VIR Track Times
Welcome to the Virginia International Raceway time log. The idea of this page came from Car & Driver™ magazines "Lightning Lap" articles. The concept was to find a USA equivalent of the Nurburgring to evaluate the overall performance of a car. I thought it was a great idea after their first article and waited for the list on their website of times and hoped it would actively grow. But unfortunately it never materialized and the 2nd article was 8 months later and then there still was only overall list on the website. So, here we are. But of course, I would rather see more times and data be entered than to rely only on C&D to provide the times. So this list is open to all drivers & cars as I would love to see a large compilation of data.

Of course, the good thing about the C&D times is that they are factory cars with no mods with factory OEM tires at factory pressure settings, etc. I am fairly certain I will see VERY few such vehicle times submitted by viewers, and as such I have a notes field that SHOULD be filled in with details about mods and tires and anything else relating to the car and the lap time. Of course, a note on how the time was recorded is also required. All times are for a single lap on the grand course which is the 4.2 mile course.
