Race Report - IMSA Sports Cars Watkins Glen - Season 3, Week 2, 2017

By / iRacing IMSA Series / Friday, 30 June 2017 05:23

Week 2 of Season 3,17 came from the historic Watkins Glen using the Boot layout.  The race circuit is fast with some tricky slow and medium speed corners with elevation and camber changes which can throw the car of course if you are not careful.

Qualifying

Qualy didn't go too badly with a midfield position gained and only fractions of a second away from the top ten which was a good result.

Race

The race was very eventful at the start with a big accident in the first couple of corners which I came through unscathed.  After the first lap I was well in the top ten and looking to push towards the top five.  Over the subsequent laps I made a couple of errors which put me out of the top ten and then pitted early to try for an undercut.  The undercut paid off at the end with a top ten finish and some strong lap times.  Overall I was pretty happy with the result but it could have been better.
