Race organizers require tech track inspections before allowing personal cars on the track to ensure safety for all drivers involved. We do inspections for Porsche Club of America, Audi Club of North America, New Jersey Motorsports Park Racetrack, and more.

The tech track inspection is a general evaluation of your vehicle which will cover brakes, suspension, fluid leakage, brake fluid moisture content, and tire percentages.

  • The brake inspection will check brake pad life, rotor condition, and ensure fluid quality.
  • Tire inspections will check that your tires have proper tread.
  • There should be no fluid leaks in your vehicle.
  • No suspension components should be loose or excessively worn.

Tech inspections are generally performed annually but this can vary depending upon the requirements of the sanctioning body. Be sure to check with the race organizer for their policies on inspections.
