Watkins Glen International is located in New York and was the host of the US Formula One Grand Prix.  It's an excellent race circuit with fast flowing corners and a long back straight away.

Qualifying

Qualifying was a little disapointing with not being able to string together a full lap close to the times in the practice session.  After qualifying I was in twentieth position overall and thirteenth in class.

Race

The race was much better than qualifying being able to get into a good position early and having a great battle with the front running cars which lasted on to the first round of pit stops.  The battles continued after the pitstops with the Audi seeming to be good under brakes but not quite as fast as the Mercs in a straight line.  Overall it was a great race finishing thirteenth overall and eighth in class.

    The latest round of the iRacing IMSA Series came from Lime Rock Park which is an excellent little track which promisies some close racing and the usual thrills and spills.

    Qualifying

    Qualifying went well with a laptime that was good enough for 5th position on the grid which isn't a bad way to start the race.

    Race

    The race got off to a good start and without any issues and I was able to find a good groove sitting in 4th position for the pit stop phase of the race.  After the pit stop phase I was sitting in 3rd position and was being harrassed by the 4th place driver for a number of laps before he dropped off the pace.  The last few laps became rather exciting when the driver in 1st place had a spin which let me catch right up to the back of him and we had a great battle which came down to .1 of second as we crossed the line.  So in the end a great an entertaining race with me finishing second for a good points haul.

    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.
