Aidan Yoder looking forward to Watkins Glen
Rounds five and six of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Series takes place at Watkins Glen this weekend.
Aidan Yoder and teammate Jordan Missig, who fought hard in their No. 53 Prestige Performance with Wayne Taylor Racing LST at NOLA last time out, will look to continue their positive trajectory this weekend.
Aidan Yoder, No. 53 Prestige Performance with Wayne Taylor Racing (PRO) “Watkins Glen is a track I’ve had at the top of my bucket list for a long time. I’m incredibly excited. Even though I’ve never driven it in real life, it’s one of my favourite tracks to run on the simulator. I’ve done several laps around there in many different cars. It’s very fast-paced and there are high-speed corners that require great levels of commitment. With all the different classes and championships running with us on this IMSA endurance weekend, there should be more rubber buildup than usual. This will help me build speed and gain confidence with a high grip surface. I’m curious to see how the new Pirelli compound effects the overall race product. From what I’ve heard, it’s a new tire that should hold up well in the heat of battle. WTR leads the team championship and I’m looking forward to extending the lead next weekend.”
