I noticed a great deal for a driving school on this site for the C7 in Nevada. I am wondering if anyone knows about any plans etc. to organize such an event at Virginia International Raceway (VIR). Would be alot easier to get to for those of us on the East Coast. Perhaps we could get with the other Vette forums and organize a track day for Corvettes at VIR. I know I would really like to drive my car at VIR as I have driven there in the past with other track day organizers like Olthoff Racing in my Superformance Cobra.

The Nevada one is a professionally instructed school where you get to drive THEIR cars. So you can just fly out and do it.

If you are just looking to drive your Corvette at VIR, there should be plenty of opportunities to do it with local clubs and amateur instructors if you need one.

VIR is the bomb! As FormulaRedline mentions, LOTS of chances to get out there. I ran a few SCCA endurance races there and it is my favorite of all tracks I've been on. (Well- haven't been on COTA- yet!)

Just finished the NASA midatlantic VIR HPDE this weekend. Was awesome. Did a double down special so got to do HPDE2 and 3 both days. Did 16 sessions! Car did awesome. One question I have to speedracer: You run with carbotech pads. Do you prefer them over the stock pads? I think I like the stock pads better. The xp10/8 setup I ran makes the brakes seem very spongy and actually had a few instances where the brakes did a less than stellar job of stopping the car. They performed really well some and not too great some. They seemed to get real spongy after a couple hard brake zones and stay that way the whole session. The stock pads never faded at all the last VIR event even with DOT3 brake fluid. The inconsistent performance had me pretty concerned on track. The upside is they look to last longer than stock pads, but man, sometimes they were really slipping. Any thoughts on what the prob could be. Have ATE super blue fluid with the carbotechs. The only thing I can figure is that I couldn't get them bedded perfectly since the rotors had the oem pads on first. Very disappointed overall with the carbotechs.

C7Heaven- call Adam at Amp'd Autosport. He's been helpful with helping me diagnose my issues. I've had nothing but issues attempting to get the the brakes to work properly, but I'm leaning towards potentially having an airbubble trapped somewhere. The brakes fade, but when I double pump the pedal- I have solid brakes. I've re-bled the system myself 3 times, and still have the issue. I'm going to take it to the dealer to see if they can figure it out.
