Watkins Glen International (WGI) announced a new general admission viewing berm in between Turns 1 and 2, increasing the capacity of the facility.
“It is always great when we can make improvements to enhance the overall experience of our races here at the Glen,” WGI President Michael Printup said. “Fans are first, and this new berm is a way to express our gratitude and give them a great view of one of the most exciting parts of our racetrack.”
Looking ahead for the 2019 season, the IMSA Sahlen’s Six Hours of e Glen, NASCAR Go Bowling at The Glen, and the SVRA Hilliard U.S. Vintage Grand Prix headline a season schedule full of the world’s most talented drivers, hottest cars, and most competitive races motorsport has to offer. This summer, WGI will also host the Genesee Summer Concert Series, a free, six concert series, beginning Thursday, June 6 through July 25.
The concert line up includes area favorites such as Virgil Cain and Evan Dillion.
“We are excited to not only bring back our summer concert series, but kick off our relationship with Genesee Brewing Company in a unique way,” Printup remarked. “This is a great chance to showcase what WGI has to offer beyond racing and provide fans with more summer entertainment.”
