Round 6 of the IMSA SportsCar Championship will take place at the famed Watkins Glen International Raceway. Both Turner Motorsport aFe POWER equipped BMW M6 GT3s will compete through an intense 6-hours of door to door racing action. This year drivers will be introduced to a newly repaved track surface which will provide high levels of grip, making for an exciting race to watch.
Here is what Markus Palttala (Driver of the Number 97 Turner Motorsport BMW M6 GT3) had to say in a interview about the new track surface -
"It was a very useful day and we made good progress," Palttala said. "The biggest difference is the added grip of the new tarmac. Our M6 liked it and handled better than in the previous rounds. We’ve had great success at Watkins Glen before. I loved the track to start with – it’s a very cool layout and has a great rhythm – but now with the new surface, it’s simply awesome."
