Each year, VIR draws tens of thousands of spectators for racing, concerts, and events. Within the property’s rolling hills and miles of lush forest, guests can enjoy unique amenities such as the VIR Club, karting, off-road racing, skeet shooting, pistol, and rifle ranges, skidpad, dining options more.
