Pitt Race Trans Am FRP SVRA Test & Tune

Pitt International Race Complex

About this event

This Pitt Race Test and Tune is non-timed, non-competition track time for licensed racers.. This event 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 the weekends events. This program permits advanced passing rules in order to maximize the use of time spent on the track. Pitt Race will not provide instructors for Test and Tune.

Five classes have been pre-set, once we have a reasonable sample of car numbers and types, we will divide the cars into more groups of similar configurations if necessary.  The goal is to give every team and driver as much track time as possible. Pitt Race reserves the right to modify the run groups at any time during the day. NOTE: Group 3 street cars are NOT permitted in this test and tune.  

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

$380 per car for full day

Once online registration is closed walk-ups will be accepted at an additional fee.
