Refund Policy
If you notify PVGP Race Operations or our Registrar before your tires hit the track on Friday morning, your race entry will be fully refunded. If you do not notify the PVGP, your entry will not be refunded. If your car breaks during Thursday’s Test & Tune, your weekend race entry fee will be refunded, not your Test & Tune fee.

All racers, crew and volunteers will need to complete and sign the PIRC Track Waiver and the PVGP SpeedWaiver to enter the facility. The link will be available in July. It only takes a few minutes to complete online now – if you wait to do it at the track it could take 10 or more minutes since the wifi is not fast.
