What to do about automatic parking brake for DCT at track?

I have been told not to use the parking brake at the track after running the car. My question is on my DCT car if I turn it off the brake automatically comes on. What should I do? Park the car on a level surface and leave it running?

Is there a way to over-ride the automatic parking brake?

It's not a parking brake. It's and engine/flywheel lock.

The parking brake/ebreak is separate and manually activiated. Just turn the car off it will go into park. Don't pull the parking brake.

Automatic Brake?

So you are saying when the car automatically goes into P none of the actual brakes are touching the rotors?

that's correct. Parking brake is manually operated. Going into P is fine.

I actually use wheel chocks to keep the car from moving when I want the car to idle for a few minutes to cool off while in neutral.
