Ultimate Track Car Challenge & Forged GTR-Life Track Event @ VIR

Tirerack Presents 
Ultimate Track Car Challenge

   

The Annual Ultimate Track Car Challenge at VIR

Friday July 18th

Will You Be One of Our Fast 50?

 

From Grassroots Motorsports

With our annual no-holds-barred track competition, the aim is to find the fastest machine on four wheels. The Tire Rack Ultimate Track Car Challenge presented by Grassroots Motorsports returns to Virginia International Raceway on July 18, 2014. Bring your raucous, flame-belching beast to the track and see if you can best the competition.

The rules are simple: All your car needs to do is pass a NASA safety inspection. Run any tire and any suspension type; add seven turbos, superchargers, displacement, spinning triangles; mount it to a production-based chassis or tube frame; use chromoly, carbon fiber, lexan-whatever your wrenching heart desires.

What do you win? Bragging rights. Wave your trophy of triumph in the air and watch 49 of your fellow track mates quiver in fear of your awesome horsepower and incredible ability as a wheelman. There can be only one ultimate track car, and only one ultimate track car driver. It could be you.

This event is a must for super car and modified vehicle owners all across the U.S. We’ve hosted this event the past five years, in accordance with NAGTROC, with great success, and we have now opened the event up to all kinds of performance vehicles (Porsche, Nissan, Infiniti, Subaru, Mitsubishi, Lotus, etc.).

We have always had a blast at this event, and there’s an awesome turn out from the GT-R community. Whether you’re a performance car owner or just an enthusiast, this event is never a disappointment.

Virginia International Raceway presents 3.27 miles of challenging corners and includes two 3000ft – 4000ft straightaways that allow you to fully open up your beast. This is, arguably, one of the most enjoyable road course experiences a car enthusiast will have.

Come out and see what your vehicle can do on one of the greatest tracks in North America!

Team Traqmate will be on hand for sales and trackside support.

Spec Miata lap record at AMP Short Course
 
This was recorded at the first ever SCCA event at Atlanta Motorsports Park in Dawsonville, Ga. The first day of the event was held on the south 2/3 of AMP which is the tricky, technical part. Since this was the first time the short course had ever been used, you know there was going to be a lap record set and it kept coming down throughout the day.
