Porter’s Peugeot powers to victory in first Masters Endurance Legends race at the Glen
Leading from start to finish, David Porter never put a foot wrong on his way to a controlled win in the first Masters Endurance Legends USA race at Watkins Glen. In his Peugeot 908, Porter stayed some 11 seconds clear from the Audi R8 of Larry Connor, who was second all race.
A late charge from Guy Cosmo in the Cadillac DPi-V.R started by Wayne Jackson lifted the ex-WTR machine up into third with minutes to spare, all at the cost of John Reisman whose Coyote-constructed Corvette DP had been third from the start. Travis Engen finished a steady race in fifth, his Audi R8 heading home Jim Devenport’s P2-class-winning ORECA-Nissan 03.
Just as in qualifying, the P3 class proved to be a fight towards the chequered flag, Will Lin maintaining a slim advantage over the rival Ligier JSP3-15 of Francesco Melandri, as the pair ran home eighth and ninth, ahead of a Kyle Tilley/James Hagan ORECA 03 delayed by a drivethrough penalty for a jump start.
Pierce Marshall was an unrivalled GT class winner in seventh overall, his Corvette C7.R staying well ahead of Douglas Baron’s Porsche 996 GT3 RS in 11th overall, with Marcus Jewell’s 997 GT3-R picking up third in class in 12th overall.
