More history of Pittsburgh International Race Complex (Pitt Race)

Pitt Race is a short 20-minute drive north of the Pittsburgh International Airport with easy access from the Pennsylvania Turnpike (Exit 13). The circuit was expanded in 2015 to 2.8 miles in length, and now boasts nineteen corners with over one hundred feet in elevation change. The circuit offers plenty of challenges for even the most experienced driver. (You will be on the full circuit and you will not be disappointed!  This is not the old 1.5 mile North Course.)

Event requirements

Safety information for 2020

Basic Safety and Tech Information

PLEASE NOTE: head and neck restraint device is required for all cars with

harnesses that go over both shoulders (typically 5-point or 6-point)

Please review the following as there are changes from last year:

  • HELMET – 2010, 2015 or 2020 SNELL SA or M rating REQUIRED with SNELL sticker attached.   SNELL SA (Special application) standard strongly recommended but SNELL M (Motorcycle) helmets are acceptable.   DOT-rated helmets are not permitted.  Please do not arrive with a SNELL 2005-rated or DOT helmet as you will not be allowed to participate per PCA Minimum Standards.
  • SEATBELTS – As a minimum the vehicle shall have original, unmodified, 3-point seat belts installed by the manufacturer.  If you have chosen to install 5-point or 6-point harnesses, be mindful that proper installation will require several changes to create a safe occupant system.   Harnesses must include an anti-submarine strap and be mounted in an approved manner consistent with the harness manufacturer instructions.  The harnesses must be used in conjunction with seats that were manufactured with routing holes for the shoulder belts and anti-submarine belts.  Harnesses will be checked for expiration date compliance.  
    • If you have 5-pt / 6-pt harnesses, or a harness system going over both shoulders, a head and neck restraint is required!
    • If you have anything other than original, factory supplied seat belts, or 5-pt / 6-pt harnesses installed, please contact to review your particular situation.
  • HEAD and NECK RESTRAINTS -  if the above indicates that a head and neck restraint device is required, it must meet the standards of either SFI 38.1 or FIA 8858 or its successor.
  • CONVERTIBLES – All “non-fixed-metal” roof cars must have original, unmodified, factory-installed rollover protection (e.g. 996 and later Cabriolets, Boxsters) or a proper roll bar that passes the “broomstick test”.   Convertibles will run with the top up or occupants will wear arm restraints.
  • AGE – Drivers must be at least 18 years old and possess a valid driver’s license.
  • VEHICLE SAFETY – The driver is responsible for proper preparation and operation of their vehicle.   All registered drivers must print and bring ARPCA’s Vehicle Safety Inspection (VSI) form (ARPCA VSI Form), which must be completed and signed by a third-party automotive repair/inspection facility no more than 30 days before the event.  All non-instructor-driven vehicles will also be required to pass tech inspection at the track.   No refunds will be given for failure to pass tech inspection.   You may remedy failed items and resubmit your vehicle for approval.
  • VEHICLES NOT PERMITTED – All open-wheeled cars are prohibited.   Cars with fenders attached to the suspension and not attached to the body of the car in at least two locations are prohibited.
