Letter From the CEO

Welcome!  We’re happy to be racing at Virginia International Raceway!

Cars spanning over 75 years of racing and technology will be on the track and on display in the paddocks and garages. Our paddocks are full—rich with race car icons that include:  Alfa Romeo, MG, Ford, Lotus, Chevrolet, McLaren, Porsche, Brabham, to name but a few.

This weekend’s VIR SpeedTour showcases the Trans Am, F4 U.S., FR Americas, SVRA and International GT series. The VIR SpeedTour is one of the most popular race weekends of the year.

This event will be live streamed, too! We invite you, your friends and family to enjoy an enhanced race experience by downloading the SVRA or Trans Am App. The live stream broadcasts offer over 10-hours of real-time race coverage.  In addition, the App provides the event program, race results, late-breaking news and much more.

There are plenty of trackside activities to enjoy. Take some time to check out vendor row, explore a Marathon Coach and enjoy a picnic lunch. Saturday’s Car Show sponsored by Hagerty displays everything from the classics to rat rods and muscle cars.

 I hope that you take the opportunity to meet the racers, crews and car owners and enjoy the various racing series that are here this weekend. Be it learning about the grand history of Virginia International Raceway, meeting a famous driver or getting a rare autograph, your visit to the VIR SpeedTour is sure to be memorable. 

Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines. Let’s go racing!
