I am trying to plan a trip to Watkins Glen, and I want to be able to hike the Gorge Trail.Unfortunately, the park website only says "mid-May 2014" for the opening of the trail and I need a more specific date to book a trip!
For those who have hiked the trail, is it considered a difficult hike?
The Verizon Indy Car Series will return to the Watkins Glen International road course for the first time since 2010, it was made official Friday. 2-4 event is a late addition to the Indy Car schedule, replacing a proposed street race through Boston's Seaport District that never got off the ground.
INDYCAR president of competition Jay Frye was instrumental in securing the date at Watkins Glen at short notice.
Frye, a former NASCAR team co-owner, has worked hard over the past six months to improve the series' relationship with track operator International Speedway Corp., the parent company of WGI."A tremendous amount of thanks goes to track President Michael Printup and his entire staff for their efforts in helping make this a reality in such a short time frame," Frye said.
"Obviously, Watkins Glen has great racing history and it's a track that will showcase the on-track competition and overall excitement level of our series."Frye negotiated the Indy Car Series' return to ISC-owned Phoenix International Raceway earlier this year after an 11-year absence.
The series also returns to Road America at Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, this season.
Although Indy cars have raced at Watkins Glen only a handful of times, the scenic road course in the Finger Lakes region of New York has significant open-wheel pedigree.Watkins Glen hosted the Formula One United States Grand Prix from 1961 to 1980, in addition to Indy car races from 1979 to 19 to 2010."It's fun to race there, it's a beautiful area," Graham Rahal said."Indy Car fans are very loyal and they love tracks like this, so it will be fun.Hopefully we'll get a better crowd than we had the last time we were there.I'm looking forward to it."The track's flagship event since 1984 is a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race scheduled this year for August 4-7.It's not the first time Indy Car has had an abrupt schedule change.
