Recently chosen as one of Car and Driver Magazine’s top six road courses in the nation, VIRginia International Raceway is a multi-purpose road course offering professional and amateur auto and motorcycle racing, as well as a wide range of track events. Each year, VIR draws tens of thousands of spectators for some of the best road racing in the country. Its uphill Esses and sharp elevation changes not only make it a fan and driver favorite but have also established it as a prominent testing facility for the automotive industry.
TRACK SPECIFIC RULES
- An SA2015 or SA2020 helmet is required for this event. No other helmets will be permitted.
- All convertible vehicles must be equipped with an appropriate roll bar for this event. Note from VIR: Many manufacturers’ roll hoops, roll bars designed for street use (non-racing), as well as roll bars that terminate below the top of the operator’s helmet, shall not be approved. Factory or aftermarket hardtops are not considered to be rollover protection.
- Like all Track Nights, this is an event for streetcars. If you have a waiver from Jack Track to bring a car that is not a streetcar or legally plated kit car, the track has additional safety requirements that the driver must wear a one-piece SFI or FIA-rated driver's suit with a minimum of two layers.
For this Track Event the sessions will be split into two groups.
Group A will be passing anywhere with a point-by. Only drivers with previous track event experience should register for this group. Track Night in America Advanced group participation or multiple events of Intermediate group participation (or equivalent) would be appropriate.
