- The track has a high-quality surface and is well maintained.
- The Vehicle Dynamics Area (VDA), 5+ acres of pavement that we’ll be using for a car control activities to refine car handling skills. These include Slalom and Stop, Avoidance and Skidpad exercises.
All types of vehicles are welcome!
In addition to Porsches, we have Audis, BMWs, Corvettes, Lotuses, Mazdas, Minis, Subarus come and participate. All that is required is that you have a technical safety inspection completed by your local mechanic.
Come for a party
In addition on on-track activities the club will also be having a social gathering at the track Saturday Evening. Have your family come up to enjoy good food and drink with friends.
Come see a new facility being built
PittRace is investing millions in upgrading the facility and creating a new 2.88-mile track. The new track is scheduled to open in 2014! The improvements are already underway! The track has paved the driveway to the track and the driver’s paddock area. Pitt Race has added additional “Air-Conditioned” rest rooms with showers in the paddock area. Camping is available, for a nominal weekend fee (slightly more with hook-ups), which is purchased directly with PittRace as you enter the gate.
New to Track Events?
First time? No worries. Our clubs excels in making sure your experience is safe and enjoyable. You will be paired with an instructor who will be knowledgeable in driving your type of car at speed. Your day will begin with a drivers meeting, classroom instruction and then out onto the track. We run rain or shine – many drivers find that running in the rain is just as enjoyable – the major difference is everything just happens at lower speeds.
You will need a SNELL 2005 or newer rated helmet. Helmets can be rented at the track pro shop for new drivers.
If You Prefer Auto-X
An Auto Cross is also going to be held at the track on Sunday on the VDA. Autocross (AX) will give you the opportunity to test yourself and develop your own skill set, as well as learn the limits of your vehicle in a safe and controlled environment. All events are based around a course made of traffic cones and each lap timed for each driver. AX seldom exceeds speeds of 60 mph and has no “wheel to wheel” competition.
