The Zone 1 48 Hours Driver Education at Watkins Glen began in 1975. Continue the tradition and join us for the 47th consecutive year (almost) on June 11-13, 2021. Watkins Glen International is the continuation of a road racing tradition dating back to 1948, when sports cars raced on the 6.6 mile course through the village of Watkins Glen. The permanent road course was built in 1956 and has remained the home of a great racing tradition for 55 years. Pricing and scheduling will be dependent upon COVID rules in effect at the time registration opens. We will have in-car instruction at this event. COVID protocols will be in effect.
We will maximize track time by adding an extra hour of track time on Friday and Saturday by keeping the track open until 5:30 pm for 26 hours of hot track throughout the weekend.
There will be expanded passing in the Instructor Run Groups throughout the weekend. PCA National Instructor Training will occur on Friday for those who qualify with a referral from their region’s chief instructor.
àFriday is still instructor day. However all drivers in the white (intermediate), black and red run groups will be accepted to drive on Friday. The intermediate group will be given four driving sessions on Friday.
Not only great driving, great instructors and a great track, but there’ll also be Zone 1 swag for all registrants who attend.
Don’t miss the Friday evening track walk available to all registrants. Saturday and Sunday will be run in the traditional DE format with the track open until 5:30 PM on Saturday.
We will also allow for early trailer drop off beginning Thursday evening from 6-8PM. There may be camping at the track from Thursday night through Saturday night for those who are interested.
