What's coming up next at The Glen?  Mark on your calendars:

CLICK HERE to sign up to work the Hooked On Driving/ CM Motorsports event.

All specialties, not just F&C are encouraged to use our event sign up website, MotorsportReg. 

It is highly recommended that the members who will be working these events go to motorsportreg.com and sign up for the event.  By doing so, the specialty chiefs will know how many workers will be in attendance for the events and do any necessary pre-event planning.  This will also enable the worker support staff to have adequate supplies on hand for the debriefings and servicing the workers while they are working on station.

September RSI Membership Meeting

RSI Officers would like to get a head count on who is planning on attending the scheduled RSI September meeting.  As a general reminder, the bylaws states that there must be four (4) officers and/or Board members and at least ten (10) members present to have the meeting.

As reported in the August 2020 RSI Newsletter, the RSI Officers are planning on holding the September RSI Membership Meeting on September 19th, at 12:00pm.  The location of the meeting will be at the Track Support Building.

In case of inclement weather, we will move the meeting to the garages.  In addition to regular meeting business, nominations for all up-coming vacancies will be taken from the floor.  As you can see, your participation is vital to the continuation of our organization.

We hope to see everyone there.  Once again, RSI Officers are requesting that you RSVP, using our MotorsportReg site, to those who are planning on attending the Membership Meeting.

More Events Canceled!

SVRA US Vintage Grand Prix Weekend Cancelled!!  See SVRA's statement below:

Dear Fellow SVRA Racer,

After very careful consideration, I’ve made the difficult decision to cancel the US Vintage Grand Prix at Watkins Glen, scheduled for September 9-13, 2020.

We’ve worked diligently with New York State officials, the Governor’s office and the track to address every imaginable aspect of health and safety for our staff and participants. Even after arranging for COVID-19 testing at the track for everyone, we’ve been unable to find a manageable solution for the travel restrictions and quarantine requirements imposed by New York State.

Please take every necessary precaution to ensure the continued good health of your family and yourself. I look forward to seeing you at a race soon.

Best Regards,
Tony Parella
Parella Motorsports Holdings


Ferrari Challenge and GT World Challenge Weekends Cancelled!!!

Announced today by WGI was a cancelation of another two events on our calendar:  Ferrari Challenge and GT World Challenge weekends.

WGI Statement:  "As a result of the ongoing pandemic, the Ferrari Challenge and GT World Challenge events at Watkins Glen International have been canceled.  Additionally, the Hillard US Vintage Grand Prix will be run without fans in attendance.

While we are disappointed that we will not see our racing fans at The Glen this year, we must prioritize the health and safety of our attendees, competitors, and staff. "

IMSA Sahlen's Six Hours of The Glen Canceled

The IMSA Sahlen's Six Hours of The Glen weekend at WGI has been canceled. The series has decided to realign our event to Road Atlanta. 

 WGI has released this statement: "We are disappointed we won't see our fans in New York this summer, but fan safety and well-being are our top priorities."

Event Status Reminders

The RSI Officers would like to remind everyone, please do not go by any social media posts or websites from sanctioning bodies regarding event statuses and only go by what RSI officers post on the Facebook page and/or on the RSI website. While it seems official from ChampCar, WGI and RSI have yet to be informed of any cancelation and we are still on schedule to working their event on June 26th-28th. If that should change, we will announce it to the membership on the RSI website and the Facebook page.
