Arrow Watkins Glen Trackday???

I've talk to one rider in my area, Saying that Watkins Glen held trackdays for bikes.

I think he's full of Sh!t. If there was I would of known about it.
I've check a couple of trackdays organizations but no Watkins Glen for this year.

Have they ever held a trackday?

You would have to be crazy to ride there. The guardrails are everywhere and the track is too fast. You would be at top speed halfway through the back straight. Too dangerous if taken to the limits of the bike.



BUT!

On opening day, you can do a paced lap of the track that a friend of mine did. The trick is to stay way back, stop on the side of the track and then gun it.

There is also a huge charity ride around the fourth of july that stops at WGI. They take groups out for multiple paced laps. same trick, hang back and gun it when everyone else is on the other side of the track.
