VRG at Watkins Glen

Watkins Glen International

About this event

Vintage racing with VRG at Watkins Glen International. Come join us for three days of competitive but friendly racing at this wonderful and historic track. Open to all vintage racers with a valid vintage license.

NOTE: We will be using the traditional "long course" including the Boot on Friday and Saturday, and the short course on Sunday. We will therefore have practice/qualify sessions on the short course on Sunday morning and races later in the day. We're looking forward to hearing people's feedback after they have had the opportunity to race on the short course! Anyone interested in walking the short track on Saturday evening to get familiar (and help an important cause), please see NOTE 2, below!

NOTE 2: The 2024 Watkins Glen Walk to End Alzheimers will take place on the track and in the pit area after our racing has concluded on Saturday evening. There may be a car show and informal "meet the drivers" associated with the walk, more information to come on how you can participate in the show, in the walk or as a volunteer should you wish, but it is entirely voluntary.
