My employer is requiring us to submit our 2016 requests for vacation leave by the end of September (frustrating). Any idea of likely dates for VRG events? Especially the Driver's School/Jefferson 500 at Summit Point.

Any knowledge of other group's events (especially VDCA's Wild Hare at VIR) would be helpful, too.

TIA

Hi - the PVGP site is showing July 8-10 at Pitt Race and July 16 and 17 at Schenley next year.

Joe:

I understand your dilemma. VRG is working hard on the 2016 Event Schedule. Some of the events like the J500 and Pitt-Race are already set. VDCA controls the Wild Hare date.

We are still evaluating new tracks that are promising to be ready-to-race in 2016. As we learned in 2015, for various reasons those promises cannot always be kept.

We will be soliciting feedback from our drivers via a survey sometime soon after Labor Day. We hope that everyone will take the time to answer each question as accurately and honestly as possible to help VRG pick the venues that our drivers want to race, and importantly will attend, to make 2016 a successful season.

Hi Mack. No dilemma here - I'm ok with the timing. I was just responding to Eric's original post about dates so he can notify his employer. One of the benefits of "retirement" is that I have a good bit of flexibility. :)

Thanks!

And thanks for the replies.

I can arrange for long weekends off for the usual Fri-Sat-Sun events. But I'd like to attend the Driver's School at Summit so I need more time off for that.

I see the 2016 Events Calendar has been posted. Awesome!

Any chatter about an event at Palmer, MA?

Eric, we're working on that one, possibly in very late July/very early August. It's still not completely firm yet, so that's why it's not yet published.
