As a result of the Coronavirus’ impact on our nation, we have taken actions to protect the safety of our fans, vendors and the stakeholders. The Ferrari Challenge and GT World Challenge weekends at Watkins Glen have been cancelled. Additionally, the Hilliard US Vintage Grand Prix will be run without fans. While we are disappointed we won’t see our racing fans in New York this summer, fan safety and well-being are our top priorities.
Ticket holders will automatically receive a 120% credit in your WGI account the week of August 17th, which can be applied in a single transaction to Watkins Glen International or another NASCAR-owned track during the remainder of the 2020 season and entire 2021 season, subject to availability. Ticket holders may opt for a refund, if preferred. To submit your refund request, click below. For more detail, please see information below.
Please note it may take up to 60 days from the original form submission to process refunds.
Q: What are my other options?
A. We are happy to offer ticketholders an event credit towards any Watkins Glen International event, or any NASCAR-owned track, during the remainder of 2020 or in 2021. Event credits will be in the amount paid for all admissions including but not limited to admission tickets, camping, parking, fan hospitality, pit passes, etc. plus an additional 20% credit on top of your paid amount, and fans can elect to use this credit instead of attending the rescheduled event date at Watkins Glen International.

Event credits or refund requests must be submitted within 30 days following the rescheduled event date announcement.
