VIP Experience at Watkins Glen International

September 30, 2023 @ 7:30 am - 4:30 pm

The first VIP Experience at Watkins Glen was a huge success (see Past President John White’s comments). By popular demand, we’ve set up another set of dates before the race season ends!

The Watkins Glen experience with Rich d’Asis was over the top wonderful.  He was a terrific host and the most respected and professional race car driver on the track.  Riding with him was an experience of a lifetime as we took on the course at over 150 mph.  What a thrill! 

There must have been 50 other cars there and chatting with the drivers and mechanics gave us an inside look into the world of high-performance sports cars and how to navigate a challenging track like the Glen.  I would encourage anyone interested in hot cars and speed to sign up for the next event.
