Join us for our Member Driving Day at Dominion Raceway!

The Drivers Club at Dominion Raceway is a social club for motoring enthusiasts who want to go fast on track without the hectic schedule of a typical track day. Members have exclusive access to 40+ member-only track days a year on an exciting and challenging 2-mile road course.

Located in Thornburg, VA, we are within an hour’s drive of both Washington, DC and Richmond, VA. No longer do you have to spend half the day driving to and from the track. In fact, members can easily enjoy a half day on the track and still make it home for dinner.

The Drivers Club also offers members the opportunity to connect with people who have an appreciation of high-performance vehicles and high-performance driving. With both driving events and social activities, The Drivers Club at Dominion Raceway is the place where you can do it all!

THIS EVENT IS ONLY OPEN TO MEMBERS AND MEMBERS' GUESTS

If you'd like information on joining The Drivers' Club at Dominion Raceway, please contact Jim.Lorimer@dominionraceway.com or visit The Drivers Club website.

 

WEATHER POLICY: 

COLD WEATHER:  If by noon the day before the Member Driving Day, the forecast calls for less than 3-hours above 45 degrees (not including the lunch break hour), the Member Driving Day will be canceled.  The majority of members have stated that they are not interested in driving on the track in temperatures below these.

WET WEATHER:  If by noon the day before the Member Driving Day, the forecast calls for an "all-day" rain, OR severe storms in both the morning and afternoon, the Member Driving Day will most likely be canceled. Typically, a forecast for 'scattered showers" or "a thunderstorm or shower" will NOT cause a cancellation. 

** Please be sure to check the weather forecast the day before the event, and if any of the above applies, feel free to call, email, or text Jim Lorimer to confirm the Member Driving Day will be held.  (804-513-2054)
