Cancellation Policy: We have a special cancellation policy for this event and this event only. You may cancel up to 72 hours prior to the event and get a full refund.

On-line payment available: No, only checks will be accepted. Your check will be mailed back to you or will be shredded if you decide to cancel going to the event.

Special Weather Insurance: If it is raining or snowing or if the temperature is below 48 degrees, this event may be cancelled and a full refund will be returned to the registrants. We will also shred the check if you agree to it. Precipitation will cancel the event but temperature gives either the track or the club the right to cancel and issue participants a full refund! The temperature clause is a guideline where we used the average temperature in Alton, VA for the month of February as the decision point. The average temperature was researched from weather.com. This does not mean we will cancel due to cold weather but it gives us the right to cancel if either party deems it necessary.

Host Hotel: The Lodge at VIR or the Villas at VIR. We are asking ALL participants to lodge at the track.

Cost: $110.00 a night for the Lodge - Villa Price: $395.00 a night

Event Update:

The bottom line on this event is that you have nothing to lose and everything to gain since you will get a full refund if you cancel up to 72 hours before the event. We have a weather clause so if it is bad weather, we will cancel the event, and you will get your check back. No checks will be endorsed prior to February 6, 2015. That means we will hold your check till we know that the weather is going to be good and only then will we deposit your fee. There will be no on line payment for this event since we do not want to pay processing fees and will be able to give you a full refund should the weather be bad.

You cannot use a credit for this event.

List Updated....this is an "open format" where advanced groups can get 12 hours of track time over the weekend. remember, we have to have at least 32 paying participants in order for us to hold the event. That means we need 21 more participants in the next three weeks. Spread the word!!

01-16-2015, 09:25 PM
I'll be going to the post office tomorrow and will let you know over the weekend. I haven't been all week so it could be sitting there in the box.

01-19-2015, 10:03 PM

01-20-2015, 03:44 PM
Tony, letting you know I will not be able to arrive until noon on saturday from Quantico. Just got assigned to work until Saturday early AM, then I will be able to make the trip down to VIR. SUCKS!!:mad:

01-20-2015, 09:06 PM
Just be careful making your way down there.

01-20-2015, 09:13 PM
Check sent a few days ago. Car is still in the air. New GT 500 front control arms going on with the Steeda x5 ball joint replacement. See you all there.:)

01-20-2015, 09:20 PM
Make sure you tighten everything up. I don't want the excuse that your ball joint came loose when I blow by you. :P

01-20-2015, 09:41 PM
just make sure you do all your maintenance before you arrive at the track this time!

01-24-2015, 09:42 AM
A SCMC Event wouldn't be an event if Reg didn't have to fix something. I also have 20 stock lug studs in the truck for Tony! Can't wait to get down to VIR.

01-24-2015, 11:25 AM
Hey, do you remember how we got the stud installed in the Boss? Didn't we pull it through with an impact wrench or breaker bar?

01-25-2015, 06:51 PM

01-25-2015, 06:52 PM
Only thing that i will need to mend is Tony's ego for gettin spanked by an 05 gt

01-25-2015, 07:22 PM
Oh, you drive the heck out of that thing.....right off the track! LOL.... :)

01-25-2015, 08:51 PM

01-30-2015, 05:37 AM

01-31-2015, 02:35 PM
Please note: If you plan to attend this weekend's VIR event. You will have to do the following:

1. Fill out a registration form and send it to me via E-mail prior to paying on Saturday or Friday night
2. Bring cash for either $250.00 one day or $450.00 two days.
3. Go to the first post and fill out all of the information on line, print the form, sign and date it. then bring it to registration.

Do not mail a check as there is no guarantee that it will get here prior to the event and you will not be able to go on track till your payment is received. I repeat, do not send a check this week as there is no guarantee I will receive it in time. Just bring the cash and you'll be good to go.
