Audi Club NEQ: Opening Day at Watkins Glen International Raceway


9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Event Type

Enjoy Opening Day at “The Glen”, with the Audi Club of America Northeast Chapter and Audi Rochester.

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to drive on one of the most famous road courses in the world? Well now you don’t have to wonder any more. Join us and drive the track with fellow Audi enthusiasts under controlled conditions behind a pace car. If you are an NEQ track veteran you already know what it’s like to drive the Glen at speed. But what’s it like at street speeds with your family in the car?

Every year Watkins Glen International (The Glen) holds this opening day fundraiser to kick off the racing season. The price of admission is a donation to the Watkins Glen R.A.C.E Foundation. The mission of R.A.C.E. (Racing And Community Enrichment) is to meet the needs of local underserved populations with a focus on youth-oriented support.

The day will begin at Audi Rochester on West Henrietta Road where you will receive a boxed breakfast and have a little time to socialize, from a distance of course, and then caravan to the “The Glen” where we will line up and be escorted via pace car for 3 laps of this world-famous race course. Upon exiting the track, because of COVID, the group will be escorted off the property. If you chose, you may return to do more paced laps on our own by purchasing tickets on line at opening day event. Or spend the rest of the day exploring the Watkins Glen area and enjoy the natural wonder of the area or visit the many local wineries.

We’ll be sharing the event and sign-up link soon. The cost for the event will be $25.00 with a $20 donation to the R.A.C.E Foundation and $5 towards administrative fees. Audi Rochester is graciously providing breakfast at the dealership for all those who want to start out from there. See You At The Glen!
