Track sprint

Post by Gsniper »

Is there any interest in having another track besides VIR for a track sprint? I work at Panthera Training Center and there is a 1.5 mile paved track there that would likely be much cheaper than going to VIR.

I would be very interested in another venue as an addition to VIR. As long as we could keep the numbers right for optimal runtime, but still pay the bills. And of course if they would even allow us to run there. That venue is a bit further from VIR for me, but if it would be worth the drive I would do it. I would imagine that there would be a lot of people from the WDCregion that would be swarming to that area since it is fairly close. So filling the entry list should not be a problem.
I am avoiding any SCCA events currently till this mess gets undercontrol, but am keeping my fingers crossed for the October track sprint. I was hopping to be much more involved this year but the protection of my family comes first. Hope to see all soon!

That looks like a really neat facility, but it falls squarely within WDCR territory. I'll reach out to some contacts there and see if we can get something moving.

Thank you Henry! I thought that was out of our jurisdiction. Edited this due to finding out that the DC Rally guys have already found it. They Have an event in October scheduled.

Looks like a cool facility. I'd totally be up for a event there if we could maybe co host an event with wdcr. They have a pretty good tt program and I recently met there hpde/tt director.

I have mentioned this to Josh, WDCR's TT chair and he replied that they already use the facility for Rallycross. It isn't much of a stretch for them to setup a TrackSprint event there and they were already looking into it since FedEx field isn't available at the moment.

Thank you again Henry! WDCR Rally's October Rallycross is being hosted there the same weekend, but opposite day as our VIR track sprint. In a perfect world I would be logging a lot of miles and getting no sleep that weekend.
