Test and Tune

PIRC Pitt Race logo - 2016The PVGP Test & Tune is an opportunity for PVGP racers to test their race cars and fine tune them for our upcoming races – both at Pitt Race Complex that weekend and Schenley Park the following weekend. It is held at Pitt Race Complex and open only to PVGP race participants.

The Test & Tune Day is a Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix sponsored event. It is run under the control of the PVGP with proceeds going to our charities.

The day will be run time certain and equipped with ALS, Tow, and Fire. All cars are expected to participate in spirit with vintage racing rules and PVGP has the right to reject any applicant for unsafe behavior.

You must be entered as a racer on either PVGP race weekend. You can register for Test & Tune on your race application or you may pay with cash or check on-site that day, but we will not be able to process credit cards.
