FIA GT CHAMPIONSHIP RACE QUOTES
First Place Overall:
David Donohue, #2 Chrysler Viper Team Oreca - I'm really happy. We've had our share of bad luck, and at Watkins Glen itself I've been jinxed, so it's been a long time coming. So to come here with a win, not to mention a great finish, is a big tribute to the team, and my teammate had a great drive as well.
Jean-Phillippe Belloc, #2 Chrysler Viper Team Oreca - The race was fine. The final lap we had a little problem with the gearbox. It was a problem to shift down, and we had to be careful with the brakes. But it was okay.
Second Place Overall:
Karl Wendinger, #1 Chrysler Viper Team Oreca - The race was good. We were leading right from the beginning. But at the final pit stop, we had to put some extra fuel in the car. It took a little too long to put the fuel in and the other car passed us, so we finished second.
Third Place Overall:
Christian Glasel, #19 Chamberlain Motorsports Dodge Viper - This was our first third place this year. We worked hard on it; we have three 4th places this year, so we have waited for it. This is like a victory for us.
First Place: NGT Class:
John O'Steen, #17 Schumacher Racing Porsche 911 GT2 - The car ran great. The Schumacher Porsche, as usual, just goes out and clicks them off one after another. We ran a good pace. The team did their usual great thing; Larry and I both turned lap times under our qualifying times.
