Scheckter Speeds Through Watkins Glen Open Test

WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. -- Fresh off a victory at Texas Motor Speedway, Panther Racing driver Tomas Scheckter completed a full day of test at Watkins Glen International Wednesday. The IndyCar Series veteran recorded a top time of 128.589 mph, 1:34:3470 seconds while turning a total of 29 laps at the 17-turn, 3.37-mile road course.

Scheckter drove the #2 RockStar Chevrolet during the test, as teammate Tomas Enge flew to France to participate in the 24 Hours of Le Mans race this weekend.

Quote:

"This is a really great track. Lots of turns, up and down, and I like fast chicane that goes into the flat-out right hander. There are still some straights where the drivers can relax a bit. We're not looking for all-out speed here today; just trying to collect at much data as possible so we know where we stand when we come back here later this season. The main thing is to come out here and learn some new stuff. My dad, uncle and cousin have all raced here, so there's a little bit of tradition here for me. But mainly I'm hoping to continue the Panther tradition of winning when we come back here in September.
