VIRginia International Raceway welcomes all members of the media to request credentials to any of our spectator events.
To obtain your media credential, please complete our media credential request form below.
In addition, members of the media are required to read and abide by VIR’s media/photographer rules and procedures, and photographers must read and abide by VIR’s photographer rules and photographer’s access map. The private use of any Unmanned Ariel System/Drone is not permitted at VIR. Any other use must comply with VIR Policy and FAA guidelines.
If you are requesting credentials for the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship or the MotoAmerica SuperBike Championship, please be aware the number of credentials distributed for these events will be limited. For this reason, preference will be given to applicants able to provide a letter of assignment or those that can verify they are from a legitimate media outlet. Applicants that do not meet the described requirements may still apply; however, submission does not guarantee approval. If your request is denied, you will be contacted via e-mail or phone. Requests for media credentials for these events must be made no later than 1 week prior to the start of the event to be considered.
*Approved media are not to take pictures of their credentials and share on social media, email, text message or any other form of communication. Credentials will be revoked if this is seen.
For additional information or any questions surrounding media, contact Mitchell Smith by email (preferred) at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (434) 822-7700 ext. 114
