Andrews commemorates Watkins Glen victory

Australian endurance racer Scott Andrews has actually celebrated success at Watkins Glen a day after among the largest crashes of his profession.

Andrews teamed with Gar Robinson as well as Felipe Fraga to victory in the LMP3 class of the Six Hours of The Glen event, part of the IMSA SportsCar Championship.

The 30-year-old had actually been trembled the day prior while competing a Toyota Gazoo Racing Supra GT4 at the same circuit.

” We had a front-left tire failing undergoing The Carousel; that’s a corner where you do not want to have anything go wrong,” Andrews remembered to

” I was simply generally directly into the fence, to make sure that was rather bad and also it sort of drank me around a bit … it was a large shunt.

” However I was gotten rid of to race again. I did a couple of laps in the warm-up as well as felt okay, to ensure that was excellent.”

Andrews drove the middle job in the Riley Motorsports Ligier JS P320, having seen Robinson manage the preliminary portion of laps.

” With some method we had the ability to have the fastest stint house as well as we were able to drive via the field,” he claimed.

” We ran down Marco Andretti and also passed him and pulled a rather big gap and also handed the vehicle over to Felipe Fraga, that ends up for us.”

Fraga was compelled to carry out a “ideal stint” after a late-race Caution placed the # 74 under restored stress.

” It was the lengthiest 30 minutes … I was just sitting there with my fingers went across,” added Andrews.

The success adheres to success in the 12 Hrs of Sebring back in March.

It’s a hectic 2021 program for the Miami local; while he’s in question to race in the 2nd leg of the GT4 Watkins Glen double-header as a result of a destroyed chassis, there’s plenty much more activity to come.

” After that, I fly to Paul Ricard immediately for a GTE test which is with Kessel [Competing] in the Ferrari, and after that straight from there the next day I most likely to Monza for the Le Mans Mug where I race with United Autosports.”
