For 2022, the Lone Pine Committee celebrates our 51st running of the LPTT (52nd Anniversary) – Over 50 years of flat-out-fun! You’ll get a big course that’s over 2 miles long, run one way on Saturday and the other on Sunday. This course will provide a challenge for all, whether in modified, prepared, street prepared, stock or vintage. Don’t be left to hear the stories from all your friends of a great weekend – Be There!

CAR PREPARATION / CLASSIFICATION
SOLO, Club Racing, SCCA, IMSA, VINTAGE, NASA, the family sled, or whatever. We will find a class for you. 5 or more pre-registered drivers who want to run their own class may do so (commonly known as rent-a-racer). OPEN EXHAUST if your class allows it. Basic car classification will be per the 2022 SCCA National Solo rule book. Still not sure what class? – provide details on how your car is prepared on the entry form (engine, suspension, tires & wheels, etc.) and we’ll find a place for you. Unsafe vehicles will be turned away. This is not an autocross event, this is a high speed time trial.
