    June 16 & 17 @ VIR (NCC + Audi + MB) Info?

    I was just wondering if there was any additional information on the joint Drivers' School at VIR in the middle of June...

    Course?
    Cost?
    Registration info/dates?

    Since the Summit Point Main Circuit school conflicts with two friends' wedding, the VIR event is probably the first chance I'll get to drive a track other than the Jeff with a BMWCCA school...

    Thanks.

    The Audi Chapter's calendar says the application will be available in Mid-March.

    Ah, okay -- I didn't know where to start looking, or which was the lead club on this...

    The phone number for the Sleep Inn is 434-793-6090. There is a brand new Best Western about 1/2 mile west of the Sleep Inn. It has an indoor pool and workout room, but I don't know if it has Speed Channel like the Sleep Inn.
    I don't know the phone number.

    As Steven said, registration should open by next week, cost is $315 (as long as you get the registration in "on time" - otherwise there will be a late fee). We'll be using the Full Course (3.2 miles - lots of fun).

    At first, I was a little confused there between the "Full Course" and the "Grand East" (until I saw the mileage difference) -- the prospect of tackling the "Bitch" turn my first time out at VIR didn't seem all that appealing.

    All in all, it looks like a good time (followed, of course, by a 'cool-off lap' by way of I-40 to Oak Island for a week.)

    PS: how many slots are there, total? (I.E., how hard is it going to be to get in for someone who's never ventured from the Jeff?)

    VIR is a great track. Lots of runoff and nice facilities.
    Bitch isn't as bad as it seems although we won'tbe using it.
    Run groups can easily accommodate 40 cars. There are 3 passing zones, sometimes 4 depending on the school. We will probably use the normal 3.

    I take it that details aren't yet available in a finalized fashion, since there still isn't anything on the Audi or MBC sites, either?

    I'll be finishing up the website in a day or two then need to be sure the registration process works for our registrar.
