Anyone going?

I am hoping to be able to make it down on Thursday. Any advice on where to get some good shots without media credentials? This will be my first time at VIR. I also have the opportunity to rent some lenses. I'm thinking a Canon 300mm F/4. Opinions?

Thanks,
Trevor

I am not going - got to work my real job.
VIR's access is pretty reasonable for non-media pass holders. The 300 should work fine.
I haven't covered the South Paddock area yet, but you can get turns 1-4 from the main concession.
The front straight from the start/finish tower.
And, if you hike or drive behind the other red barn above the North paddock, you catch the chicane at the end of the back straight.

You can get an idea from this gallery (external link)
