Washington Ferrari wins again at Watkins Glen.

Watkins Glen, NY, August 8. The Scuderia Ferrari of Washington/Girard Perregaux/Market Scan Ferrari 360 GT took a dominating GT win at the Bully Hill Vineyards 250 tonight, finishing six laps ahead of the Porsche which placed second in the class. With the win, their fifth this season, Ferrari drivers Brent Martini and Cort Wagner extended their lead in the GrandAm GT Drivers' Championship, and the Washington team continues to lead the GT Team Championship.

"We always love coming to Watkins Glen because it has so much history," Martini explained after his victory. "We were here for the Six Hour and we came up just a couple seconds short. Cort, I and the whole GP team, Ferrari of Washington, are delighted to get back here and get a first place."

Wagner agreed: "We got our first big win last year at Watkins Glen, and started our record winning streak here. The track is great, and the weather tonight just made it more of a challenge. The Washington crew put an incredible car together, and I can't thank them enough. Glenn (Marquis, team manager) called a perfect strategy, and everything just clicked."

The Scuderia Ferrari of Washington's Ferrari 360 GT is sponsored by Girard-Perregaux Watches, who have produced a limited edition chronograph celebrating the car. Additional sponsorship comes from Market Scan Information Systems, a leader in automotive retailer financing software, the Peris Companies, Tubi Style exhaust systems, and Putnam Leasing.
