In GT Le Mans, Corvette secured a front-row lockout with Antonio Garcia in the No. 3 Corvette C8.R leading Tommy Milner in the No. 4 Corvette C8.R. Garcia’s best time was a 1m40.944s and was +0.374s quicker than Milner.
“That felt fantastic
It’s always fun to qualify here. That’s when you really get to experience Watkins Glen,” Garcia said.
“You can really go for it & be really close to the walls. It was fun.
Unfortunately, I had one lap deleted (for track limits infraction), which didn’t help, but I was able to almost do it again.
The C8.R was great again. It’s always good to get on pole and to get one for Corvette Racing.”
After the 2 C8.R Corvettes came the two BMW M8 GTEs with the No. 25 BMW of Connor De Phillippi getting the better of John Edwards in the No. 24 BMW. De Phillippi’s best time was a 1m41.357s. Cooper MacNeil had qualifying duties in the No. 79 WeatherTech Racing Porsche 911 RSR and ended the session last in class.
