IMSA 6 Hours of The Glen

Jonny Edgar unfortunately didn’t get to turn a wheel during the 6 Hours of The Glen IMSA endurance cup round at Watkins Glen, New York following a crash in the second hour of the race for his teammate, Joao Barbosa.

After scoring a fantastic 4th place finish in the LMP2 category last time out at Le Castellet, Jonny and his Sean Creech Motorsport team, who have been making good progress with the sole Ligier JS P2 in the field, were hungry for more success in the third round of the season.

Jonny ran well throughout free practice, posting lap times that put the #33 in the top 5 of the LMP2 category on the timing pages, and after teammate Lance Willsey kept out of trouble and qualified in 13th position, the D.Tolson and Sons driver was ready for the race on Sunday.

However, after a great opening stint by Lance, Joao took over the driving duties, caught too much curb on the exit of turn 1 and spun out into the barriers. The team got the car back to the pits but the damage was too much and they were forced to retire the car.

Jonny: “Disappointed for the team, we were really heading in the right direction. The car is getting easier and better to drive each round and I think at the weekend we could have really shown something in the race – so we’ll look forward to doing that at the next one.”

Jonny will be back with the Sean Creech Motorsport team from 20-22 September for the Battle on The Bricks at Indianapolis, but for now his attention will turn to the third round of the European Le Mans Series at Imola on the 7th of July.

All of the IMSA and ELMS races in 2024 will be available to view on the championship’s YouTube channels.
