2020 U.S. Vintage Grand Prix, A SpeedTour Event
Since the first SCCA “Grand Prix” at Watkins Glen in 1948, competition at “The Glen” has been an astounding success story, a story which continues to be expanded seven decades later. The annual Grand Prix Festival, held on Friday in the village of Watkins Glen, commemorates the first sports car races that took place on a 6.6-mile street course that still exists today. The high point of the Festival is a reenactment of this landmark event with over 100 SVRA race cars driving the original course to the cheers of 20,000+ spectators.
SVRA’s U.S. Vintage Grand Prix is one of the largest and most popular events on the Watkins Glen schedule, routinely drawing hundreds of vintage race cars from all eras, makes and models. The weekend features large fields and great competition in all of SVRA’s race groups. The Trans Am Series presented by Pirelli and International GT Series will once again join the weekend festivities. Join us and enjoy a great racing weekend, both on and off of the track.
