Watkins Glen 10

Sahlen's Six Hours Of The Glen was a 'ten' all around fan experience. The track is an iconic representation of American sports car racing going back to it's earliest days and the spirits of racing's legends can still be felt as you walk the track. What Le Mans is to Europe, the circuit at Watkins Glen, NY is to the Americas.
This is a special place, a world class venue that is a must see, or more accurately put,  must experience if you have any interest in racing.  And for those that don't care so much for the racing it is an absolutely beautiful, pastoral setting to stay for the weekend in your RV or even a tent.  If you go you will want to come back again as this track has got it all. The upgrades made over the years have transformed Watkins Glen International into one of the best road courses in the world.  To me it was hard to believe how much has been done make this place a Ten all the way around from fan experience to driver experience.

I will have the pictures to go with this written description when I return from traveling. I know you will enjoy them!    For now a quick summary of the winners.
