    Watkins Glen Hosts Super SimRacing Contest!

    Round 3 of the Racing Edge SimRacing Series Season 2 provided a hugely contentious race at Watkins Glen!

    Watch the entire stream from Watkins Glen - including practice, qualifying and race sessions - in the YouTube video above.

    You can watch the Watkins Glen track guide with race host Morad here:

    Racing on the Classic Boot layout, our competitors put on quite the race at Watkins Glen. The track is not only well used in real life, but incredibly popular for SimRacing on the iRacing platform too.

    Both categories provided a fantastic race for competitors and viewers alike. Once again, the standard of SimRacing on show was nothing short of top class.

    In the GTE category, last week's Sebring winner Alex Simonic was looking for successive victories to mount his title challenge. However, Varrone and Bihn once again renewed their heated rivalry which spectacularly came to blows on the final lap.

    Who came out on top for the $125 top prize in this titanic battle? Who will be facing the wrath of the race stewards? You'll have to watch the video to find out!

    In the GT4 category, Sebring winner Andrew Waring was in the thick of things for the second week running. But Sam Fellows - desperate for a win after his Daytona heartbreak - and Michael Moorley chased him all the way. And could Michael Broomhead finally score a podium place after back-to-back fourth place finishes? Check the YouTube stream for more!
