Test and Tune

Get some track time at Pitt Race! Perfect for testing that new build, scrubbing some tires, calibrating the brakes, and fine tuning your qualifying and race set ups. All Test and Tunes will be Full Day. Full Day Session participants will receive approximately 90 minutes of track time. No instructor feedback will be offered with either option. Once the Pitt Race race-control officials know which cars are coming, the officials divide the cars into groups of similar configurations and speeds. The goal is to give every team and driver as much track time as possible.


Test & Tune Daily Protocol: 

  • Registration begins at 7:00a.m., followed by a mandatory driver's meeting at 7:30 a.m. and first track session within an hour and a half of driver’s meeting.
  • Participants may enter the property 6:00 a.m.
  • No race engines may be started or “revved” before 8:00 a.m. or after 6:00 p.m. 
  • Test & Tune sessions generally begin at 8:00 a.m. and run until 5:00 p.m., but any given Test & Tune day is subject to adjustments and modifications 
  • Cars are generally divided into “open-wheel” and “closed-wheel” groups 
  • Pitt Race determines the schedule based on enrollment. In the interest of safety, Pitt Race reserves the right to limit the number of participants on the track at any time 
  • All participants must leave the facility by 7:00 p.m. 
  • Everyone must attend the driver’s meetings at 7:30 a.m.  Drivers will not be able to participate if they miss the driver’s meeting.


COST: $350


All test days are open to the public and fans are encouraged to come watch their favorite drivers and teams practice.



Who should sign up?

  • Aspiring, certified racers interested in a better understanding car racing dynamics through changing and tuning between laps
  • Racers and Time Trial Drivers new to Pitt Race who want to learn and practice the circuit before that race weekend in a non-racing environment.
