The Mike Scanlan Memorial
August 19th - 20

Watkins Glen is one of the premier race tracks in the world and certainly the finest in the northeast. The list of legendary drivers that have graced the streets of Watkins Glen and the twists of Watkins Glen International is nearly second to none. The stars of all forms of racing – F1, IRL, sports car, open-wheel, and stock car – have come to The Glen for 60 years and many have left their mark on its history. The track is about three and a half miles long, with eleven turns and several impressive uphill and downhill sections and is known for these challenging elevation changes. The track is situated high on a hillside, with expansive views of Seneca Lake.
The town of Watkins Glen sits at the foot of Seneca Lake, the largest and deepest of New York’s Finger Lakes, in the very middle of Finger Lakes Wine Country. Immediately to the north of the town, on either side of the lake, there are dozens of vineyards each with its own shops with free wine tastings. There are also spas, shopping and museums in the area for spouses who might want to make the trip but not spend a lot of time at the track.
Registration and Tech inspection will take place at the Seneca Lodge on Sunday evening, 8/18 from 3 PM until 6 PM. While this is the preferred option, Tech will also be open Monday morning at the track but timing will be critical, so come Sunday afternoon, relax, check out the other cars and meet your fellow drivers in a relaxed and friendly environment .

Dennis Cohan Car Detailing and Tire Temperature Consultation:
Those of you who attended our New Jersey Motorsport Park and/or our Watkins Glen I events probably already know what Dennis Cohan can do in detailing a car. He has been back to the P21 warehouse and has picked up even more new supplies to demonstrate what these high quality products can do, and to raffle some of them off.
Dennis will also be ready with his pyrometer to measure your tire temperatures and help you learn how the temperature variation between tire and across the surface of each tire can indicate adjustments that will improve your tires’ handling and wear. Dennis can be found in the front of the Kendal garage.
Rooms are also available at the Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel at a special rate for track clubs. You must ask for the "Watkins Glen Car Club" rate.
