Open Pitlane means that you can enter and leave the track whenever you want. Be it for a short break, some work on your car, or adjust the tyre pressures.
You can time your Track Day however it suits you best! This offers you the absolute maximum of track time without having to worry about sticking to a predefined schedule!
Always remember that our Track Days should be nothing but fun! We do not have any room or tolerance for people who take it too seriously and endanger others on track, by driving on the absolute limit trying to set a new lap record.
Use the fact that we only organise OPEN PITLANE Track Days, which means that you have a minumum of 6:30h of track time per Track Day - more than you could ever use. There is no rush!
