Test and Tune is non-timed, non-competition track time for ChampCar teams, competition licensed racers, and approved Pitt Race PDE Group 3 drivers. This program is designed for those seeking additional seat time for driver improvement, vehicle and chassis tuning, and for those who want practice time on the Pitt Race circuit prior to a race event. This program permits advanced passing rules in order to maximize the use of time spent on the track. This is a great opportunity to shake down your car or test for an upcoming race.

This event will be restricted to ChampCar (formerly ChumpCar) racers and a GT style car run group for non-ChampCar testers. The non-ChampCar group is open to licensed racers and approved Pitt Race PDE Group 3 drivers only. Open Wheel / Formula cars will not have a run group for this event. We will do our best to maximize each run groups track time but we will not know the final schedule until closer to the event.

This event will run from 12:30 pm until 5:30 pm with alternating sessions between run groups. This is one hour longer than a normal afternoon Test and Tune to allow for more ChampCar drivers to rotate through practice. On-track incidents, mechanical delays and adverse weather are unpredictable and could result in reduced track time.

To be clear, your registration is for one run group, not both. If you are registering a ChampCar, it can only run in the ChampCar group. You cannot use that car in the non-ChampCar group. However, you may register for the other run group with a different car that meets the eligibility requirements of that group.

Pitt Race does not provide instructors for Test and Tune events.

The goal is to give every team and driver as much track time as possible. On track incidents and weather that delays track time cannot be made up. Pitt Race reserves the right to modify the run groups at any time during the day.

$225 per car for ½ day (Afternoon sessions ONLY)

Drivers/Teams MUST pre-register here on Motorsportreg.com before the close of registraiton. Walk-up registrations may not be permitted.

Test & Tune Event Information (subject to change):

  • Driver Check-In begins at 10 a.m. followed by a mandatory driver’s meeting at 11:45 a.m. If you arrive after the drivers meeting you must see the lead instructor before you will be given access to the track.
  • No race engines may be started before 8:00 a.m. or after 8:00 p.m. You will be asked to shut off your engine and it may result in a penalty with reduced track time for your vehicle.
  • Pitt Race determines the schedule and run groups 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.
