What is an open lapping day?  It's a private track day with a limited number of vehicles present to provide a safe and productive environment for learning a track. 


If you are an advanced solo HPDE driver or a licensed wheel-to-wheel racer, this is an opportunity for you to come gain 8 hours of nearly traffic-free driving at Watkins Glen International.  

Registrations are limited to insure that everyone gets as much track time as they desire, with minimal need to pass other vehicles since the field is so thin. 

Registrations for this day are by vehicle, meaning teams and car shares are allowed.  All drivers, instructors and crew / spectators must be listed with your vehicle registration in order to be allowed into Watkins Glen International for this private track day. The front gate will be checking names before allowing entry. 

Unsure if you qualify?  Want to bring an instructor?  Want to hire an instructor?  Have questions about what vehicles are allowed?  Please email us ASAP and before registering - we have the answers to your questions and are here to ensure you have the best day possible.
