Opening Day @ WGI

April 9 @ 8:45 am - 2:00 pm

Watkins Glen Opening Day Update
We are in “countdown mode” for opening day at Watkins Glen on April 9th.  Here is information that will be helpful to you (and me) regarding how this day will proceed.
  • It would be helpful to me if you register for this event at www.clubregistration.net . This will give me a head count and allow you to sign the PCA eSignatures “Release and Waiver of Liability” ahead of time. If you decide at the last minute to come – GREAT – just come.
  • We’ll meet at the Kohl’s Dept. store parking lot in Ithaca, 410 Elmira Rd., Ithaca 14850 (Across from Dunkin Donuts)
  • Try to get there about 8:45 so we have time to sign PCA waivers (that haven’t already been signed electronically) and have a quick drivers meeting.
  • We’d like to leave here between 9:30 and 9:45 so we can get to WGI by about 10:30. Here is our route: Touring route is listed below.
  • Remember to purchase your ticket (one per car) for the tour of the track ONLINE from WGI. If you don’t purchase ahead of time, then it will cost you more and will cost us time. Apply discount code WGISPECIAL to reduce the cost per car from $25 to $20. Additionally – WGI requires that each person print out their own WGI waiver, General Liability, ahead of time, and bring it with you to the track. But don’t sign them until you are at track. Here is the link to get to those waivers; https://www.theglen.com/events/opening-weekend/
  • Our assigned time to tour the track is 11:00.
  • Our CNY event ends after we finish touring the track.
  • After our track tour I always like to take a drive around the original circuit. If you’d like to join me you’re welcome to do so.
  • I’m going to be hungry by then so I’m planning to go to Nichols BBQ in Watkins Glen. If you’d like to join me then indicate how many are in your party in the OPTIONS section on www.clubregistration.net , that way I can make a reservation and give them a head-count.
See you April 9th!
