PPIR Open Track / Autocross Tech and Orientation
Wednesday we kick off our on-track activities for those participating in the open track and autocross.
Ever wanted to see what your Mustang could do without the speed limits of public roads? Here’s your chance! Following a mandatory tech inspection, you’ll have the opportunity to drive your Mustang at speed on the legendary Pikes Peak International Raceway, including the ROVAL.
This is NOT a racing event, your laps will not be timed and you will not be “racing” against other vehicles. There are strict rules for passing in an effort to minimize any on track trouble and maximize safety for those who choose to participate.
Participants can choose to take part in the morning or afternoon session (or both!)
Don’t want to go fast but want to check out the track? There will be complimentary parade laps from noon – 1pm and 4-5pm for all RMMR registered participants. No need to register, just show up.
Autocross Early Tech
Autocross Early Tech Session is required and will occur during the afternoon Open Track sessions from 1pm – 4pm at the PPIR infield parking lot. An autocross orientation meeting will take place at the PPIR West Lot at the Welcome Building from 4:30pm – 5:30pm. Those that wish to walk the course will be allowed to do that up to 6:15pm at the West Lot.
Thurs. June 15th
For those interested in the agility and handling of their Mustang, we recommend the RMMR autocross. This timed event is sure to test the handling of your Mustang and your skills as a driver. The goal is to make it through a course of traffic cones as fast as possible without hitting any.
This event takes place in a large open parking lot outside PPIR, and away from barricades and hazards. Cars go one at a time. Autocross is one of the safest and easiest ways to dip your toe into racing your car.
New for this year, all Autocross participants will not be required to work as volunteers during the Autocross. In the past those who drove in the Autocross would need to volunteer their time to help out as corner workers, time keepers, grid handlers, etc. That will not be the case for our 2023 Autocross. Everyone who signs up for the Autocross can just drive the course during their scheduled session and then sit back and enjoy watching the others race before and afterwards. The PPIR staff will be taking care of all required duties that the volunteers did before.
