Grand Am Continental Tire Racing at Watkins Glen...
For now I'll have to be content to watch from afar and cheer on any Nissan results from many hours away.
This weekend it was the Continental Tire 150 which occured on this past Saturday. The two Nissan teams involved were divided between the Grand Sport and the Street Tuner classes with Doran Racing and their 370Z in GS and Skullcandy Racing and their Altima in ST.
Doran Racing has been having issues on and off with their 370Z and this weekend was another downer, finishing 25th on the day in a field of 30, completing only 37 laps vs. the winner's 59. At least they looked good in their time on the track! For the year Doran Racing has competed in four Continental events, sit 23rd out of 42 teams on the year and have finishes of 33rd, 8th, 7th and now 25th to show for it. The speed to run in the top ten is there, the consistency or reliability is not.
Skullcandy Team Nissan sits 22nd on the season out of 43 teams after this weekend where they and their Altima coupe finished seventh in class and on the lead lap. Having finished 8th, 12th and 7th in the three events they have entered in '12, they are really showing the potential of the platform and giving the class a run for their money when they compete.
