Located at VIRginia International Raceway, the VIR Kart Track offers an opportunity to hone your racing skills on a state-of the-art 5/8 miles, 24-foot-wide paved karting circuit.

Almost every successful pro driver in the world today got their start in karting, where the dynamics of driving are amplified, more easily understood and often more readily practiced than in full-sized cars.

The VIR Kart Track is open to the public from 9am to 6pm Wednesday through Sunday. The track is fully lit so we can handle evening appointments. We can open Monday or Tuesday by appointment. Arrive and drive in the VIR 9.5hp karts. We offer open practice sessions where you can bring and drive your own kart or super/mini moto on the VIR Kart Track. Contact the VIR Kart Track at 434-822-2995 or 434-822-7700 x350 or e-mail us at karttrack@VIRnow.com for more information.
