Event Description

This is an entire family-friendly weekend event around vintage cars, car racing and vintage VWs.


The weekend coincides with the  U.S. Vintage Grand Prix, September 5-7th   at Watkins Glen International Racetrack (www.theglen.com) .  

The U.S. Vintage Grand Prix is one of the largest vintage motorsports events in the country and feature vehicles from the 1930-1980s. There will be over 400 competitor cars.  The Glen folks are excited to offer the Empire VW Camping Club a group rate for the weekend.  They have reserve sites in “Camping area C” along the Backstretch  for our group so that we are all together. 


Here is the information available and our group rates.


YOU HAVE UNTIL AUGUST 25th FOR THIS RATE of $85 – After that it will be regular price


The group rate applies to the entire weekend camping = $50

The group rate applies to the required admission per person = $35

Children under 19 are free.


We can also double up per campsites so that $50 is split 2-way.


Here is the catch to all of this:


  1. You must contact Rob Roessel at The Glen and mention the “VW CAMPING promotion”
  2. You must tell Rob at registrations time, who will be in the second vehicle on your site
  3. Rob will take your credit card information
  4. Rob will mail out your camping pass and admission tickets
  5. It is up to you to get the camping pass to the second vehicle on your site.
  6. Rob’s number is (607) 535-2486 EXT. 351  
  7. Rob’s email is rroessel@theglen.com



What do you get:


  1. Camping for the weekend on the racetrack
  2. Admission to the track for the weekend
  3. Parade Laps on the race track (Saturday Night)
  4. Double occupancy per site (got to coordinate with a VW buddy)
  5. Access in and out of the racetrack to go to town or site seeing
  6. Small campfires permitted
  7. Dog permitted with 6’ leash
  8. Quiet time at 11PM
  9. Showers and bathroom facilities
