2017 SVT Superfest at VIR
Open Track action, car show, and an overall good time is promised
Ever since the 1993 Cobra, the first SVT offering, enthusiasts have had a love affair with the brand. SVT stands for Special Vehicle Team, and that team was assembled to design and produce performance vehicles that are above and beyond standard production offerings. Along with the Cobra, SVT turned standard fare models into performance vehicles designed to turn up the fun-factor. The SVT Contour, Focus, Lightning, and Cobra has inspired enthusiasts to take up open track events across the nation, and the SVT Superfest at Virginia International Raceway presents another chance to have some fun.
Happening this weekend, April 21 – 23, and brought to you by the SVT Cobra Mustang Club (SCMC), Shelby GT500 Club, Track Club USA and Modular Boss, the open track portion will take place on the full-course 3.27-mile layout. There’s a meet and greet Friday evening after the day’s on-track festivities, and you must also be a member of either the SCMC or Track Club USA to participate in the on-track portion of the SVT Superfest. There’s a car show Saturday that includes Fords of all shapes and sizes costing just $20 for your car, and whoever you choose to stuff in it.
As part of the SVT Superfest, there’s also a Forza Club Challenge Race at VIR, so after putting your SVT product through its paces, you can check out the best Ferrari has to offer at the event, as well. The best way to get more information on the SVT Superfest is to search them out on Facebook, and go from there.
