Early pace from the three Aston's at IMSA's Watkins Glen 4hr event

Friday, June 25, 2021

It’s been a descent start to this weekend’s proceedings at IMSA’s Michelin Pilot Challenge event from Watkins Glen in New York State for the three Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT4 runners from Volt Racing with Archangel, Notlad Racing with RS1 and Stoner Car Care with Automatic Racing.

With Qualifying just completed along with two Free Practice sessions before that ahead of tomorrow’s four-hour race, all three Aston’s figure in the top ten GS cars amongst the combined grid of thirty eight GS and TCR cars ready for tomorrows race.

During FP1, the #23 Notlad Racing Aston of Pat Gallagher and Stevan McAleer was fastest with the #7 Volt Racing car of Alan Brynjolfsson and Trent Hindman in P3 with the #09 Stoner Car Care car of Ramin Abdolvahabi/Rob Ecklin and Brandon Kidd in P11.

Then in FP2, it was the turn of the #7 Volt Racing car to hit the top spot with the #23 Notlad car in P3 but with the #09 this time down in P20 as the only Aston running a three-driver crew.

In this afternoon’s Qualifying, it has been the #23 Notlad car of Pat Gallagher how has stolen the march on the other Aston’s by claiming a P3 slot on tomorrow’s grid with Brandon Kidd coming through in the #09 to claim P7 whilst Brynjolfsson will be disappointed with his P9 finish – 1.16 seconds off the pole setting pace from the #13 AWA McLaren 570s.
