This program is designed for those seeking additional seat time for driver improvement, vehicle and chassis tuning, and for those who want more 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, and it is also a great opportunity to shake down your car or test for an upcoming race.

Open wheel cars are permitted in certain Test & Tune events. Please see for class listings. No instructor feedback will be offered by Pitt Race.

Once the Pitt Race officials know the number and types of cars coming, they will divide the cars into groups of similar configurations and performance.
