We’ve shown you all kinds of in-car footage from race tracks across the country, and the world for that matter, but there is something about them that keeps us coming back for more. And more is what we have here! But instead of this being in-car footage from the front of the race pack like you’re probably used to, this footage gives you a look at what it’s like to be something other than a front runner with wide open road in front of you. Check it out in the MotorSportMedia video above.
This footage was taken from inside the #31 Whelen Motorsports-sponsored Corvette at the July 1st Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen Grand-Am race. Boris Said, one of the drivers of the 460 HP LS3 racecar can be seen tailing the #70 SpeedSource RX-7 at the beginning of the race about mid pack for the GT-class, maintaining his position among some of the best racers.
Said has been road racing for more than 20 years and his lengthy experience can be seen in the way he expertly maneuvers around the corners on the Long Course of Watkins Glen International.
But the real highlight of the video isn’t Said’s handling capabilities. Rather, it’s the mid-course traffic he finds himself in and the glorious engine note of the modified C6 he’s piloting.
Said went on to finish the Sahlen’s race in 20th place for the GT class. Hopefully the Marsh Racing team will have better luck in their next race with the Whelen Motorsports Corvette come July 27th.
