LiM3y--give us the VIR video!

Did you post the video from your VIR trip yet? I just watched my DVR recording of the recent Continental Challenge race at VIR. Looks like a great circuit. The pros were ricocheting off the curbs going through the esses--looks like a blast!

I will be going next Spring with the same group I think. It has to be 3-days to warrant the 1400 mile round trip from CT.

I'll be "intermediate". They'll have more than one of the middle groups, not sure what color. I did this track for an advanced 2-day M-School last fall. Seriously fun!

Evice - Nice video and very good consistant lines. Almost 100 % congrats on driving your line when following slower traffic - you got distracted one or two times, but other wise, very good. A slight earlier turn in at 5A will help to straighten out the twisties at 6 and 6A, allowing for a slightly later left turn to go straight on the bridge straight-away. Caution always in this section - 70% of our offs occur in this area, and often, it is not pretty, but always expensive. Good job. Enjoyed you video.
