Freer Scores Podium at The Glen – Quarantine GT Series

Round 2 of the Quarantine GT Series headed to Watkins Glen International on Monday night, for a 60 Minute race.

With 3 drivers in the field, the Rev It Up Racing eSports Team looked to build on an eventful opening round.


#25 Jackson Freer
Qualifed: 8th
Race: 3rd

After finishing in the Top 5 in Round 1, Freer was hopeful to continue that performance – and he managed so brilliantly! After qualifying in 8th, Jackson quickly worked his way up to 5th, where he would sit until the pit stop cycle. As the lead drivers pitted, Freer stayed out long, hoping to maximise the advantage given by his low fuel load. The strategy paid off, coming out of the pits in 2nd. He was eventually overtaken, and locked into a fierce battle for the podium in the closing stages. Martin Crisp (XRC Racing) would make a move on Freer with 2 laps to go, resulting in contact. Both drivers continued on, Freer coming out the luckier of the two parties, for a fantastic podium result.


#27 Sean Grimmond
Qualified: 20th
Race: 12th

Sean Grimmond drove another calm race, steadily moving his way from 20th on the grid, up to 12th by the end of the 60 Minute race. Avoiding dramas was once again paramount to Grimmond’s success, as he knocks on the door of a Top 10 finish.


#23 Jeremiah Morton
Qualified: 1st
Race: 13th

It was a day of what could have been for Jeremiah Morton. He stormed the field in qualifying to take Pole Position by 0.036, and was eager to have a competitive race after the disappointment of Round 1. But the hope was short lived, as he span coming to take the green flag, into the Pit Wall. It was a red faced moment that left Morton well off the back of the pack, forcing him to work the entire race to get back to 13th.



Round 3 heads to Road America on May 4th. Meanwhile, the team prepares for the 24 Hours Nurburgring this weekend.
