Opening Day at Watkins Glen… the unofficial start to the driving season.

We will meet at Eastview Mall, Victor NY, in the parking lot near Macy’s starting at 9:00.

EASTVIEW MALL MAP

The Driver’s meeting will begin around 9:30 for an estimated 9:45 departure.

We will be taking a scenic ride through the Finger Lakes (Canandaigua Lake / Keuka Lake / Waneta Lake) countryside on Porsche friendly roads. The trip to WGI should take about 2 hours with a “quick” break half way.

Once at Watkins Glen International, a representative from WGI will collect $25.00 from each car. The $25.00 covers the cost of three pace car lead laps of the track.

Be sure to have CASH, they don’t take checks or credit cards. Proceeds from the 2020 Opening Weekend will benefit Watkins Glen International’s RACE (Racing and Community Enrichment) Foundation.
