Practice / HPDE before 2023 NASA Championships

Pittsburgh International Race Compl

About this event


Looking for some track time to break up your week or perhaps some extra practice before the 2023 NASA Championships? Join us on September 6th for track time with Lambert Track Days at Pittsburgh International Race Complex! This event is the Wednesday immediately before the NASA Championships. We have the full track rented with fully staffed flag stations and emergency personnel. This is a very unique opportunity to run laps without a lot of traffic and have a great time socializing with other track enthusiasts.

We will be limiting the event to about 75 cars with advanced drivers only! We are currently planning to have 3 run groups. There will be at least one run group that allows open passing and at least one run group that requires a point-by for passing. The third run group will depend on the number of registrations and the most common passing rules preference. Rest assured, the preference you select at registration will determine your placement. As the event begins to fill up, one of the two passing rule options will disappear for future registrations.


  • $399 through July 31st
  • $449 on or after August 1st

*Heads up! Motorsport Reg now charges a $2 booking fee so you may notice the actual charge to your card is $2 higher.

Co-driver, Same car, Same run group: +$149
Non-driving passenger: +$0; Waiver and wristband required. Visit us at the garage for details.

NOTE: This is a tentative schedule only! The final schedule will be posted closer to the event.)
