IndyCar date for Watkins in discussion

WATKINS GLEN--As IndyCar looks to replace Boston in its 2016 racing schedule, Watkins Glen International (WGI) has been in discussions to possibly fill the void. However, there is nothing officially in place as of Monday, May 9. The Empire State Region Ferrari Club has already booked the track and plans to run their event during the discussed IndyCar date of Labor Day weekend.
WGI President Michael Printup confirmed he has talked with IndyCar President Jay Frye about bringing IndyCar racing back to the Finger Lakes for a little over a week. While Printup did not indicate how talks were going, he said a decision is expected by the end of this week.
IndyCar is looking to fill the gap which falls on Labor Day weekend this year. This is the same weekend the Ferrari Club of America is scheduled to hold their annual event at WGI. Regional Director for the Empire State Region Ferrari Club of America Wales Shao saidMonday that the Ferrari club "will most definitely be returning to Watkins Glen during the Labor Day weekend."
Printup said IndyCar's initial request was for Labor Day weekend, but nothing has been confirmed. He added the track would work with the Ferrari club and IndyCar to make the event work if IndyCar does decide to return to Watkins Glen.
