Niagara on the Road II goes to Virginia International Raceway* @ Virginia International Raceway
Oct 28 @ 8:00 am – Oct 30 @ 5:00 pm

We really like this track and NNJJR PCA are the best hosts, so we are going back again this year  This 3-day fully instructed traditional HPDE school is being conducted by the NNJR PCA.  This three day school is open to all run groups.

Registration for the On the Road Trip to VIR will open on TBA.

NNJR, our hosts for this 3-day HPDE, advises us to register early as this event sells out quickly. Registration is done via https://www.motorsportreg.com/  If you do not yet have an account, we suggest you create one beforehand.

Any questions, please contact Rich de Asis.

A little history about VIR:The track originally opened August 3, 1957 and was created by a group of men using a bulldozer. The track had been closed from 1974 prior to its reopening in March 2000. The track was reopened in 2000 by New Yorker Harvey Siegel and Connie Nyholm using a “country club” model. Memberships to the track are sold. Each member of the VIR Club receives track time on member days, tickets to all spectator events, and other benefits. VIR’s membership model has since been followed by other racetracks across the United States.

The track hosted the SCCA National Sports Car Championship from its opening in 1957 until the series’ demise in 1964. The IMSA GT Championship visited VIR in 1971 and 1972. After its re-opening, the AMA Superbike Championship held races at VIR from 2001 until 2010 on the North Course. The Rolex Sports Car Series utilized the Full Course from 2002 through 2011. The American Le Mans Series used the Full Course configuration for its inaugural event at VIR in September 2012 where a new track record was set by Klaus Graf driving the Muscle Milk LMP1 car.

Driving a Maserati 450SCarroll Shelby won the feature race on the track’s inaugural weekend in August 1957. The list of other well-known drivers who raced at VIR during its first incarnation includes Briggs CunninghamRoger PenskeMark DonohueRichard Petty, Bob Holbert, Augie PabstCurtis Turner, Dick Thompson, Peter RevsonWendell ScottBob TulliusJanet GuthrieSkip BarberRicky Rudd, Gene Felton, Denise McCluggage, Hurley HaywoodBrock YatesDon YenkoLance ReventlowDan Gurney and Parnelli Jones.

The track hosts many events throughout the year including the annual Gold Cup Historic Race as well as AMA races, ChampCar Endurance Series, SCCA, NASCAR test days, and local car clubs. Various driving training classes are available on the paved and unpaved (off-road) courses. The site also hosts a go kart track.

Since 2014, VIR has hosted a GT only race in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.
