Greg Thornton and David Porter became double winners in the Masters & HSR Race Weekend at Watkins Glen International, while Bob Blain and Travis Engen shared the spoils in the two Masters Formula Atlantic Plus races. Masters USA came out to the legendary track in Upstate NY with all its three North American grids – Masters Historic Formula One USA, Masters Endurance Legends USA and Masters Formula Atlantic Plus all adding to five grids brought by American organiser HSR.
In torrential conditions, Francesco Melandri and Don Ondrejcak won their respective prototype and GT classes in the final Masters Endurance Legends USA race at Watkins Glen.
The two dared to go out in the pouring rain, with Italian Melandri’s Ligier-Nissan JSP3-15 stretching out a one-minute lead over Ondrejcak’s ex-TRG Grand-Am Porsche 997 GT3 Cup car before the challenge of standing water became just too hard. The race was stopped after ten minutes.
