We’ve now got a race back under our belt at Watkins Glen after the disappointment of Le Mans, and it was great to come away with a good points haul and maintain a share of the points lead.

wg_MotorsportOur car that was damaged at Le Mans is still being rebuilt at Pratt & Miller and we drove the Larbre Competition Corvette C7.R chassis at the Glen that was the No.4 Corvette Racing entry for the first half of last year.

The car felt very similar to our own car. There’s just a little bit of a difference with the cockpit.

The car handled like our own so there were no problems there. It was good to get back in the car after the accident at Le Mans and try to get ready for the race.

The start of the race at the Glen was very interesting since everybody was on slicks and the track was quite wet, so that made it really difficult and very easy to make mistakes but I think we handled that pretty well.

Qualifying was cancelled so being the points leader we were able to start from pole and lead into the first turn. It was tricky early as the Porsches were very fast.
