Rolex at the Glen!

Post by twomanymontes » Wed Jul 04, 2012 10:10 pm

Last Sunday Tim, Matt, My Dad, Brother in law, Myself and 2 of Matt's friends went to Watkins Glen for
the Sahlen's "Six Hours at the Glen" Rolex Series Race. After being there last ear, I couldn't wait till this year.
More cars were entered and they had even better side by side racing! I took over 170 pics! Here are the best of them, Enjoy!



Heading to the track, the scenery is just beautiful!

Before the race, we wandered around pretty much everywhere.

Had to have a quick talk with Boris Said.

Couldn't even get near Patrick Dempsey, He's some sort of an actor on the side I guess.

Of Course we rooted for Team Sahlen, they footed the bill for us to see the race!

Here is where we went wrong in April! We didn't have a map of the track in our cars!

The Start of the race was Awesome! They had a C-130 fly over the start finish line as the first GT car crossed it as well.
Wish the Pic came out.

We decided it was time to wander some.

Took some other pics of the race, then my batteries went dead.

And second place went to #94 Turner Motorsports BMW

Pics only do so much. I know there aren't too many race fans here, But It truely is one of those "you have to be there" deals.

I really can't wait till next year! Hopefully I can get another tire to hang in my garage.
