Oct 22-23/05 VIR Open track day/GTG

For those of you that dont know every Nov for the last 3 Years I have been going to the Virginia International Raceway (VIR) www.VIR.com

VIR is a 3.2 Mile Road Course that is just a ball to drive , It does not require that you have a lot of HP or even anything done to your car, There was even a crazy man there last year with a rental Focus,You DO need long sleve shirt or jacket and a helmet

Last years cost for Oct 22-23 that gives you 2 30Min sessions in the Morning and 2 30Min sessions in the afternoon both Sat and Sun was 240.00, I think it will go up slightly this year and will post that ASAP

This year i have permission to also have a Focus GTG , This will allow any one to come and just hang out , go have Pizza and tell lies , Some even camp there over night and anyone is welcome to do that as well

Registration will be up next week and it is a first come first surve and it MUST be paid up front , There is 3 classes, beginner , intermediate and get the heck out of the way and take 30 cars in each class

Last year we had i beleive 22 cars on the track in 2 classes and had a very good time , Come on out and have some fun

Tom

Too bad I don't have $240.00. That would be a ton of fun.
