Pitt Race offers something for all motorsports enthusiasts.
The full road racing course features 19 turns following the natural elevation of the landscape of Western, PA. These hills and valleys are highlighted in an 85-foot vertical elevation change between turns 3 and 6 along with numerous blind turns and 4 high speed straight-aways. Pitt Race provides something for all styles of racing, from technical sections and turn where lines mean everything to areas where high horsepower cars can stretch their legs. in 2017, the entirety of the 2.8 surface was repaved and new curbs were added to ensure a world-class experience for all. For those wishing to watch the action, Spectator Hill provides the perfect perch for watching some great racing, with a view of about 70% of the track.
Pitt Race Complex has not only increased the track length, they have also increased their sponsorship. We are pleased to announce that Pitt Race is a Gold Sponsor. Ever since Kathy and Jim Stout took over PIRC they have made improvement each year. Kathy enthusiastically stated “Jim and I are proud to be part of the success of the PVGP and it is our plan to continue with improvements to Pitt Race.” We are excited to partner with them and look forward to the Grand Prix each July.”
