Summary:

Road racing track with 3.27 miles of banked and flat, off-cambered asphalt. Located in Danville.

Description:

In its original incarnation, VIR lived through the halcyon days of American road racing - 1957 to 1974. Its 3.27 miles fit to a tee author Sylvia Wilkinson's descriptive, your favorite country road in captivity. After winning VIR inaugural race, Carroll Shelby declared. One lap here is like a hundred at Watkins Glen. Competitors dubbed VIR the most challenging circuit in America and with good reason. Only the very best won here - Shelby, Walt Hansgen, Roger Penske, Mark Donohue, Bob Tullius, Bob Sharp. At the same time, every race driver learned from VIR's flowing tangle of climbing, diving, sweeping, tightening, blazing quick, banked, flat, off-cambered asphalt. Every lap was an adventure and once you mastered its myriad complexities, you could win anywhere. VIR was awed, respected, loved. It was a track that made racers, and is doing so again, with a smooth new surface and the comfort and amenities of an exclusive resort.
