MINI JCW Team Returns to Watkins Glen

The MINI JCW Team returns to Watkins Glen for the fourth round of the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge. The Continental Tire 240 At The Glen will be a four-hour endurance race that tests the limits of the vehicle. The MINI JCW Team has had success at Watkins Glen before, scoring a 1-2 finish in last season’s event. Despite the race being twice as long, and including new competition in the form of Mazda, the team will look to repeat their success.

The permanent course at Watkins Glen International opened in 1956 and has evolved into the 3.4 mile course it is today. The course features 11 turns and hosts almost every north-American racing series.

The team will once again run three cars. Derek Jones and Nate Norenberg will man the 37 car, and look to build on some of their recent fast runs. Colin Mullan will make his second start for the team, after debuting at Mid-Ohio. Mullan will be be joined by veteran Mark Pombo in the 52. The Mid-Ohio winning duo of Mat Pombo and Mike LaMarra will return in the 73, hoping to make it two wins in a row.

The MINI JCW Team will host their Meet and Greet on Saturday, June 30th at 11AM in the Team Garage. Fans can register at the MINI Display for a chance to win a hot lap in a JCW driven by team owner, Luis Perocarpi. The winner will be announced at the Meet and Greet.

The Continental Tire 240 At The Glen will take place at 1:55 PM on Saturday, June 30th. You can watch the race live on IMSA.tv, the IMSA Roku app, or on the IMSA mobile app. Qualifying will be on IMSA radio and you can keep track of timing and scoring for all events at scoring.imsa.com
