Cars are On Track for Opening Weekend

Laps will Run Rain or Shine Both Today and Sunday; Help Support JDRF by Joining Us This Weekend

Opening Weekend

Cars were already lined up for laps at 9:00 am this morning for Opening Weekend. Laps will run until 4:30 pm this afternoon, rain or shine!

Cars hit the track at 10:00 am sharp to get the ball rolling on Opening Weekend.  Not rain nor wind kept fans from lining up starting at 9:00 am to start the 2011 season at The Glen with laps around our historic road course.  Laps will run today until 4:30 pm and then on Sunday the gates will open at 9:00 am, laps will start at 10:00 am and once again go until 4:30 pm.  The weekend will run as scheduled rain or shine!  For only $25 per car you get 3 paced laps around the 3.4-mile Grand Prix course.  Proceeds from this weekend will benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).  Approximately 40 kids and young adults associated with the group will be at the track this afternoon to enjoy some laps of their own.

This weekend also marks the last chance to save on tickets for the upcoming season.  Save as much as $16 on your purchase by taking advantage of Advanced Sale prices.  The deadline is Sunday, April 16 so time is running out to SAVE!  The WGI retail trailer is also on-site so that you can buy the latest Watkins Glen International merchandise and apparel.  Track Time Photos have returned so that you can purchase pictures of your trek around our legendary twists and turns.

We hope you decide to join us and get the 2011 season off on the right foot.  Not only can your enjoy the thrill of driving the same track as some of your favorite drivers but also support a great cause in the process.
