Fan Walks on Pit Road Highlight of the Fan-Friendly Sahlen's Six Hours of The Glen
Between watching the races on the track, extensive access throughout the facility and plenty of on-track activities, fans attending the 30th running of the Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen, June 3-5, will get a great value with their ticket purchase. All weekend ticket holders will have the ability to meet their favorite teams and drivers while walking around the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series paddock, GRAND-AM Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge garage, and fan walks on pit road. Adult weekend tickets are just $35 and all kids 15 and under are FREE!
Fans will once again be treated to two Fan Walks on Pit Road throughout the weekend. These GRAND-AM Fan Walks provide everyone in attendance with the opportunity to get an up-close and personal look at the cars and stars of GRAND-AM’s top two series moments before they take the green flag. The Fan Walk for the GRAND-AM Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge is open to any weekend ticketholder on Saturday, June 3, from 5:05 p.m. to 5:40 p.m. The green flag for the Continental Tire 150 at The Glen will drop later that evening at 6:10 p.m.
Before the start of the Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen on Saturday, June 4, fans can see a pit stop demonstration by No. 5 Action Express at 12:15 PM while enjoying the sights of the GRAND-AM Rolex Car Series Fan Walk from 11:45 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Pit road will then be cleared for the start of pre-race ceremonies leading up to the start of the 30th running of famed endurance race at 1:15 p.m.
Getting access to pit road only minutes before the start of the Continental Tire 150 and the Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen not enough? No problem! Fans with weekend tickets will also have access to the garage and both paddock areas. This access will provide the chance to watch the crews of Rolex Series and Continental Tire Challenge make the adjustments necessary to help get their cars into Gatorade Victory Lane. The fact that all grandstands, both tailgate zones, and general admission viewing areas are also open to any ticket holder means fans really have an all access pass to fully enjoy the sports car weekend.
