VIR Rules and Regulations

Paddock, Autocross, and all paved access roads - Speed limit in the paddock is 15 mph.  Speed limit on access roads is 25 mph.  Do not pound stakes, or make any holes for any reason, in any asphalt surface.  Offenders will be fined and maybe ejected.  Do not paddock on any paved areas.  Do not fuel vehicles on any paved areas.  If you must temporarily jack a vehicle on asphalt, you must have metal or wood under the jack and jack stands.  NO EXCEPTIONS!  Do NOT paint any asphalt surface.

Pets - VIR discourages bringing your pets to the track.  However, we realize many people do and accept that if you keep your pet leashed and clean up after it, we will allow it.  If we see pets unleashed, we will find the owner and both will be asked to leave.  Do NOT take leashed pets onto false grid or pit areas.

Disposal of waste fluid - Use of the drums located in several areas in the paddock(s) is mandatory for used oil antifreeze brake fluid and other polluting material.  Spillage will not be tolerated and may result in ejection from the facility.

Fuel - VIR's fuel pumps are operable by CREDIT CARD ONLY during the posted hours -- generally 8AM -- 6PM.  We will have available Unocal 110 leaded and 100 unleaded racing fuel as well as Exxon 93 and 87 octane gas.

Showers - The showers are located in the North paddock main concession building restrooms.  Please be considerate of your compatriots regarding all water use.  Please do not leave faucets running or waste water in any way.

Gate hours - The main gate will generally be open from 7AM until 7PM.  On certain events (see camping) there will be 24 hour access available.

Power - There is limited electrical power available.  The standard 20 amp duplex plugs are free for all.  The 30 amp "shore" power for motor homes and large rigs/trailers will be available at $20 for the duration of the event.  VIR personnel will tag lines and collect the fees.

ATV's, golf carts, and bicycles - Use of ATV's, golf carts, pit carts, and bicycles is a fact of life in the track paddocks.  Common sense and care must be applied to their use.  Children should not operate or "learn to drive" at VIR.  Bicycle use will be tolerated as long as used safely.  Children (under 16) should be discouraged from riding bikes in the paddock.  Rollerblades, bicycles, and golf carts maybe permitted on the course following the end of the day's activities.
