Track of The Month – June 2018

Watkins Glen – USA

The Race Centre’s Track of the Month for June is the Watkins Glen International circuit in the USA.

Situated near the Seneca Lake in New York state, Watkins Glen is a 3.5 mile circuit that first saw racing in 1948. Consisting of 11 corners, ‘The Glen’s’ multiple elevation changes and high-speed sequences give it a flow that is often unparalleled when compared to all other North American circuits. It requires precision and bravery from a driver, with unforgiving walls ready to destroy a race with just the slightest touch.

This year is a historic year for Watkins Glen, being 70 years since the circuit first opened. Over that time, series’ such as Formula 1, Can-Am and Nascar have all graced the track, much to the delight of fans. Nowadays, the prestigious ‘Six Hours of the Glen’ is the circuits annual highlight, and showpiece of the American road-racing calendar.

Come and see Watkins Glen for yourself this month at The Race Centre.
