One Lap Of The Original Watkins Glen Grand Prix Circuit
We went on a little road trip to Watkins Glen this week and the above video is of the old 6.6 mile racing circuit of 1948. Danny Chin did the driving in his Mazdaspeed 3 and I rigged a Sony Bloggie video camera tethered to a stand from a GPS unit. At normal speeds, the lap can be completed in approximately 9 minutes on public roads. We decided to speed up the video to convey a better sense of speed.
Here's some brief history of the Glen:
We've been having tons of fun the past couple days and we've got more awesome posts coming up as well.
Have a great weekend everyone!
