    I was at the SRT track day in VIR yesterday. No Hellcats there to drive and I doubt any for the rest of the year. There were 25 owners / drivers yesterday. Only 3 had owned Hellcats (2 Challengers and I was the only Hellcat Charger owner).

    VIR has a decent sized track and with the .75 mile straight away ~120 mph was the fastest speed achieved by me. It was limited by the professional driver you were following. He took it up to 140 mph when he drove with us as passengers.

    I was disappointed that the limited us to that speed. Coming out of the turn we had plenty of time to hit 150 mph and then slow down to 45 mph to make the turn.

    I really wish some Hellcats were there to drive and in hindsight, I'd wait until next year (assuming they'll ever get a Hellcat).

    Doubt Hellcats will be part of the show.

    I like VIR. Enjoyed the Experience when I went a couple of years ago.

    We were there on Tuesday and had a great time. It was my first time on a track so I was busy just trying to navigate the turns and keep up with the instructor! I think 4 people drove there Hellcats to the event. We had a 7 hour drive so ours stayed at home. We learned a lot and met some great car people.

    Rarely but they do show up from time to time. Saw one the first time but wasn't one of the lucky ones to ride in it.
