"Laps@Lunch" event at USVGP at Watkins Glen- All Caterhams invited!

Recommended Posts

We hold our "Laps@Lunch" event every year on Sunday during the lunch break at the US Vintage Grand Prix at Watkins Glen International. This is a free opportunity to do brisk paced laps on the 3.2 mile Glen road course. In conjunction with WGI we offer our Superformance and Caterham customers and other invitees the laps at no cost; only your general admission ticket is required. This will be on Sunday September 12.


The event allows passengers and no helmets are required. The pace car driver (whom we know) gives us a pretty brisk tour but not 10/10ths so no worries about an "off". 


Details about the USVGP are here:  https://www.theglen.com/events/hilliard-u-s-vintage-grand-prix/  If you have never attended a USVGP it is a great time, all areas are open save for the hot pits so you can wander the paddocks see the race cars up close and personal. The Grand Prix Festival in town on Friday is a ball with the car show on the closed Franklin Street and at 5 PM the race cars driving from the track to line up on Franklin for the "Old Course Recreation" event where the vintage racers run the original 1948 street course at "paced" speeds that exceed the speeds of the 1948 cars! The LOONYs (Lotus Owners Of New York) have a special parking area on Friday that will welcome Caterhams (the Lotus Ltd. president has had a Seven for 25 years) but reservations are required so let us know if you want details.

Please join us for this event. As indicated there is no cost other than your admission ticket. Please email rick@timemachinesauto.com to indicate your plan to attend. We will return details on where to meet, etc. We meet up by 11AM to sign the required waivers and then line up on Seagraves Road to await our out lap. We meet in paddock #3 as per this map: https://www.theglen.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/1009/2021/01/05/WGI_19_Vintage_Map.pdf   Look for the 15' "SUPERFORMANCE" teardrop flag and some Superformance Cobras.


We look forward to a good turnout of Caterhams. Hope to see you there.

Too bad you won't be able to make it... You could see the wheels and tires you sold me on the car!


I'll be there tomorrow!  I took my 89 Esprit for the LOONY Rendeavous  on Friday and this morning I made the trip home to change cars and brought the Caterham back for tomorrow's event.


Can't wait!
