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: $119.00 a night for the Lodge - Villa Price: $385.00 a night
Call 434.822.7700 ext 101 and ask for James. Prices are subject to change

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 9, 2017. 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 can use a credit for this event.

Insurance for this event will be available from Lockton Affinity

Dinner - TBD

These are the required forms. Please make sure you fill these out, print them, sign them, and bring them with you to registration.

Helmet Form: http://www.svtcobraclub.com/ontrackhelmetform.html
Technical Form: http://www.svtcobraclub.com/ontracktechnicalform.html

Medical Forms will now be switched to a "medical card" that must be filled out at the event and kept with you at all times while on track. The club is no longer responsible for safe keeping your medical information, you must keep the card with you at all times till the event is concluded.
