full-season of national level car racing, Pigot has been incredibly strong in the Skip Barber National Championship.  He has won two races and finished inside the top-three in an astounding 91.7% of the events through 12-Rounds.  He is currently leading the overall championship by 20-points.

Previous Experience:

  • Karting – Multi-time national champion
  • (2009)-Skip Barber Regional and Summer Series
  • (2009)- SCCA 13-hour endurance race at VIR (1st in class)
  • 2009-10 Karting Skip Barber Scholarship winner
  • (2010) Ontario Formula Ford Championship (1st place in debut race)

Why He Would Be A Good Selection for the Team USA Scholarship: Pigot has been a front-runner in go-karts for several years now and his ability behind the wheel of a race car is astounding.  He’s taken his time developing his craft in the karting ranks and if he’s given the opportunity to showcase his race car skills in Europe… he won’t disappoint.  Additionally, he’s known for his ability to adapt to new cars quickly which is an invaluable trait for up-and-coming drivers.  Consider him one of the favorites for the overall prize.
