Item #: 5
The highest bidder will arrive at Watkins Glen International Raceway in the summer of 2019 and meet BMW Certified Instructor and racer, David Palermo. Take a tour of the garages and pits as well as meet other drivers and their machines. Sit shotgun with David as you experience the ride of your life in his 1973 Corvette V8 powered Datsun 240Z. Enjoy a 20 minute session along the historic 3.4 mile track reaching speeds in excess of 100 mph!

Want to drive yourself and take your own car on the track? Follow the pace car for the “Thunder Road Tour” which is offered May – September, there is a fee of $30 (Purchase your Drive The Glen pass for $30 at The Shop, 2 North Franklin Street, Watkins Glen or at Gate 2, Main Track Entrance). Experience the 11 turns and 100’ + elevation changes as you turn through the esses onto the back straight, thread the inner loop followed by the Carousel turn and the famous “boot” eventually turning onto the front straight and passing the start finish line.

And since no racecar event is complete without champagne, enjoy a mathusalem (6 liter bottle) of Pol Roger Brut NV from France!
