Lief added, "People travel from all over the country to attend superbike races and we believe that incorporating the local culture improves the entertainment value for the motorcycle fans that make the trip to Virginia. The beauty of the southeastern region of the United States and VIR’s park like setting makes this a great destination. We encourage y’all to make the trip to the Suzuki White Lightning AMA Pro Superbike races this August." The VIR event will mark the eighth stop in the scheduled ten races, so fans will be treated to spectacular racing as the championship battle heats up. The event weekend features a double-race in each of the AMA Pro Racing classes on both Saturday and Sunday. New additions to the event this year will be the Harley Davidson XR 1200 class and an electric motorcycle race. VIR will be hosting one of five races in the new Harley Davidson XR 1200 class that weekend. Also on the racing calendar is the exciting electric motorcycle series – the TTGXP!Just like in past years, VIR has planned a wide range of exciting activities to keep the event a fan favorite, including two big screen TVs, live music, fireworks, camping, vendors, special VIP ticket upgrades which include food and VIP viewing areas, motorcycle parking areas, a Harley-Davidson pig picking, a free kids zone, the VIR Girls and more.
