Our inaugural visit to VIR this year was filled with excitement. Inclement weather started the weekend off, and the early Saturday session had snow on the racetrack! Fours inches of snow on track wouldn’t keep us from enjoying the track, as the sun did come out and we enjoyed not only perfect temps but the first run at the freshly repaved track. Sharif commented that the new paving should be good for several seconds off lap times. “With several key sections of the track widened, coupled with a perfectly smooth and sticky new track surface that FIA Officials would be proud of, my lap times dropped by 3-4 seconds per lap easily. There is still more time to exploit at VIR…I love it!”, proclaimed Sharif after taking passenger on a brisk 2:01 laptime on worn out street tires and some traffic.
Chin Motorsports again put on a well organized event and we enjoyed the changes VIR has made to improve the track. Our next event will be Chin Motorsports at Road Atlanta on April 5-6,
