Anyone interested in VIR in March?

I'd like to head out and try VIR in March. I am trying to add a new track each year, just to check them out. I have heard great things about VIR North, and they are running the AMA config on Monday.

Not sure if anyone has been there before, but I wanted to try it out. Anyone interested in going?

I'd like to do V.I.R. as well, but later in the year when it is not cold.

I have done VIR a couple of times. Also have raced it. It is one of my favorite tracks. If you can try to do the south course also. It is alot smaller than the north or the Patriot course but it is fun. One key to a fast lap is the last couple of corners and coming onto the main straight. Balls to the wall is all I am going to say.

First two days are South, Monday is on North. I have heard it is a ton of fun! Glad to hear you loved it too.

VIR - Update

Travelers so far are:

Brian (WINK)
Alan Fedderson (The MAN!)
Shane (CBR#32)
Dan (Gixxer6Dan)

Looking for one or two more. This is a three track day weekend, Saturday and Sunday on VIR South, Monday on the AMA course, VIR North.

It would be a great trip to get ready for the new season.

Trying to keep the gas costs down as much as possible, and we still have room.

Post up or PM me if you are interested. (You don't have to ride all three days)
