Standings IMSA Watkins Glen 2024 – Qualifying:

A little over a week after his pole position in LM P2 at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Louis Delétraz did it again in IMSA near Watkins Glen, this Saturday June 22. The Swiss driver put Wayne Taylor Racing with Andretti's Acura ARX-06 on pole in qualifying for Sunday's six-hour race.

The Cadillacs of Renger van der Zande and Jack Aitken complete the leading trio. Once is not customary, the first Porsche is not an official 963, but the JDC Miller-Motorsport car driven by Phil Hanson in 4th place. Accidented in free practice on Saturday morning, the BMW of Nick Yelloly and Connor de Phillippi did not participate in qualifying because the chassis had to be replaced tonight.

In LM P2, PJ Hyett (AO Racing Oreca) will start in the lead, as will Daniel Serra (Ferrari of Risi Competizione) in GTD Pro.

The 6 Hours of Watkins Glen will begin on Sunday at 17:05 p.m. French time and can be followed live video on AUTOhebdo.fr.
