Ian James, (Phoenix, Ariz.) and Mario Farnbacher (Ansbach, Germany) are looking to carry the momentum forward from a second place run in the Alex Job Racing prepared No. 23 Team Seattle-The Heart of Racing Porsche from the last race in Detroit. The duo have moved up to third in the TUDOR SportsCar GTD point standings on the strength of that run in the MotorCity. The 3.4 mile 12 turn Watkins Glen International Raceway circuit is new to young Farnbacher and of James' favorite circuits.

"Watkins has always been a track I look forward to going back to, steeped in history and it suits my driving style," James said. "I like the Boot section. It is very technical and flowing and if you have a good handling car it is fun to drive. For the six hour race, we will have to focus our strategy on getting the right fuel strategy to stop first and make it to the end - hopefully looking after the car for the first five hours. The GTD class is so competitive it is just a longer sprint race these days."

Farnbacher is looking forward to adding a new track to his racing resume.

"Watkins Glen is a new circuit to me," Farnbacher said. "I know that it has a lot of history in Formula 1 and sportscars and a track that I am looking forward to running. Ian and I will do the race with just two drivers, so I will get a lot of seat time this weekend in the No. 23 Team Seattle-Heart of Racing Porsche. We had a great run at Detroit, I think that is just the beginning of great things to come from this new team. Since Detroit I have driven at the Red Bull Ring (Austria) in round four of the ADAC GT Masters. I also put in some time at my father's car dealership in the shop."

Alex Job, team owner, has the team ready for another strong run this weekend.

"We will try and take the success at the last race in Detroit and repeat that effort this weekend in New York," Job said. "Ian and Mario work well together and Ian has a lot laps at The Glen and will be a guiding hand for Mario. Mario will get up to speed quickly and we are looking for another podium run this weekend - or better."

The TUDOR Championship Sahlen's Six Hours of the Glen at Watkins Glen International will be broadcast on Fox Sports 1 starting at 11 a.m. ET June 29.
