Greetings from my second weekend in a row at Watkins Glen International, 9th weekend in a row volunteering, this time for IMSA’s Sahlen Six Hours at the Glen. What a spectacular event!
I had an absolute blast and will share some details in the next few posts, but for now here are some pictures from day 1 at WGI:
Props to Prestige Lamborghini Paramus, the town next to where I live for kicking ass all weekend with their #1 Huracan.

Finally a photo of me in my own Miata! I posted on facebook that I’d come back to the Mazda Owners Lounge and score some swag… boy did I ever score… so much swag I couldn’t believe it!
My whole trip to Watkins Glen for IMSA weekend was very Mazda-centric… my goal was to get some photos of the Le Mans 24h winning 787B heritage livery on the current Mazda LMP2 racing in IMSA WeatherTech Sports Car Championship… and boy did I ever get lucky being in the right place and at the right time.

Though based on the original 1991 Le Mans 24h winning 787B rotary livery, the current model was not a direct replica. The design and colors were unique enough and I really liked it. In fact I really liked it on both cars #55 and #70:
More to come soon…
