Had a day at VIR for Holiday Laps and what a great experience with your safety first, pay a donation fee for a great cause and drive your car on the track while helping the needy and having a great time experiencing driving on one of the best road course tracks in the world.

We recently camped at VIR for the K&N Race and the facility is fantastic. All the people are very nice and the are is just beautiful. If you get a chance to attend an event at VIR you should definitely do so. Dog friendly and family friendly!

Nice track with recent upgrades - wider in some turns. Paddock area is now paved, which is much better than the previous gravel paddock. Pit boxes are quite small.

We always look forward to racing at VIR. The staff is generally very accommodating and the grounds are well-kept. Ultimately it is the freshly paved 4+ mile race circuit that brings us back. This is one of the great racetracks of North America. If you have a chance to spectate or to drive this track, definitely give it a try.

I've been to this track numerous times and have always enjoyed taking part in the races there. From a racers standpoint, it is a fun and fast driving experience. From a spectator's standpoint, there's really not anywhere on the track you can't see the race from. The facilities are nice and the paddock allows from good team, visitors interaction. The... More

Went to VIR on a Sunday to run go karts. When we arrived around 2:30 we saw dirt bikes using it. An ominous site when you've been driving for an hour to get there. We inquired with the attendant who told us the dirt bikes would be using it until at least 5:00. We waited around for 30 minutes and... More

We've been to the track numerous times, and always love going back. My favorite track is still Watkins Glen, but VIR is #2. Set in rolling hills with red horse barn-like buildings, this track presents a beautiful locale for gear-head activities of all kinds. If you're not staying on-site (I never have, availability is limited), the closest hotels are primarily... More

We went to VIR as a trip to let our 19, 22, and 24 year old kids drive an Arial Atom Race Car on a real racetrack. What I didn't expect was a weekend of continuous racing around the larger track. This included "vintage" race cars, and current BMWs. There was a new race starting every 1/2 hour, and each... More

My father and I went for the weekend to a track day with a sports car club. The repave is awesome! We had such a good time that we will definitely be back. I would even like to go watch a race as a spectator. The lodge was worth the money and very convenient. I wish the ice machine had... More

If you have not been to a race at VIR, put it on you bucket list. Great camping opportunities, or hotel rooms on the site, some right along the track.
