If it’s September, this must be Watkins Glen

Back again for my favorite racing weekend of the year, in beautiful and historic Watkins Glen, New York. We were blessed with perfect weather, endless cars, sights and sounds, and plenty of beer and delicious local food. The activities kicked-off on Friday with the downtown Grand Prix Festival celebration. On Saturday and Sunday we headed up to the track for the SVRA US Vintage Grand Prix/SpeedTour. Here are a few photos, with more to come. Enjoy! TJ….2022
