Always wanted to get your car on the track at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course? This is now the least expensive option! Get some track time at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in your qualified street car (Sorry no SUV's, vans or trucks eligible to participate.) Each group will receive approximately three 20-minute open or lead-follow track sessions, depending on driver qualifications and track conditions.

  • Lead-Follow Sessions
    • For those drivers who have never been on a track before or those who have completed the Acura High Performance Course or Day One of the Acura Racing School.
  • Open Lapping Sessions
    • For those drivers that have completed Day Two and/or Day 3 of the Acura Racing School or the Lapping Program.

To ensure your safety and others participating, all cars are subject to random inspections before and throughout the test sessions. Convertibles are permitted in our Lead/Follow Lapping Sessions only. No convertibles in Open Lapping Sessions unless equipped with competition permitted aftermarket roll cage or a removable hardtop. 

No passengers in any cars at any time. This program requires all drivers to use their own street legal vehicle and provide their own helmets.

Special Race Car sessions are made available for the public using race cars on select Open Test & Tune session dates.
