Allegheny Region is hosting their annual Watkins Glen driver education weekend on Saturday and Sunday May 5-6,2018. Allegheny Region driver education events always fill up fast, so register early. We would hate to see you on the wait list!
Watkins Glen International (WGI) is located in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York.
Since the opening of the circuit in 1956, WGI has hosted innumerable sports-car racing series races including being the home of the United States Formula 1 Grand Prix from 1961 through 1980. WGI is truly an iconic road racing track that enjoys a well-deserved reputation as being one of the finest road circuits in the world. ARPCA events utilize the full 3.4 mile “Grand Prix” circuit.
Make plans to drive your car on the same track as all of the great road racers throughout history have!
ARPCA is a very active group both on and off the track. Our Spousal Auxiliary will be coordinating off-track activities for those interested in traveling to antique shops, wineries and other attractions unique to the Finger Lakes region over the course of the weekend.
As with many of our driver education events, there will be a Friday lapping day for instructors and select experienced drivers. To see if you qualify to participate in the Friday lapping day, send an inquiry to Chief Instructor Drake Core (chiefinstructor@arpca.)
