Default Chin at VIR, March 3-4 2018

I’m thinking of signing up for the Chin event at VIR in early March. Does anyone have experience at VIR at that time of year? How risky is it with regards to weather? Is anyone else going?

I am going. Last year the weather was good. It’s a bit of a crap shoot on the weather but have my fingers crossed.

CHIN does a nice job with this event.

Weather is indeed a crap shoot. I've been there at the end of March and had snow.

Yup Ed is right. For a few years running, I started my season off with a BMW CCA VIR event at the end of March. Had snow one year and half the other event was massive rain the next. On the other hand nice to start the season with some highly technical driving - and a hard ass instructor to get your head right.

Rolled the dice and signed up. We’ll see what happens. It’ll be a learning experience either way, just like VIR last year.

I'll probably be there. Might be doing some laps in a VW TCR.
