Event Description

Smart Rally At The Glen 3
July 11th - July 13th, 2014

Please follow the Smart Rally At The Glen group on Facebook!


Once Mike gets back to me with a good line of contact for our ticket requests, he wants folks to purchase tickets from him directly. I'll post that up when I get it - which will be soon. If you don't want to buy early from him, you can buy at the gate. I have no involvement in ticket purchasing.

We're going meet at Walmart in Watkins Glen on Saturday morning (July 12th) at 7:30am. We'll hang out for a little bit, and if anyone wants to go into town (or Walmart) for food and meet us a little later in the parking lot (8:00am), that'll be fine too. By 8:30am, we'll be leaving Walmart to go to the track.

Once again, Mike is waving the track fee, and we're just paying a set price for the Track + Wine Festival; once he passes along the info which I'll pass along to you.

Here's the map from Walmart to Watkins Glen Raceway, via Google Maps. We can meet in Watkins Glen (the town) right on the lake, less than 15 minutes from the Watkins Glen International track. The Walmart will have a big enough parking lot so that we don't crowd some business unexpectedly.

So, meet at Walmart in Watkins Glen, and then drive over to the track for our laps!

The laps will be at 9:00am on Saturday. (Just like last year.)

We will need to get there at 8:45, and (we should) go through Gate 2.
When we get in the gate, take a right, and go behind the grand stand.
There is a crossover gate where you cross the race track.
We will sign waivers that say if we wreck it's on us.
We do our laps around the track.
Then, escorted by Pace Car, we will be led to our parking place.

Saturday will be a free-for-all to enjoy the Wine Festival, go back in to town, do whatever you want, and chill.

Saturday, around 6:00 or 7:00 PM, we will plan a cookout for those who are staying in Watkins Glen State Park - but anyone is welcome to join! (Visitors just may have to park in a visitor lot and walk a little, due to the cars-per-campsite rule.) I am in Cabin 112C, so we could meet at my place or someone else's. I will be making a thread in the not-to-distant-future to RSVP for the cookout and will plan who's going to bring what.

9:00AM on Sunday, for anyone that wants to stay, we will be going to Savard's Restaurant at 601 North Franklin Street, Watkins Glen, NY. We may have to get creative with parking, but I'm sure we can do it. It's not like we take up that much space. The restaurant has been packed in years past, so we'll plan as best we can.

Year 3 is a go!

I just wanted to pass along to everyone that Mike gave me Jeff's info for advanced ticket sales this year.

Shoot me a message if you're interested, and I'll pass along Jeff's info - I just don't want to publicly share it online!

Additionally, you can also buy tickets at the gate the day of the rally - and don't forget, designated driver tickets are available at a significant discount, too.
