Here is an early set for VIR guys. It's been a long time since I've raced here and I can't even remember what car I was racing so I'm not quite sure what the right setup is for this track. I started with my Road America set from last season but this track was just too loose for my comfort so I added a little more wing and tightened it up a bit. After some practice and with a few laps in I was able to get 1:42.6 with the majority of my laps in the 43s. It such an intricate track that it's very hard to be consistent, plus the grass here is treacherous so it's going to be a challenge keeping it on the pavement for the whole race.

Definitely need to practice for this week (and somehow find time to practice for the 24 ;))

Reminder, I'm hosting an open practice with VHR Racing tonight at 8:30 EST. This is a tricky track, especially for those of us who rarely race here. It's definitely fun in the Pro-2000 once you get the layout down.

Thanks Shawn, definitely gonna jump on tonight for some practice laps - feeling pretty terrible around here.
Appreciate you, and VHR Racing, hosting a session and posting it up as well! (y)

I’m very sorry Olivier I ruined your race. I missed the braking point tried to avoid you and couldn’t. 100% my fault bone head move.

I had fun, very respectful racing with those around me. Very happy with my 5th, I surprised myself with the pace I had. This week was the first time I've driven VIR, it's great. Made me sweat a lot.

Same here - I had to practice a lot more than I initially thought. Tough track despite what looks like a simple-ish layout on paper.

Made a couple mistakes that cost me near the end. Fun racing though.

Lousy night for me to finish off a lousy 2 weeks. I got hit from behind at hogpen rolling to the green when whatever happened up front happened. Hit the kink at the S/F line and the car just snapped around. Luckily I didn't collect anyone. 2:55 tow plus repairs so I just called it. Too narrow of a track to deal with lap traffic.

Unfortunate because I really like VIR.
