Law Has Sites Set on Sahlen's Six Hours at the Glen
Endurance racing veteran and Brumos Porsche pilot Darren Law of Phoenix, Arizona has a short break this month before heading to picturesque upstate New York for the Grand American Rolex Series' Sahlen's Six Hours at the Glen at Watkins Glen International Raceway the weekend of June 8-9. Law, and teammate David Donohue of Malvern, Pennsylvania have several top ten finishes this year in the Grand American Rolex Sports Car Series Presented by Crown Royal, and are hoping to continue that streak of success with their #58 Red Bull Brumos Porsche Riley Daytona Prototype.
Law and Donohue enter the Sahlen's Six Hour weekend 6th in points in the Daytona Prototype driver's points standings. They are a mere four points from 5th place, only five points from 4th and eleven points out of 3rd. The closely contested driver's championship points race will set the stage for some hard racing amongst an extremely competitive field of cars.
The Watkins weekend will feature the full long course version of the historic and challenging 3.4-mile roadcourse that includes the "boot" section. Over the last several years, rain has a played a roll in the outcome of the event, and drivers and teams will be preparing for that scenario again.
"We've done well in the past at Watkins and I won the 6 hours in 2001 in a GT car. Our car has been running very well over the last several races and we have been competitive enough to win. David and I know that with the right strategy a good set up and some luck we can definitely win. Watkins can be a tricky circuit especially if it starts raining, but it is a track that I really enjoy, it offers some good places to pass, which we haven't had at the last few tracks. I'm looking forward to being there."
