Kyle Marcelli, No. 1 Prestige Performance with Wayne Taylor Racing (PRO)
“Watkins Glen International is arguably one of my favorite race circuits in North America. It’s a highlight on the calendar for me. We are seeking wins. It’s that simple. We’ve finished 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th in the four races thus far… But, still missing that elusive first victory. So, it will be extremely important that we unload a car that we are pleased with in terms of handling and performance. As we’ve learned already this season, the free practice time is limited and it’s crucial to maximize every lap to get the experience, the reference points, and the data we need. It’s all about the team and getting the No. 1 Prestige Performance with Wayne Taylor Racing into victory circle.”
Daniel Formal, No. 1 Prestige Performance with Wayne Taylor Racing (PRO)
“After two rounds of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America season, Kyle and I are in fourth position of the championship just a few points away from second and third place. It’s been a roller coaster of a year so far and I’m very excited to go to Watkins Glen. I have not raced at the next two rounds of the LST season, so I’m super excited to race at one of the most iconic tracks in North America this weekend. The track looks super-fast and grippy. Prestige Performance with Wayne Taylor Racing are ready for a win and we’re going to give it our all. We’ve proven that we can fight with the front guys now and our baseline setup is super close to where the car needs to be. The team has worked incredibly hard, so it’s very important to give them a win.”
Ashton Harrison, No. 25 Harrison Contracting with Wayne Taylor Racing (AM)
“After missing out on Watkins Glen last year, I am excited to be back at this super-fast and technical track. I had great success back in 2019 there and had my first ever podium in Lamborghini Super Trofeo. I’m ready to take it up another step and looking forward to charging up front again. The team and I are hungry for more wins, so I am fully ready to get to work and capture another win. It is never easy, but I believe we have put in the hard work and can achieve it. Time to buckle up and make up the points loss at VIR to regain the championship lead."
Randy Sellari, No. 03 JG Wentworth with Wayne Taylor Racing (AM)
“I’m looking forward to Watkins Glen and the challenges this iconic track presents. It's a place that commands respect with its unforgiving nature and close proximity of the barriers. Mistakes under any condition, especially if it rains, almost always result in bad situations so this circuit requires peak focus. However, finding the limits here makes for some great racing that really challenges each driver individually. I’m mentally and physically prepared to press for my first podium finish in the AM class with WTR’s help. They’ve been fantastic this year setting up a car that fits my driving style, so with a little luck, I believe I’ll be able to grab a podium step in front of family and friends attending the race this weekend. I’m anxious for IMSA's return to Watkins Glen for the first time since 2019 and the excitement that I know it brings.”
