Track Night 2020: VIRginia International Raceway - July 16
In light of the current COVID-19 situation, every attempt will be made to minimize the risks of exposure to the virus. New processes and procedures are being developed and will be put into place for events going forward.
Ultimately, it is your responsibility to assess the risk to you, both on-track and off, and to make the decision on whether or not to participate. If you are feeling unwell or are experiencing symptoms such as fever, cough, or shortness of breath please stay home. If you have been in contact with someone who has been experiencing these symptoms in the last two weeks, please stay home.
Please take this seriously. Each individual has different concerns about the risk of infection and it is important to take everyone's feelings into consideration. The approach we are taking and asking you to join us in is much in alignment with our "same team" approach. Just as your safety and well-being on track depend on everyone working together, the same applies in the paddock as well. As such, we ask that everyone respect the health concerns of others, whether you share them or not.
While on-site please take the health and safety of your fellow participants, volunteers, and staff into consideration and practice social distancing, wear a mask, and wash your hands, and/or use hand sanitizer frequently. All attendees and staff will be required to wear a face covering (mask, bandana, balaclava, etc.) any time they are outside of their own vehicle.
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.
TRACK SPECIFIC RULES
- SA2010 or SA2015 helmets are required for this event. No other helmets will be permitted.
- All convertible vehicles must be equipped with an appropriate roll bar for this event. Note from VIR: Many manufacturers’ roll hoops, roll bars designed for street use (non-racing), as well as roll bars that terminate below the top of the operator’s helmet, shall not be approved. Factory or aftermarket hardtops are not considered to be rollover protection.
- Like all Track Nights, this is an event for streetcars. If you have a waiver from Jack Track to bring a car that is not a streetcar or legally plated kit car, the track has additional safety requirements that the driver must wear a one-piece SFI or FIA-rated driver's suit with a minimum of two layers.

EVENT INFO & CHECK-IN
**This will be a participants only, no guests or spectators event. All participants must be registered prior to 2:00 pm on July 15th to be permitted to enter the facility.

VIR will be requiring both of the waiver forms below to enter the gate for this event. Please print them in color and bring them with you to the event. Arrive prior to 3:00PM if you aren't able to print them and need to receive paper copies on-site.
The Track Night staff will be checking driver's in beginning at 1:00PM on Raceplex Dr. The gates to our paddock won't open until 3:00, but with extra COVID steps in place there will not be time to check everyone in between 3:00 and 4:00. Please arrive as early as you're able to in order to reduce the last minute rush.

Multiple Participant Briefings will be held throughout the check-in time. All drivers are required to attend one.
3:00PM - South Paddock Access Open
6:30PM - Track Tour Laps (Open to All)
