Maybe it’s the sheer joy of racing on this superb, well-maintained track with its thrilling elevation changes, or imagining they are running with Mario Andretti, Jacky Ickx or Derek Bell, that brings out over 250 racers from all over the USA and Canada to make this Zone 1 Club Race the largest on the PCA Club Racing circuit. PCA members are welcome to attend and perhaps consider how they may make the transition from Driver Education to Club Racing.
Friday will begin the weekend with a full day of race practice and Fun Races/Practice Starts. Saturday will feature 2 Sprint Races for all classes in four race groups. Immediately following the last race, there will be an optional Social Hour with open bar, Dinner, Raffle, and Race Awards Announcements in the Watkins Glen Media Center.
On Sunday, following the morning warm-up sessions, we will have 3 – 60 minute Enduro races that will run back-to-back through the normal Watkins Glen lunch hour. This will allow for maximum participation with no refueling and drivers being able to do the whole Enduro with or without a co-driver or team support. The change also makes for an earlier finish and the ability to get home at a more reasonable time. Tentatively the last Enduro race will end at 12:45 PM with the Pirelli Awards ceremony at 1:00 PM.
Early Registration and hotel reservations are recommended (registration usually opens in April).
