Virginia International Raceway (VIR)

Scenic setting, big elevation changes, and the uphill esses

VIR: Virginia International Raceway. Take a poll of serious track enthusiasts, and their top 5 favorite racetracks may vary in order, but VIR is always included. A well-deserved reputation as one of the best road course venues in N. America. Scenic setting; on-site lodging, dining, and drinking; fantastic track conditions, big elevation changes, and the UPHILL ESSES are just a few of the reasons to love this 3.3 mile, 17-turn lap located between Danville and Alton, VA. On the Chin schedule 5 times a year!
