Virginia International Raceway - 1998 before renovation
Don Sanders driving and narrating (also with VIR co-developer Connie
Nyholm) - renovation was just starting - some trees had been cut down. One
lap starting at the crossover bridge. See http://www.virhistory.com for
more old VIR photos and history.
Spec Miata Mayhem at Roebling
Nothing like the start of a Spec Miata race for crazy excitement. People
get shuffled out of order and it takes a few laps to sort things out. Make
sure you see the action at 2:20.
This is 5 laps from the Sarrc Invitational Challenge, the championship race
for the SCCA Southeast Division at Roebling Road Raceway near Savannah, GA,
held October 9th, 2011.

MG, Porsche, and Triumph with the Zapata team at VIR Vintage
I was invited to go to the historic races in June at VIR by members of the
Zapata Racing team out of Nashville TN. Being a car guy it was incredible.
Cars you should only see in a museum are on the track doing exactly what
they are designed to do....RACE.
It is amazing. If you have the means, you must go to one of these races.
