May 13-15 Rolex Sport Car Series & the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge

The Bosh engineering Rolex Race at Virginia International Raceway (VIR) is May 13 - 15 this year.  The Duffs plan to go and are thinking of organizing a Dogwood rally if there is enough interest.  We would be dry camping, probably in the same location in the infield above turn 4 that we used last year when we were at VIR.  Tentatively, we would plan a covered dish meal for Friday evening, dinner at Oak Tree Tavern on Saturday evening (they served a delicious dinner at a very moderate price last year), breakfast provided on Saturday morning and Sunday morning. If there is sufficient interest, Mann will negotiate a discount for tickets.

The Rolex race and the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge at VIR promises a great weekend of racing at a very modest cost.  Last year, tickets for two for a full weekend of racing was about $80 and camping for the weekend was $50.  Prices this year should be similar.  Here are links to the VIR website  and a few photos from last years race. 

The question is, who wants to go?  Send an eMail to fmcaDogwood@gmail.com to put your name on the list.  More later if there's interest.
