Test and Tune – October 5

Test and Tune

Full Track

Test and Tune is non-timed, non-competition track time for licensed racers, time trial drivers 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. 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 is a modified afternoon schedule and 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 and delays are unpredictable and could result in reduced track time.

No instructor feedback will be offered by Pitt Race. Once the Pitt Race race-control officials know the number and types of cars coming, they will divide the cars into groups of similar configurations and performance. 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.

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

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