Super Trofeo North America Virginia International Raceway
Virginia International Raceway (commonly known as "VIR") is a road course located in Alton, Virginia, near Danville. It is less than a half-mile from the North Carolina/Virginia border just outside Milton, North Carolina on the banks of the Dan River.
Recently chosen as one of Car and Driver Magazine’s top six road courses in the nation, VIRginia International Raceway is a multi-purpose road course offering professional and amateur auto and motorcycle racing, as well as a wide range of track events. Each year, VIR draws tens of thousands of spectators for some of the best road racing in the country. Its uphill Esses and sharp elevation changes not only make it a fan and driver favorite, but have also established it as a prominent testing facility for the automotive industry.
VIR opened in 1957 as one of the country’s first permanent road racing circuits. Recognizing greatness, the 3.27-mile track has remained exactly the same since, with the only change being widening some places to offer safer run-off room.
The rest of the property, however, has gone through quite a transformation since its humble beginnings.
VIR as we know it today began to take shape when new owners had a vision of something bigger and reopened VIRginia International Raceway in 2000 with world-class facilities and resort amenities. Since then, VIR has received international acclaim and rave reviews as one of the most exciting road courses in all of motorsports.
