I heard a roomer that Watkins Glen planning started months ago... has anyone posted anything about Watkins Glen yet? I am starting to get the itch already, but boy that will be a long drive for me this year... about 10.5 hours.

I haven't seen anything "official" yet, although AC II did indicate there may be a Fiero's At The Glen gathering, again this year. I know I'll be attending opening day and it would be nice if we could get a bunch of Fiero's together, even if it's on an informal basis. WGI is planning a Mark Donohue tribute weekend, including laps on opening day - Opening Weekend at WGI Features Ticket Savings and Mark Donohue Tribute - Watkins Glen International: http://www.theglen.com/news/track_news/552213.html
I'm just waiting for approval from the event founders before I post a link to the info page. The lineup of activities looks very similar to the format from two years ago which I thought was a very good time.
Hey, the Porsche club had a Solstice driver tag along with them last year.
Can we tag along too??
I hear you have to have fenders though....
Just kidding. Actually the Glen is one of my favorite tracks in the country. I wish I could haul my Fiero up there for some laps. We will be back at the Glen over the 4th of July weekend for the GP this season.
I was talking to a few of the Toronto area Fiero owners and a number of them expressed an interest in making it to this event sometime. I'll be talking to a few again in a couple of weeks. Maybe we can make it happen. Are there any firm dates yet?
I am still hoping to make it, although I am getting down to crunch time with having my Fiero ready!!
I have the front brakes and shocks done, fixed a bad tranny fluid leak, and today the car is in for it's NYS inspection! Wish it luck! I think it should pass, but who knows what the garage might find. Once back, I still have to address the ignition system. If that all goes well, and nothing else unexpected happens I think I will be good to go!
