Pick Your Plan: Put Only $25 Down to Secure - or - Pay Half Now and Half Later
WGI Will Cover Processing and Shipping Fees:
If fans renew their tickets by October 29, they will once again be able to save up to $15 on a single ticket by taking advantage of advance sale prices. Looking for another way to save money? The Glen has you covered. Not only will fans save with advance pricing and have greater flexibility with the payment plans available to them, but the shipping and processing fees will be paid by WGI - which is another savings of up to $15. The offer to cover the cost of shipping and processing will not last past the renewal period and is a sign of appreciation for fans continuing to spend their summers at our historic road course.
Payment Plans Available:
In 2009, WGI introduced the 50/50 Payment Plan, and race fans that renewed their tickets or camping were thrilled with the new payment option. We continued the plan in 2010 and will offer it again for the upcoming 2011 season. We have also enhanced the payment plan program and will also offer a new Pick Your Plan option that provides flexibility on a four-part payment schedule that fans can create. If fans renew by October 29th they can put down as little as $25 to secure their ticket package for the 2011 season.
Not only does this new plan make it more affordable than ever to confirm seats and camp sites for next season but also provides additional flexibility to the race fans who may want to spread out their payments. Fans have until April 17, 2011, to complete their four-part purchase. Renewal customers can still choose to pay half now and half on February 4th with the 50/50 Payment Plan. All renewal orders must also be postmarked before the October 29th renewal deadline. Both of these plans can be used to renew for the Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips at The Glen, August 11-14, or any other event weekend at WGI with advance sales. All orders via the payment plan are only available by credit card.
Family Friendly Options:
Bring the whole family, the extremely popular Kids Free program returns as Kids 15 and under are Free during the 30th Running of The Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen, SCCA Glen Nationals, and U.S. Vintage Grand Prix weekends. The free offer doesn’t apply during the NASCAR race weekend however, the McDonald Family Grandstand will still offer a weekend reserved ticket for kids 15 years and under for only $20. New in 2011 – access to The Bog Hospitality for kids 15 and under on Sunday, August 14, is only $25! Kids can enjoy a full weekend of racing that includes a reserved grandstand seat, Sprint Vision screen view, high-end trackside bog hospitality, cold pit access, and driver Q&A’s for only $45 (cost of the grandstand ticket included).
Upgrades or Relocations:
Fans that renew by the 10/29 deadline will also be able to upgrade or relocate their seats (or camping) during the upgrade and relocation period, November 13 – 17. Fans interested in taking advantage of this can call the Upgrade/Relocation Hotline at 866-461-(RACE) 7223, during those four days, from 9am to 9pm.
