Track Walks Encouraged/Allowed?

Recommended Posts

Curious if I can walk the track the evening prior to school day? I have not been on VIR since 2011 and would like to see and feel how much the track and surface has changed.

 

Thanks

Andrew

The school would not have any problem with you walking the track, and at VIR, this would be easier if you were actually staying at the track hotel so you were already on site. With some tracks you could potentially have difficulty getting in past the security or guard shack the day before your school; I'm not sure if this would be a problem at VIR but staying on site would probably handle that as you would already be signed in and on the property. 

You could take a look at the track but it is difficult to try to judge traction of an asphalt surface by looking at it. Sometimes the grittiest is not the best traction and sometimes what looks smooth is; the only true test is riding on it.

Our group will def be staying at the track 👍 What better way to let the new to the track guy get the whole experience 😁

 

Thanks

I'm not sure what VIR allows...I think they close gate/track access once all track activity is done.  I'd give 'em a call.

Gates are manned and roving security patrol 24/7 on event days.

I know the main gate it always manned, I was referring to the paddock gate, that's usually locked too...but I'd think people ask about this regularly.
