Or start making your U.S. travel plans for next fall. I'm forwarding this from a Canadian Alfa club e-mail.
The October / November issue of ARCC update, includes a note regarding the 2005 Watkins Glen Grand Prix Festival and the Zippo Vintage Grand Prix which will take place Sept 8, 9, and 10 of next year.
A feature event of this weekend (on Sept 9) is the Zippo Tour de Marque. In 2005, the featured Marque is Alfa Romeo.
Direct participation in the Tour de Marque is limited to 100 Alfas. The registration fee of $130 US may seem costly, but the package does provide good value considering all of the things it includes. Specifically the registration fee gets each participant two general admission weekend tickets, a brunch for two, preferred parking in town and at the track, and parade laps of both the current race track and the original Grand Prix layout. (By the way, the original Watkins Glen Grand Prix was won by an 8C 2900 Alfa.)
Please consider this opportunity carefully, and if you can attend and want to participate in the Tour de Marque, please register with them as soon as possible. Our only hope to participate in the Tour de Marque event is to register early!
Of course, anyone can attend the Grand Prix Festival and the Vintage Grand Prix on the basis of a last minute decision, so if you can't register for the Tour de Marque now, you can still make the trip and see all of the events.
