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

I live right down the road from the place. I probably will make it out. Do you have to pay the 240 dollars to get in, or just to race? Cause right now, as much as I want to, money is a little tight to pay that much money to race or get in.

On another note, where the banquet is being held (The Institute for Advanced Learning and Research) is where I took some highschool classes at. The place is pretty hot. Like, half the building is made of glass.

For those that want to go there is NO charge to come hang out

If you can find some one wanting to race but done have enough split the days with some one else one take Sat one take Sun and split the 250.00 to 125.00 just a thought

Motels are tuff to get because of Maitinsville Race that weekend so get them early
