Track Owners Focus on Bringing Back Exciting Customer and Consumer Events Under CDC Guidelines and Strict Adherence to Safety Regulations
PITTSBURGH, Pa.- Pittsburgh International Race Complex Co-Owner Kathy Stout, a self-described adrenaline junkie, has crafted a robust 2021 season schedule punctuated by a strong mix of customer favorites. Events include programs based on driver development, test and tune, autocross, and returning spectator favorites such as MotoAmerica and portions of the 10-day Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix automotive festival, marking this as one of the most engaging seasons to date.
Located less than 40 miles from its namesake, Pittsburgh International Race Complex, or Pitt Race as it’s more widely known, has a deep customer base due to its course complexity and rolling elevation changes. Pitt Race attracts many popular programs such as Chin Track Days, a leader providing non-competitive track events. This season will also feature several Pitt Race Car Control Clinics, Performance Driver Education (PDE) events, Test and Tune days and near monthly Club Loose drifting, SCCA Solo, N2 Track Days and Track Night in America events.
Pitt Race is a favorite facility among motorcycle riders and enthusiasts and is set to be a highlighted stop on the 2021 MotoAmerica Tour. The three-day event, scheduled to take place August 13 -15, will feature eight different classes of racing. From the highest level of Superbike competition to the introductory MotoAmerica Mini Cup by Motul series, to the newly announced King of the Baggers, fans can enjoy continuous on-track action along with VIP programs, camping, and grid/paddock access.
“In just a few short years, Pitt Race has turned into one of the favorites of the MotoAmerica Series,” said MotoAmerica President Wayne Rainey. “The track is well-liked by the riders and teams and it’s already one of our best-attended races of the season because of the fan friendliness of the track. It really is a great place to watch motorcycle races and we can’t wait to get back there in August.”
In addition to the events taking place on the 2.8-mile combined North and South tracks, Pitt Race karting fans and participants can look forward to expanded league programming, as well as the introduction of more Mini Moto opportunities on the .8-mile Alan Wilson designed karting circuit.

2021 will also see the grand opening of the new Headquarters building, which broke ground in 2020 and will house the administration offices, all full-time employees, a new retail store and more restrooms to serve guests.
“Last year obviously presented many challenges for Pitt Race, but also several opportunities,” said Stout. “We continued our plan of improvements, with a focus on more outdoor recreational events for our community and customers. Our new Headquarters building is under way and we are expanding and adding amenities for the comfort and enjoyment of anyone attending our facility. Additionally, most of our events from the past are returning in 2021, along with new events that will be announced in the upcoming months. We welcome everyone to check out our new PittRace.com website for more information.”
The season schedule is just one more indication of how dedicated Stout is to the local community and her customers. Since their purchase of the facility in 2011, she and her husband Jim have invested in significant facility and infrastructure improvements, as well as programs to ensure the health and safety of their customers, which has attracted more and larger events to the area.
With all these new and returning programs, Pitt Race is quickly becoming known as a world-class racing and entertainment complex in Western Pennsylvania.
