    Spoke with Kim @ JRThompson and she said the price has been adjusted to 174 for SRT owners and is still 170 for passengers.


    I hope it is better than ALMS @ VIR was. SRT completely abandoned the race as far as hospitality was concerned... See my comments in bold below

    The SRT experience for ALMS @ VIR:
    "The SRT® hospitality area (Shared with other car clubs) offers a VIP experience at the track, all within a climate-controlled lounge (Could not see the track from the shared lounge). Guests can watch a live, commercial-free broadcast feed of the race (No, we could not - there were no TVs), receiving an uninterrupted view (Deck was very full and hard to see from because of the other groups) of all the action on the racetrack. For those SRT owners that want to have one of the best views of the track (Other corrals had huge tents located at much better viewpoints) , access to the roof of the SRT hospitality area delivers that (No roof, just a shared deck at the concession stand). Throughout the entire day, catered meals (Lunch) and beverages are provided part of the full SRT hospitality experience. Please note: to park in the SRT car corral, you must have an SRT vehicle. (Or an Audi as it was a shared lot and furthest parking available, although neither ownership requirement was enforced)"


    Also, we did not get parade laps as promised. The Italian club got to go on the track instead. I wasted miles & gas driving my Viper to the race because I thought I could show my guest the track - I was very pissed off. I am currently requesting a refund

    The more power to you Chris!!! VIR was a BIG TIME BUST on SRT's part!!! And with SRT charging $140 per person and $255 for two, wires must have been crossed somewhere. I could see one hiccup or two, but VIR was pure misrepresentation and all the facts you listed above were TRUE. I was glad I came after lunch that day because I didn't have to pay, or I would be requesting a refund as well!!! I'm just glad we had a low member turnout because it would have been embarrassing.
