I recommend NESBA for a trackday at VIR. There is a short class for first timers then you will go out behind a CR(control rider) If you want more help be proactive and ask the CR's. They are all really good about helping anyone who asks.
Bike prep is minimal. Take off the mirrors and license plate. Tape up all the lights (I recommend disconnecting them too). Make sure you have decent tires and everything is tight and secure. Especially your oil filter and drain bolt.
If you want to do a school then Cornerspeed is a good one to consider. It's well worth the money.

If you have any questions feel free to PM me.

You definitely want to research the organizer that is hosting ANY event. The organizer will make a HUGE difference in your experience!!!

What ever you to check up on your organizer.

Oh and let us know how it goes! :D

I would suggest looking into Cornerspeed too. I have ridden with both Cornerspeed and NESBA and I prefer Cornerspeed. I know for a first time rider Cornerspeed is more expensive and requires more bike prep. But, I feel that I learned a lot more while riding with Cornerspeed than I did with NESBA. I moved towards Cornerspeed because I started to feel the "I" group at NESBA was getting over crowded and found it hard to get hooked up with a CR to get some help. I was nothing looking for help to get bumped or anything like, I just wanted to get some pointers in 2 parts of the track I was struggling with. Let me know if you got an other questions.
