After almost 2 years work we are very proud to release this great track for Assetto Corsa.

Virginia International Raceway (commonly known as "VIR") is a road course located in Alton, Virginia. VIR hosts amateur and professional automobile and motorcycle events, driving schools, club days, and private test rentals. It is most famous for hosting the IMSA Weathertech Sportscar Championship which takes place every August.

The track itself has been painstakingly modeled from scratch using several sources of technical data, countless photographs, hours of video footage and real world feedback from drivers and racers.

It contains all seven layouts: Full, Grand East, Grand West, North, South, Patriot & Patriot Reverse. All are fully functioning with AI. Each layout has it's own look and feel in accordance with real life. The 'Full' layout is 2016 race spec as you will see it in the Sportscar Championship/Oak Tree GP

A huge amount of effort went into this project. We hope you enjoy it.

Please take the time to check out the release notes included in the download.

Cool track!!!
thank you very much.
Love this track, great to race on, thank you !
Beautiful track and incredibly fun to drive - I never want to stop hotlapping. Fantastic work with great attention to detail.
great version of the track
Such a lovely track
I've spent countless hours on this track. It would be great if someone would update it and bring it to more current standards.
A beautiful track. Attention to detail is amazing. I love the section that bends left, right, left, right (can't remember how many) followed by a massive dip! Thank you for this wonderful track.
Love the Patriot Course of this Track. S-Turns with elevation changes feel great on road cars. Generaly very cool for road car racing ...like S2000 ;)

Totally underrated this track until SRS featured 1H races. Makes a ton of fun. Unfutunetly this track´s to hard for AI to drive fast.
Amazing creation with great attention to detail.
First of all: i love VIR, this is a great track. And thanks to this mod, we can enjoy it in Assetto Corsa. Honestly i couldn't tell this is a mod. Looks and feels like a track made by Kunos.
excelent
Amazing track. The level of detail is unbelieveable. Even better than some Kunos tracks, and the fack you can drive on the paddock and the roads around the circuit just blows my mind. Just 1 question. Will you guys include the go kart layout as a proper layout? It is perfect for go kart racing, but sadly it doesn´t have timing

Hi off on, thanks for the review. Glad you are enjoying the track. Actually, there is a way to enable the Kart Track - we just made you work for it :P. Have a read through the VIR topic in the forums - specifically anything to do with the VIP files ;)
Lovely track with great details.
rly gud
A fantastic track, thnx!
I used this for a VR vs. Reality experiment I did for my YouTube channel and was very impressed with the accuracy. I ended up within a second of my real-life self (grant it with some left on the table in the game, but it was a test of intuitive-ness, so I limited my practice in the game). https://youtu.be/dBNED5QfjUY if anyone's curious.
Awesome work ...Thank you
great piece of work
UPDATED review: solved the issues I was having, it now deserves the missing star from my previous rating!

Hi leon_90. Z fighting can be a real pain in AC. Glad you got it sorted and appreciate you taking the time to amend your rating. Glad you are enjoying the track. DB :)
Great work, for an amazing track. Thank you.
Excellent
Great track indeed. Curbs and Trees around need some more attention, and to reduce some brightness of many objects, including grass, which is all around.
Excellent work! Thank you for creating this!
