WATKINS GLEN, NY (AUGUST 4, 2000) - Fans visiting Watkins Glen International this year for the annual NASCAR Winston Cup Series race will see several guest improvements. Shuttle bus service, showers and a midway will all be new additions available for the fans at this year's Global Crossing @ The Glen weekend.
Shuttle buses will be handling the transportation needs for the large audience attending the upcoming race weekend at Watkins Glen. The buses will make stops at Gate 1, the Silver and Red/White/Blue grandstands, the Pyramid Souvenir store, the infield and Gate 7. The addition of the shuttle buses will help fans move throughout the facility and enjoy everything The Glen's 2.45-mile road course has to offer. Buses will be running from 8 am - 6 pm on Friday and Saturday and Sunday from 8 am - 1 pm
Campers attending the Global Crossing @ The Glen will have access to portable showers throughout the entire weekend. Shower facilities will contain private areas for men and women. Showers will be in operation from 7-11am and 4-8pm on Friday and Saturday. On Sunday showers will be in operation from 7 - 11 am. The shower facilities will be located between sections B and D of the reserved camping area.
"We've received numerous requests from our camping customers asking for access to shower facilities," said Sperber. "The installation of these shower units will help us to provide a short-term solution for our guests until other arrangements and facilities can be constructed."
Also new for the weekend is a carnival-like midway area. The midway, which will offer games for both children and adults, will be free of charge. It will be located outside the track near Gate 6 in section H. The midway will be entertaining fans from 3-9 pm on Friday and Saturday.
Tickets for the Global Crossing @ The Glen are available. For ticket, camping and additional information, please contact the Watkins Glen ticket office at 607-535-2481 or log on to the official web site at www.theglen.com.
