Watkins Glen Grand Prix Festival Meetup 2021

Post by MattC »

The annual meetup at Watkins Glen during the Grand Prix Festival happened this past weekend at Lakewood Winery outside the village. After having limited opportunities for get-togethers last year, it was awesome to see people and their roadsters. We had about 13 cars in attendance with a few new faces, but still missing some of the cars we've seen in the past. Hopefully 2022 brings out even more of us. All in all, it was a great time with great people! A couple pics below and a couple videos.

Good to see Matt and the rest of the (mainly) East Coasters. Thanks to Eddie for T-shirts, Joe B for leading the fun run and to Betsy and family for the special memorial to our deceased friend, Marty. Raise your Heineken and toast - "To Marty!"


Here's a pic of the 10 roadsters that ran the fun run to Champion Park on Kueka Lake (Yes, that is a Fiat and a Dune Buggy :) )

We missed you at the spit and buff, Gary but fully understand the need to get home. I haven’t seen the Merkin in many years. Haven’t look in the car for it either. Hopefully it’s aging well since the time I fondled it….

As I found out this year, you just never know where it is until you find it..........

Great to see you and Sue as usual, hope to be able to spend more time in the Glenn next year. Car ran great both there and home.
