Dominion Raceway Road Course Course Walk

Dominion Raceway’s Road Course is 2 miles in length. The Road Course is a minimum of 36’ wide and includes some banked turns and topography to make the course exciting.

DR’s Road Course includes a straight stretch measuring approximately 2,700’ that ends with a long sweeping left hander. That turn is nick-named the Po after the Po River which runs along that stretch of the Road Course.

Dominion Raceway’s design includes sweeping turns (a total of 12 turns) and 70’ of elevation change. The track provides numerous passing zones and terrific visibility.

A fully paved paddock area with self-service fuel, a beautiful clubhouse with full bar,lounge and showers. Site electric hook ups in the paddock areas are also available.

 

Edwin Pardue, General Manager of Dominion Raceway attended the PCA FSR Northern area monthly breakfast. Edwin spoke about the current state of construction, tentative scheduled dates for milestones and when motorsport enthusiasts will have access to the facility as spectators and participants. After the breakfast, we were invited to head down to the complex, located just 15 minutes south of Fredericksburg at the Thornburg Exit. The road course experienced a little bit of rain construction wash out in some key areas of the track that precluded any driving on track, but we were invited to walk the course, and walk we did. Below are pictures I took with my smartphone. I want to caution anyone looking at these images and drawing concern over safety. There is still a lot of work to be done, including catch fences, Armco, curbing, and berms. Tire bundles will also be placed in key impact areas. So please enjoy the images, but please don’t draw conclusions until we see the final product. Edwin assured all present that his staff is working closely with NASA and SCCA, as well as consulting motorsport safety experts on their plans to finalize all placement of safety/retention systems on the course. Update: On March 13th, Marco Estrada (DE Chair), Tim Ashbridge (CTI) and myself visited the Dominion Raceway to get a feeling for the construction progress. It appears that our April 30th/May1st event is on schedule. Scott Hoffman DE Registrar
