NEXT RACE - Virginia International Raceway

June 21-22

Alton, Virginia
Track: Virginia International Raceway
Race Duration: 2 hours 40 minutes
Circuit Length: 3.27 miles
VIR
VIR offers six track configurations, but IMSA utilizes the Full Course which is 3.27 miles in length. One of the most notable sections of the course, second only to the "Oak Tree" (Turn 11), are the "Climbing Esses" which consist of an initial left up-hill (Turn 7), followed by a right which crests at the apex then drops slightly into a left (T8) which again crests at the apex dropping slightly, and then up into a final left (Turn 9). The complexity and difficulty of this section is multiplied by the incredible entry speed because of a straight section leading into the Climbing Esses. The front straight is approximately 3,000 feet long while the back straight is approximately 4,000 feet long. There is 130 feet of elevation change throughout the course.
