WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. – The Classic BMW Silver pair of Stevan McAleer and Toby Grahovec won for the second time in as many days during Sunday’s GT America event at Watkins Glen Int’l.
After a penalty in the first race of the weekend dropped the No. 11 BMW M4 of Grahovec and McAleer to the rear of the field for the second race, Grahovec had to claw his way through a busy field. It took them nearly the entire race, but with roughly 20 minutes left McAleer drove the No. 11 entry into the race lead after the drive swap.
With 12 minutes to go, the No. 66 Porsche of Derek DeBoer and the No. 120 Porsche of Adam Adelson collided, forcing a full-course yellow that would eventually end the race. The No. 15 BSport Racing Aston Martin of Bryan Putt led in the Pro-Am class as the caution flew, but had time added due to an infraction that allowed the #24 Heart of Racing Aston Martin driven by Gray Newell and Ian James to win for the first time in the Pro-Am category.
Smooge Racing’s John Geesbreght and Kevin Conway, sharing the No. 68 Toyota GR Supra GT4, took the Am class.
