GNCC Travel Alert
This Weekend’s Unadilla GNCC Running as Scheduled
Alternate driving routes are necessary from the south
New Berlin, Ny. (September 8, 2011) – Due to severe inclement weather in eastern Pennsylvania and New York, it may be necessary for GNCC racers and fans to alter driving routes from the east and south. Flooding situations have occurred in the New Berlin area, closing roads south of Unadilla Valley Sports Complex; however, the situation is expected to peak at approximately 6:00 pm, at which time more information will be made available concerning alternate routes. Until then, the best way to access the track is to approach from the north and west at Syracuse, along I-90, then south on Route 8. Travelers should avoid approaching from the east or south/east.
The Unadilla GNCC will run as scheduled this weekend, unless further announcements are made. Alternate travel routes will be posted as we gather more information on the weather conditions.
Fortunately, the racetrack and parking areas have not been jeopardized by the wet weather. ‘The GNCC crew has been working hard all morning to get everything set up for this weekend’s event. In fact, the track should be in great shape after the rain we’ve gotten here this week!’ said Jill Robinson, owner of Unadilla Valley Sports Complex.
ATVs will compete throughout the day on Saturday, September 10, with 50cc youth classes beginning at 2 p.m., and dirt bikes will race all day Sunday, September 11.
Spectator passes run $15 for the full weekend, with pro pit access and pro autographs at no additional charge. On both Saturday and Sunday, youth riders race at 8 a.m., beginner riders race at 10 a.m., and the top amateurs and the pros race at 1 p.m.
