    That's right!
    Watkins Glen is coming to RaceRoom!

    • Location: New York
    • FIA Grade: 2
    • Opened: 1956
    • Length: 5.43 km
    Watkins Glen International aka "The Glen" has a long history in motorsports.

    [​IMG]

    It was hosting the Formula One United States Grand Prix in the 60s and 70s.

    The layout flows very nicely through the hills of its environment.

    Only the famous Bus Stop Chicane is interrupting the Back Straight.

    [​IMG]

    The close armco's and catch fences define its characteristics.

    Watkins Glen International will become available this December!

    This is awesome news! One of my favourite american tracks now in RaceRoom. Can't wait to drive the FR-US there. :D
    How many layouts will it have? Chicane and no-chicane in both short and grand prix layout?

    Nice!
    Could this by any chance mean Group C will be expanded, what with time being spent inducing Nissan bob or whatever it's called and our @Alex Hodgkinson being a bit of a Group C wiz, is all this culminating in one or by the love of fire breathing monsters, two additions or just another great track and me getting 5 outta 2+2?
    Would love to see the Sauber/Mercedes or Mazda etc. Can we not treat them more as a modern day gathering of some of the most iconic machines to dip their toes in this series, rather than being 100% historically accurate regarding who run what in which year, or sub group inside GC, would just love to bang around the Glen in some of these monsters, as I would with a lot of tracks, just imagine our @Anthony Monteil being let loose on the rotary Mazda, Aaahhhhh pure bliss, lets face it the future is sewing machines, so historical sounds will be the only sounds worth listening too, so why not replicate some of the best from history! Rambling again, nice would have done perfectly, blame @Badgerous , saw the mention of Group C and off I went. :rolleyes:

    Damnit, I just gave you all my VRP in the last sale...

    Superb, and very unexpected - should have seen it coming as it's the same owners as Daytona, but I certainly didn't! No shortage of content suitable for this.

    Great news Sector3!!!! A true gem of a track where any class can race and provide a grade A event. Knock another top requested track off the list.:D

    Love it!

    As much as I like RaceRoom getting unique tracks other games doesn't have, Watkins Glen has been a favourite of mine in every other game I've played it in.
