      VIR is great, but presents a few problems with an event like this. Number 1, there are No Open Weekend Dates available at VIR.

      Second is cost, if by some magic you could get a single day weekend date at VIR, an event like this there would be several times more expensive than the amazing $50.00 deal this one is!

      With all of that said, don't discount Summit and Shenandoah Circuit, while not VIR... SC is challenging and a blast to drive!

      There could be a few reasons that VW is doing this such as. In years past there have done other driving exercises in conjunction w/ there events such as skid pad (which Shenandoah does have), coned slalom and ABS recognition. It would also not be unrealistic for this all to change the day of the event as well, been there done that .

      Plus classroom sessions, plus a quiet lunch, plus time for each group to prep cars prior to each run, all of that x 4ish groups? It adds up!

      Link didn't work for me. I used the single event tech inspection from your site when I had it done a few days ago... kosher?
