Google quickly found a pdf article for me with a 2007 study. "Resistance to Phytophthora infestans in Lycopersicon pennellii"

Sounds like they found something useful, however they suggested combining it with other known traits from hirsutum and pimpinillifolium. Also it's quite probable it's not in all pennellii.

No Phytophthera infestens only happens rarely here. When it does it affects the local seed potato industry and gets in the news.

Wonder how updated this map is.

That's pretty up to date. Latest report listed is 8/27 and there's probably going to be more reports listed in the next week.
