Group52 was started in 2004 by Gary Moore and Mark Taylor; as a place for very experienced Drivers, Instructors, Race Car drivers and Race Teams to go and practice their driving skills at Watkins Glen International, without interference from inexperienced drivers or people just looking for fast cars to ride in. The events are by invitation only, meaning that you must by invited to come drive with us by current Group 52 members who must vouche for your driving abilities. Group52 has become one of the premiere driving events in the country. The Clothing and accessories shown here are available at the Group52 events or on this web site only. Our original logos and designs change with every event. There are stock designs that are always available and most of those are shown here. If you see Group52 designs that aren’t shown here, they were probably very limited editions that were handed out or sold at specific events. And after 2 to 3 events a year, since 2004, there are a lot of those. There were other mascots, in the beginning, but over the years, Jack has become the official mascot of Group52.
