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!


  1. Its a shame IndyCar canned that race.

  2. I was there for one of them and it was incredible!

  3. U guys prolly drove past my neck of the woods while on your way to the Glen. If your ever in the Middletown area u should swing in for some dirt big block modified races. I race almost every Saturday night during the summer
