Law, Donohue, and Brumos Porsche Set for Sahlen's 6 Hours of The Glen Rolex Grand Am Event

Grand American Rolex Sports Car series driver Darren Law, his teammate David Donohue, and the entire Brumos Porsche Daytona Prototype race team are travelling to upstate New York for the Sahlen's 6 Hours of The Glen to be held at the picturesque and challenging Watkins Glen International Speedway, the weekend of June 18-20. The Brumos team is no stranger to success at The Glen as they won there last year, and Law is optimistic that the #58 Red Bull liveried Fabcar Porsche will again find itself in victory lane.

"We had a solid race at Tremblant," remarked Law, referring to the team's competitive showing at the May 23rd event. "We for sure showed that we have the speed, and I think we can carry that speed with what we have learned this season into the Watkins weekend."

Porsche works driver Sascha Maassen will again team with Law and Donohue, and Darren clearly sees this as an advantage.

"David (Donohue) and I work well with Sascha," said Law, "and having him there simply makes the team that much stronger."

The 3.4 mile Watkins Glen racetrack has long been a favorite of Law's, and his previous success there winning the event in 2000 and 2001 in GT cars, gives him confidence heading into the 6 hour event.

"Watkins has always been one of those tracks that rewards a technical and precise driver," said Darren. "Of course there is a ton of history at that track, but I love the challenge of trying to get the most out of the car there. I think our Brumos Porsche is very well suited to that kind of track, and I feel we are going to be pretty good there."

The Rolex Grand American Sahlen's 6 Hours of The Glen endurance main event is scheduled for 11 am EST on Sunday, June 20. Speed Channel will carry the race live in a two-part segment beginning at 11 am and 3 pm EST respectively.
