Race fans can camp worry-free at Watkins Glen International during the Camping World Grand Prix at The Glen. WGI announced several new services for guests to help make their weekends hassle-free and enjoyable. In addition to all of the useful services, WGI is also providing camping fans with entertainment. Fans camping on the grounds at WGI can enjoy their own Fourth of July celebration with a fireworks spectacular at 9:45 PM on Friday.
AAA will provide fans with free on-site service throughout the event weekend. The company will provide all fans with services similar to what they provide to customers on a regular basis. They will assist fans in the event of a lockout, flat tire, dead battery, or other car emergency. If a fan has a problem with his or her car, simply go to the nearest Guest Services kiosk and ask if AAA can help with your problem. AAA membership is not required for fans to take advantage of this service.
United Site Service has also teamed with WGI to help make the camping experience at WGI more enjoyable. Through this service, fans are able to rent their own private portable restroom and arrange to have their RV water tanks pumped. Rent for a private portable restroom is $80 per restroom, per weekend, and includes portable toilet paper and fresh deodorizer. Reservations must be placed in advance for private portable restrooms. RV pumping is $35 per service, and no reservations are required.
A service truck will travel throughout camping areas every day, at which point in time campers may ask to have their RVs pumped. For more information on this service, please call 800-791-8748 or visit online at www.UnitedSiteServices.com/speedway and click the link for Watkins Glen International.
Lastly, WGI has a new Town Hall to help bring comfort and hospitality to campers throughout the Camping World Grand Prix at The Glen event weekend. There will be two Town Hall structures located within camping areas, and both will have large banner flags so fans can see them from a distance. One town hall will be located in the Gate 7 camping area, and the other will be located within Camping Section D. Each town hall location will have an information booth and staff member to help answer any questions, an ambulance and paramedic, a fire truck, a law enforcement officer, and an ice truck. The town hall locations will be open 24 hours a day to provide guests with services whenever necessary.
