Can-Am Challenge BMW Club Race -Watkins GlenWatkins Glen International
About this event
Please join us September 23rd thru 25th for the Joel Ajavon Memorial BMW CCA Club Race weekend at Watkins Glen - this will be a National points event.
Come on out and represent your country in the Can-Am Challenge! It will be Team USA vs Team Canada in part 2 of our event series: Mosport in July and Watkins Glen in September. This year we’re ramping up the cross-border competition with the introduction of the BMW Club Racing Canadian-American Challenge. The Can-Am Challenge is a homage to the historic Can-Am series that spanned the Canadian and United States border from 1966-1974. Our Can-Am Challenge is being run at the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, July 29-31, and Watkins Glen International September 23-25. A team-based points scheme will determine the winner and a special Can-Am trophy will be presented for the country that wins the challenge! This trophy will again be “up for grabs” in the 2022 season and beyond.
The Finger Lakes area is beautiful in the fall and Watkins Glen is one of the greatest tracks in North America. BMW CCA Club Racing will once again be running as part of an all-race weekend with the Vintage Racing Group (VRG).
Registration is $695, and includes three days of racing Friday, Saturday, and Sunday! Register now; your card will not be charged unless you turn a wheel on track.
A limited number of garages are available for rental at $150 for the weekend. First come, first served - please reserve them at $0 at the time of registration and pay VRG directly by check before the event.
PLEASE NOTE: Modification to our cancellation policy due to strong demand- if you cancel after September 12, 2022 (so starting 9/13/22 at 12:01am) we need to charge you $250 - this is to ensure we are being fair to those on the waitlist. (info added 9/9/202)
