Event: 'Holiday Laps @ VIR'

Driving Event
Autocross, Road racing, Drag Racing, etc...
Date: Friday, December 01, 2017 At 05:30:00 AM
Duration: 1 Day

12/01 Holiday Laps at VIR – Join us on a Day Trip to Virginia International Raceway (VIR) to exercise our cars on the full road course.  Meet at Greenbrier Mall to depart at 5:30AM on our way to Danville and expect to be back in Hampton Roads around 7:00PM.  The cost is $25 per session and the norm is to purchase 2 sessions at the gate with proceeds benefitting the Salvation Army of Danville.  Each session lasts 15 to 20 minutes which is enough time to get a feel for the track and really test the performance of both you and your car.  More information can be found at http://virnow.com/events/holiday-laps-2017/.  A sign-up sheet will be at the November Business Meeting or by emailing myorange07c6@cox.net.

 

Here is an update on the Beachcombers Trip to Virginia International Raceway (VIR) on Friday, December 1st.  We currently have a large group of 22 cars signed-up, so the following details / tips are provided:

 

 

  • Meet at Greenbrier Mall at 5:15AM to Depart by 5:30
  • For western members, meet at the Suffolk Hardees on Rt. 58 by 5:45AM and drop in line as the caravan passes by
  • If you have a two way radio bring it set to Channel 5
  • We will make a pit and gas stop at the Shell Station in South Hill to top off before continuing to the track
  • If you want to set your GPS, the track address is 1245 Pine Tree Road, Alton, VA 24520
  • Track sessions are $25 each, pay at the gate to receive a wrist band ( many purchase 2 sessions)
  • Each track session lasts 15 – 20 minutes
  • There is down time before and between sessions, so you might want to bring something to minimize potential boredom
  • Minimize the loose items in your car so you don’t have projectiles while going through the turns
  • The track concession stand will be open but gets crowded at the noon break
  • Recommend bringing your own water, snacks, etc.

 

I am keeping an eye on the weather, both here and Danville since the forecasts have been changing over the last two days.  If there is a need to cancel the trip due to weather, I will send out an email no later than 2:00PM on Thursday.

 

If you haven’t signed-up, but are interested in going, just come join us.

 

Here is hoping for a good day.  If you have an questions, give me a call.
