Italian Car Fest


Watkins Glen Grand Prix Festival
Alfa Romeo is the Featured Marque
"Alfa 2020"
Sunday, September 29th, 2020

September 11, 2020 will see Watkins Glen, NY, filled with Alfa Romeos for the annual Grand Prix Festival. In addition to Alfa being the featured marque for the Stone Bridge Drive Tour de Marque event on Friday, there is a special day-long Alfa-only event on Thursday — the FLX Alfa Romeo Show and Journey to The Top.

All Grand Prix Festival of Watkins Glen "Stone Bridge Driver" events feature a minimum of two laps around the original 6.6-mile road circuit as used from 1948 – 1952. You can experience the thrill of coming down into the Village of Watkins Glen around famed "Milliken's Corner" to the cheers of hundreds of sports car enthusiasts. Wind up Corning Hill and pass the many landmarks along the way, just as the original racers did — in your sports car!!!

The Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA) will also be featuring Alfa Romeo for the weekend races at the Hilliard United States Vintage Grand Prix at Watkins Glen International. This beautiful and accessible road course hosted many Grand Prix and was well-respected for years.

All in all, this is a great weekend of vintage cars, events and racing, and will be a great opportunity to show off our beautiful Italian cars, in a beautiful, historic setting, rich with racing history. The surrounding area offers spectacular scenery around beautiful lakes, wineries, breweries and other craft beverage and food emporiums, great museums and other cultural attractions.

Alfa Romeo Owners Club national chapters and members are invited to join the fun and festivities and represent the vintage and recent Alfa Romeo vehicles. The Thursday "Alfa to The Top" event invites AROC chapters to be represented and participate in that planning.

Featured marque events always fill quickly, so make sure to check the website www.grandprixfestival.com around October 15, 2019 to secure your spot in "Alfa 2020" and "Drive the Old Course!"
