Event Preview: Wright Motorsports Eager for More Points at the Glen
WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (June 30, 2021) -- Another race week at Watkins Glen International is set to begin this weekend for Wright Motorsports in the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge. The Porsche customer racing team, having competed last week in the race festivities in the Porsche Carrera Cup, Michelin Pilot Challenge, and WeatherTech Series, will return to the same track this weekend for the Sahlen’s 120 at The Glen.
Last week, drivers Ryan Hardwick and Jan Heylen moved up two spots in the GS class championship point standings, following a fourth-place finish in the No. 16 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport
With just one practice and one qualifying session on the event schedule, the team will have limited time on track before Friday afternoon’s race at 2:35 PM. Although the No. 16 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport had plenty of time on track at the same circuit last week, the weather conditions this weekend are projected to be quite different, with rain predicted for both days of sessions.
The Sahlen’s 120 at the Glen will begin on Friday, July 2 at 2:35 PM ET, airing live on NBC Sports Gold’s TRACKPASS streaming service, as well as imsa.tv. For full event information, visit imsa.com.
I am looking forward to being back at the Glen for the next Michelin Pilot Challenge race. We showed good pace during the four-hour race last weekend, so we are aiming for another solid result at my favorite racetrack! I can’t wait to get back behind the wheel of our Wright Motorsports Cayman GT4 Clubsport this weekend!
Last week’s race would have been the perfect race with the perfect strategy if it wasn’t for us getting stuck behind a car under yellow. We need to come back and do exactly what we did last week and close the gap to the points leader in the championship.
