Mario Farnbacher (Ansbach, Germany) had the controls of the Alex Job Racing prepared No. 23 Team Seattle-The Heart of Racing Porsche for qualifying. The young German posted a time of 1:50.024 good for a fourth row starting spot. Farnbacher and Ian James, (Phoenix, Ariz.) have combined for some impressive laps and are looking for a one step on the podium improvement over their second place finish at the last TUDOR Championship event in Detroit. The Sahlen's six hour race will see the largest field since Sebring, 55 cars, 21 of those in the ultra-competitive GTD category.

"Yesterday, I drove the track for the first time," Farnbacher said. "I drove a 20 minute stint to learn the track. This morning, I drove for the second time. Normally, I get a little bit more track time. But, I didn't because we had a problem with the car and we had to get that worked out. I got just a few laps, but that is okay. It's a six hour race, not like a sprint race. Like in the past, we know that we were not that fast in qualifying - like the No. 22. But, we always have a very strong race car. We'll see what happens tomorrow."

James knows the Alex Job Racing-prepared Porsche is always good on race day.

"We've been working hard on the race set-up here," James said. "We're not the quickest car for one lap, but I think we'll be good during the race. The car is good on old tires. There are just two of us doing the race. We need to be consistent, be fast and we'll see how this pans out. Mario has learned the track very quickly and he will get faster as the race progresses. We are focused on besting our Detroit finish."

Alex Job, team owner, has a lot of confidence in Farnbacher and James.

"Ian and Mario really focus on having a good race car," Job said. "They don't put a lot of stock in a qualifying run, which was evident at Detroit with their second place run. They are taking a veteran approach to the race and they will be a factor when 4 p.m. Sunday rolls around."

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.
