Pittsburgh International Race Complex
Pittsburgh International Race Complex is a 400-acre motorsports facility featuring a 2.8-mile road course with 19 corners and multiple elevation changes, a .83 mile Wilson Karting Track that is one of the fastest around, and a 6-acre skid pad for specialized training in performance and evasive driving maneuvers including autocross and drifting. Pitt Race offers something for all motorsports enthusiasts.
Pitt Race has increased the track length and 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 improvements 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.”
Full Track Circuit
Catering to sports cars, formula cars, motorcycles and more, the main track complex offers three different configurations. The North Track, originally opened in 2002, is 1.6 miles long and the South Track, which was added in 2015, covers 1.2 miles. Combined, the full course is 2.78 miles in length with 19 turns and features significant elevation changes, following the natural terrain that winds throughout the 427-acre property. Both courses have been completely resurfaced and can be combined or run independently. Track video on YouTube
