Watkins Glen, NY – Series officials from the F2000 Championship Series and F1600 Formula F Championship Series have adjusted the weekend’s schedule following “non-races” due to opening lap incidents on Saturday at Watkins Glen International.
In F1600, a big turn two crash caused a long stoppage, and the race will be run on Sunday morning 9:50 local time. The grid will be based on Saturday’s qualifying with Wyatt Gooden in a Van Diemen/Honda leading Championship contenders Bill Valet and Tim Kautz to the green flag.
The race will also be just ten laps, instead of 12. The afternoon race will run as scheduled at 2:10, with grid order set by fast laps in race one.
Meanwhile, in F2000, a 35-car field took the green flag with Tom Fatur making heavy impact into the pit lane separator. Fatur walked away, but massive damage to the armco led to a red flag. That race will go at 11:25 local time on Sunday, also shortened by two laps, from 14 to 12. Remy Audette, who will clinch the 2011 Championship when the green flag flies, is on pole.
Race two will go at 3:55, as scheduled, with grid order set by race one lap times, to conclude the 2011 season.
