More Events Canceled!

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."

NASCAR at The Glen Weekend Canceled!

The track has announced the decision has been made to cancel the NASCAR at The Glen weekend.  As a result of the ongoing pandemic nationwide, our NASCAR weekend has been realigned to the Daytona International Speedway road course August 14 – 16.

WGI Statement:

“This is an unprecedented time in the history of our nation and Watkins Glen International,” said WGI President Michael Printup. “The dynamic situation we are all confronting is impacting our daily lives and activities in unimaginable ways. While we are disappointed we will not experience NASCAR in New York this year, as we look broadly at the current pandemic in our country and around the world, we must focus first on everyone’s safety and well-being as NASCAR seeks the best way to continue delivering a remarkable on-track product week after week.”

This doesn't mean our season is over, at the time of this writing we still have four club weekends in a row, starting next weekend, July 18th-19th.  We still need to maintain our contract agreement with the track by providing our services.  We can use all the help we can get, so please join us and help us out!

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.
