Those looking for two days of abundant track time on the full course at the renowned VIRginia International Raceway in Alton, VA, will get their wish over the Aug. 6-7, 2022, weekend, as SCCA has replaced its previously planned SCCA Enduro National Tour with a rare Track Night and race car test day opportunity at one of the nation’s greatest road racing circuits.
The Aug. 6-7 coheadliner is Track Night in America Driven by Tire Rack, where street cars are driven on racecourses across America. Track Night’s no-pressure environment allows drivers to get on track for pocket change, with little more than a mechanically sound vehicle and approved helmet required. Run groups for the two-day event will be split among driver experience levels, with Track Night coaches on hand to ensure everyone’s weekend is as safe as it is fun and affordable.
Never entered an SCCA Track Night? Here’s what to expect.
The second facet of the Aug. 6-7 weekend is a pair of race car test days. The race car test day run groups will be split between open- and closed-wheel race cars, with performance being a deciding factor therein (fendered vehicle groups will likely be split between big-bore and small-bore). While these test sessions don’t require the use of a vehicle eligible for the National Championship Runoffs, the weekend will prove to be an exceptional seat-time opportunity for those heading to the 2022 Runoffs at VIR. That said, any race car adhering to the GCR’s safety standards or similar, along with drivers with verifiable wheel-to-wheel racing experience, will be welcome.
Meanwhile, for Track Night’ers who are race car curious, here’s your opportunity to mingle with the folks in cages.
