The Grand Ramble May 11, 2024

Volunteer at the Grand Prix Festival of Watkins Glen

The first Stone Bridge Driver event of 2024 has come and gone, and a great time was had by all! If you missed your opportunity to join in the fun this year, keep an eye out for our registration announcement for the May 2025 event after our September Festival.

Brad and Kerri Seibert's 1969 AMC AMX took the GPF First Place award

The Fritz Family 1965 Austin Healey 3000 took the Grand Prix Festival second place award and one GIB GPF Rallye Route Quiz award

The Fritz family 1965 Pontiac GTO took the Grist Iron Brewery Car Show Award

Matt Crowe and navigator John Franzese left early, not knowing that his 1972 AMC Gremlin took the Press On Regardless award - they didn't have mechanical issues, but at the start they shared that without an odometer, sketchy math skills and a recent launch for the car, they weren't too sure that they would find their way for the full length of the rallye, but finish they did!
