Track of The Month – November 2021
Watkins Glen – USA
The Race Centre’s Track of the Month for November 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, originally on public roads!. 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.
Over the 65 years since the permanent circuit was built series’ such as Formula 1, Can-Am and Nascar have all graced the track, much to the delight of fans. Nowadays, the prestigious IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship’s ‘Six Hours of the Glen’ is the circuit’s annual highlight, and showpiece of the American road-racing calendar.
Come and see Watkins Glen for yourself this month at The Race Centre.
