History will be made at next September’s SVRA Zippo at the Glen event, when the cars and career of the late Mark Donohue will be featured. This will be the first Zippo at the Glen event to feature a driver, rather than a marque.
According to Watkins Glen President Craig Rust, “This tribute is a wonderful addition to what has already become a phenomenal weekend. We are proud to celebrate the career of Mark Donohue and look forward to seeing all of the cars that he raced all in one place, as well as the team members that he raced with.”
Donohue’s career included successes both on ovals and road courses in sports cars, Indy, stock cars and Formula One. Donohue was a two-time USRRC champion, a three-time SCCA Trans-Am champion, a Can-Am champion, IROC champion, winner of the 24-Hours of Daytona, and the Indy 500. More than 25 cars from Donohue’s racing career are expected to participate. Owners of cars with Donohue race history or involvement are encouraged to contact SVRA at (404) 298-3323.
