    what's a good / best atom time at VIR 4.1 mile course

    Just got the new car and driver and they ran just under 20 cars or so

    fastest car ZR1 @ 2:50.7
    then

    GTR at 2:53.2

    just curious if an atom is sub 2:50 with the best driver possible.

    dp35 did a 2:07 on the VIR "full course" in a loaner car and the first time at VIR. From his post at AAOC.

    According to Trackpedia, the "full course" is 3.27 miles, while the "grand east" is 4.2 miles. So I'm not sure what the 4.1 mile course is.
