It's about 454 miles from my driveway in Gibsonia, to the track entrance (Gibsonia is about 15 miles north of Pittsburgh). It takes between 7 and 7.5 hours. We'd go 79 to 19 to 77 to 58. The drive along 58 is absolutely awesome... lots of twisties through the mountains and breathtaking scenery ("Lover's Leap" especially). It's a good warm-up for the track. We'd leave early on Friday and then leave to return home Sunday evening. The price should be on the website. If not, email them. But does it really matter? You drive an M3

The guy who runs it is Dave Nugent, and he does a fantastic job. He's been running these events for 10 years now, starting at Summit Point in 1999 and moving to VIR in 2001. You usually see quite a mix of cars and people, from young first-timers with their suped-up Mazdas to former pro racers in their prototypes, and everything in between (Vipers, Vettes, F430s, Elises, GT2s, etc.)
