Jason Workman will take in the Rolex Sports Car Series Grand-Am GT race at Watkins Glen this coming weekend after getting a late call-up to compete with Matt Connolly Motorsports.

Workman, who competed for MCM at Lime Rock Park back in May driving the team's Pontiac GTO, will this time co-drive the team's number #24 BMW M3 for the Sahlen's Six Hours of the Glen on June 8-9.

"It's great to get this opportunity," said Workman. "I appreciate Matt's confidence and it is exciting to get back behind the wheel of the BiltBest Windows & Doors BMW.

"I drove this car at Daytona in February. Watkins Glen is one of my favourite tracks. It is fun and fast, with some hard braking areas where I'll get a great chance to put the ABS brakes to full use.

"I look forward to the reliability of the well-sorted BMW M3 to give us six hours of hard-charging racing. BMW handling and BMW reliability is a potent combination for this race."

Workman's co-driver will be Jim Michaelian. The MCM sister car, the #21 Pontiac GTO.R meanwhile will be driven by team owner, Matt Connolly and Hal Prewitt.
