Magnus Racing stacks on powerhouse Bryan Sellers for this weekend six hour race. Sellers, who lives about 40 minutes from us, has experience with the team as well as driving Porsches. Bryan shares the Falken Tire 911 GT3 RSR with Wolf Henzler in the ALMS. Joining John Potter and Craig Stanton, Bryan will be a strong addition for the win.
Bolstering their attack for this weekend’s GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series Sahlen’s Six Hours at the Glen, Magnus Racing is happy to add Braselton, Georgia’s Bryan Sellers to the No. 44 Magnus Racing Porsche 911 GT3 Cup.
Sellers will join Magnus Racing drivers John Potter and Craig Stanton as the trio will attempt to finish what Magnus Racing started last year – a victory in the famed endurance racing classic. Last year, Stanton – who qualified on pole and set a GT-class record in the Magnus Racing Porsche – and Potter were joined by Jeroen Bleekemolen and dominated the first half of the race before their progress was slowed by an electrical problem.

“Yes, you could say there is a sense of unfinished business for us at the Six Hour,” said Potter, who drove a strong stint during a brief rain shower that fell in the second hour of last year’s Six Hours. “We’ve had our eye on it all season and securing Bryan as our third driver means we have a really, really strong driver lineup. We know how fast Bryan is in a Porsche – we raced against him at this year’s Rolex 24 at Daytona, and he also co-drove with me when we debuted our Cayman last season. I’m really excited to see how well our Magnus Racing Porsche does this weekend.”
Sellers, a full-time driver in the American Le Mans Series, is excited to have a shot at victory at the famous New York endurance classic.
“I am very excited to return with Magnus Racing for the Six Hours of The Glen,” said Sellers. “I have always wanted to win at Watkins Glen and Magnus offers that opportunity this weekend. They have proven over and over again that they are an incredible team and have everything needed to win races! When I received the call asking if I could drive with them for the Six Hour it was an easy decision. John and Craig are a great duo and I am proud to be joining them.”
The Sahlen’s Six Hours at the Glen will be tape delayed on SPEED Channel, with the broadcast of the entire six hours of the race beginning on Saturday, June 4, at 4:30 PM ET. Fans of Magnus Racing can follow the team throughout the weekend on Facebook and twitter.
