VIRginia Releases 61st Season Schedule

VIRginia International Raceway has unveiled its lineup of events for 2018. The track schedule features nine returning “spectator favorite” events and tickets go on sale mid-November.
 
The season gets underway with the SCCA Majors Tour April 13-15, a pinnacle of club racing in North America. It continues to rev up in late April with the Pirelli World Challenge.
 
August brings the fan-favorite IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship to the track, as it makes its only mid-Atlantic stop Aug. 17–19. In addition, the weekend will feature several support series including the Biscuitville Grand Prix for the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge. Following in September, VIR will “transport fans back in time” for its Heacock Classic Gold Cup, where two distinct eras collide to display historic racing action.
 
“The spectator event lineup at VIR just keeps getting better and better,” said Connie Nyholm, owner and CEO of VIR. “We’re beyond excited to see the return of so many prestigious races to our road course, and are proud to be able to offer some of the highest quality events racing has to offer.”
 
Tickets for all events will go on sale in mid-November. Fans who purchase a ticket for any of VIR’s 2018 events on Cyber Monday, Nov. 27, will receive a free shirt voucher, redeemable at the TMI Racing Products store in the North Paddock at VIR.
