As Glencoe is a small community, parking is at a premium. Once again, the Glencoe Grand Prix is taking extra care to assist residents and businesses with parking options during race day. Just like last year, parking in regular spaces is limited to 2 hours per Village regulations. If you are in a space for more than two hours, you will be ticketed.
