Ask any driver about VIR and they're likely to mention the famed (and some say infamous) uphill esses, past the Villas on the way to the signature Oak Tree Turn. With long views of the high-speed eastern segment of the Full Course and the excitement of the North and Patriot Courses, the Patriot stands put you right in the action.
The perfect perch to catch the action as drivers transition from the intense and highly technical NASCAR Bend, Left Hook series of turns and settle in to the long uphill fight up to Crossover Bridge. Nearly a quarter of the Full Course is visible from this elevated vantage point.
With lots of seating, natural shade from a grove of oaks and fantastic views of lots of track, Pagoda Glen is the perfect location to watch your favorite driver coming off of the high-speed Front Straight and try for that exciting pass in the Horse Shoe, NASCAR Bend, Left Hook complex.
Get right up on the fence as racers manage the Roller Coaster's change from uphill battle to downhill thrill. There's a reason that this is a favorite vantage point for international television crews who wat to broadcast the excitement of VIR.
Clear skies, wide open spaces and a gently falling terrain make this the perfect location to soak up some sun and enjoy a long view of the tricky and exciting Roller Coaster as racers cresting the hill try to negotiate the reduced mechanical grip of the downward slope and the right, left ess.
