VIR provides ideal setting for SVRA Gold Cup

"Bucolic Virginia International Raceway was a delightful backdrop for this past weekend’s annual Heacock Insurance Gold Cup SVRA race meet that is fast becoming a top-drawer attraction on the annual American vintage racing calendar. In addition to five first-class professional championship road course configurations, visitors will find, among other things, a go-kart track, autocross course, skid pad, lodge-style hotels and an 1834 plantation mansion that lives on today as a charming but elegant restaurant and pub.

Make no mistake, the place is a driver’s course, challenging and well maintained. The SVRA show used the 3.27-mile, 18-turn “full course,” with its elevation ranging from 130 feet to 40 meters. For some big-name drivers like Al Unser Jr. and Willy T. Ribbs this was their first trip to Alton, Virginia. Several NASCAR stars had only known the track as a deserted facility during a hiatus of nearly 30 years until it was fully refurbished to open again in 2007." Continue Reading

Instead, our personal garages are stuffed mostly with lawn-care equipment and assorted jalopies of lesser prestige. But for three days every year, we caravan down to Virginia International Raceway to establish a pecking order for all the newest performance cars on the market. And while we have to give them back when we’re done, they’re ours for those three days. Let the other guys have their Mangroomers." Continue Reading
