Description

One of America’s greatest race tracks, Virginia International Raceway (VIR) is nestled in the beautiful rolling hills on the state line between Virginia and North Carolina. Considered one of the most challenging tracks in North America (if not the world), the track’s 17 turns over 3.27 miles are acclaimed by drivers from all racing disciplines. While the track layout has never been altered since its inception in 1957, several sections have been widened to better accommodate passing. VIR is a track that will take time to master; there is speed to be found all over the track and, given its considerably narrow run, mistakes will cost you. Variety is everywhere too; from the long straights where power is king to the Oak Tree corner, a lap of VIR feels like a journey. In the early years, you could find racing greats like Carroll Shelby and Richard Petty taming these turns. Today, VIR remains a vigorous and unforgettable challenge for cars and drivers of any age.
