    I was there in '12 or '13 after I got my 2012 SRT8. Not sure which year but had a great time. So now since I'm eligible after getting my Cat, I will go again.

    they told us they wont either.. it was explained to the group that they don't want people at the event who are waiting or couldn't get one to get all PISSED when see them being built to just get beat on at events.

    Curious on why you thought it was "ok"?

    Are you only doing paced laps for this event?
    I've been to VIR numerous times and I love the track.

    I can kind of understand that. They should have used their preproduction models then!

    it was booked solid.. 3-4 over booked per team IMHO.. lots of time spent sitting around waiting on turns, only auto cross and Road courses were available... no mini drag strip loop I read about elsewhere, for us it was only paced laps, one kid on our team totally goofed off on the auto cross costing our entire team the win by 1.5 seconds overall< he was a guest driver and not a buyer too... only got in three cars in AM for 2 laps each on road course.. and 2 in the afternoon.. that's it... ten laps and ya only hit the straight-a-way once between the two laps... oh, I was lucky to get a hot lap in a Challenger.. that was coolest part of day... it was last day of event and I think they wanted to get packing up..... we had awards and were pushed out the door by 4pm..

    I was with a group on the Tuesday VIR session...some asshat kid was acting a fool with the car and literally overran the course...twice. It was overbooked as well and not as much fun as previous years. The pace cars were a lot slower and the wait was longer between runs. Still fun, not as much fun as before.

    I went by the track here in Juliet and I think there were probably only 15 cars parked there for the event. tomorrow is not sold out so maybe we will have a low attendance day. And get more seat time

    Is VIR probably the best track to go to? Trying to decide myself based upon my location and schedule. About an 8 hour drive for me one way. :oops:
