Watkins Glen Grand Prix Long Course (The “Boot”)

Watkins Glen International is a motor racing venue found in New York State, USA, near the town of Watkins Glen.Commonly nicknamed “the Glen” (but actually called “Watkins” by locals), Watkins Glen hosted the FIA Formula One World Championship for twenty seasons, from 1961 until 1980. The Glen would also be the last purpose built race circuit to host the United States Grand Prix until the completion of the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas.

The most significant change to the track, a new segment known as “The Boot”, was finished in time for the Formula One race in 1971. The start-finish line was moved to the new pit straight as planned. At the end of the backstretch, after the Loop-Chute, cars swept left into a new four-turn complex that departed from the old layout, curling left-hand downhill through the woods. The track followed the edge of the hillside to two uphill right-hand turns, over an exciting blind crest into a right-hand turn, down and up into a left-hand turn rejoining the old track.

The new layout measured 3.377 miles (5.435 km). With its intrinsic link to the Formula One race, it became known colloquially as the Grand Prix Circuit.

For 1972, the Six Hours sports car race also began using the full “Boot” layout. By that time, nearly all facility improvements were completed, and the pits and start/finish line were permanently moved to the new pit straight.

In 1973, French driver François Cevert, a previous winner at the Glen, died in a crash during practice at the 1973 United States Grand Prix. This led course officials in 1975 to add a fast right-left chicane to slow speeds in the turn 3-4 Esses section. Dubbed the “Scheckter Chicane”, it was eliminated in 1985.
