After 14 cars to look after at Lime Rock ‘s Historic Festival over Labor Day Weekend, The VRS crew and crew chief Tim Ritchie needed a break!  SVRA’s Watkins Glen only allowed a days down time between unload and reload but proved just the ticket.  Late cancellations, rain and a low track time event schedule made it happen!

Jim Lenehan at speed. He is on Watkins Glen pit straight in his trusty Porsche 914-6 on his way to a 6th overall and 2nd in class for a podium finish on Saturday.

So, How did Tim get a break?   Well,  Jim only ran his Porsche 914-6  Qualifying 5th and finishing 6th overall & 2nd in class!!  Well done Jim.  More breaks:  Rain on-off & a Sunday forecast for more.  A crazy 8AM enduro time slot declined & short sessions all event = pack up Saturday.  Jim opted not to run the lonely Swift S2000 pictured right and which is now available.  It’s a very good value.
