Watkins Glen Grand Prix Festival* @ Watkins Glen
Sep 9 – Sep 10 all-day

Since 1993, the Grand Prix Festival of Watkins Glen presented by Chemung Canal Trust Company has celebrated our heritage of motor racing. Last year, an estimated 25,000 spectators helped us celebrate. As in previous years, a tribute to the Grand Prix races are featured in a variety of events during this all day festival. Events include the Walk of Fame award ceremony, a historical lecture called The Legends Speak, a pre-race Tech Inspection at Smalley’s Garage, as well as several rolling events and two car shows known as the Stone Bridge Driver Events.

The featured highlight of the Festival is a tribute to the original Grand Prix races using the original 6.6 mile road course. Always a crowd pleaser, the Watkins Glen Grand Prix Tribute is designed to recreate the ambiance of the 1948-52 Watkins Glen street races. The race tribute is open to selected Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA) cars participating in the The U.S. Vintage Grand Prix races held at the nearby Watkins Glen International race course on the same weekend as the festival.

If you own a qualifying automobile and would also like to participate in the festival, you are not alone. Nearly twelve hundred festival attendees will choose to participate in the Festival by registering, as driver/navigator teams, in one of seven Stone Bridge Driver events. Each of the participants in these events share two things in common: a passion for driving classic sports cars and a desire to relive some of the excitement of driving on the original 6.6 mile circuit during the festival. Please Note: Only 650 eligible sports and/or classic cars may register for these events and the slots fill very quickly.

At the Grand Prix Festival of Watkins Glen, presented by Chemung Canal Trust, there is something for everyone! Parked along the main streets of the village you will find over 600 classic sports cars of all ages and marques for your enjoyment. In addition to live music, wine tasting, food courts, and assorted other family activities, a variety of vendors of racing items and related Merchandise are provided for your entertainment and pleasure. Oh, and did we mention the fantastic fireworks at dusk?

Tire Rack Street Survival school @ Watkins Glen International Speedway
Oct 15 @ 7:45 am – 4:00 pm

The Tire Rack Street Survival® school is a safe teen driving program designed to go beyond today’s required driver education and give teens across the U.S. the driving tools and hands-on experience they need to become safer, smarter drivers. The school provides trained and qualified in-car driving instructors as well as a valuable classroom experience for each student.
This school is open to permitted or licensed drivers ages 15-21.

The primary emphasis of the Tire Rack Street Survival® is a “hands-on” driving experience in real-world situations! We use your own car to teach you about its handling limits and how you can control them. The students will become more observant of the traffic situation they find themselves in. They will learn to look far enough ahead to anticipate unwise actions of other drivers. As the students master the application of physics to drive their cars, they will make fewer unwise driving actions themselves. They will understand why they should always wear their own seatbelts, and why they should insist that their passengers wear seatbelts, too.

Three parents, including Scott Goodyear, former Indy Car Champion, share their perspectives in this video.

It’s about more than driving – it’s about LIVING!

All Schools $95.

Note to our Street Survival participants, including parents, students, coaches, organizers, and volunteers. While in the current COVID-19 environment, every attempt will be made to minimize the risks of exposure to the virus. Additional information is available on the Street Survival webpage at streetsurvival.org
