2017 Bertil Roos F-2000 Series

The Bertil Roos F-2000 Race Series will open its 2017 season on March 26, at Palm Beach International Raceway in Florida.

Now in its 35th consecutive season, the formula car series remains the least expensive arrive and drive series in the country. The eight event, 16 race series will also make stops at Dominion Raceway in Virginia, as well as multiple stops at New Jersey Motorsports Park and Pocono Raceway. The end of the year non-points Fewkes Enduro will be held at Roebling Road Raceway near Savannah, GA.

“We take pride in promoting inexpensive ‘arrive and drive’ racing for our participants,” noted Roos CEO Dennis Macchio. “The emphasis is on safe, low cost, ‘even playing field’ competition, where driving skill is the determining variable.”

The series has been the starting point for many past and present pro drivers, while remaining a long-term alternative for many experienced racers.

“We have the perfect mix of older, seasoned racers, and young guns looking to climb the career ladder” explains Macchio. “Emphasis is on maintaining a low cost, etiquette oriented environment that satisfies the appetite of a wide variety of racers and experience levels. It is a series that sharply raises the learning curve, due to both talent and experience levels of our various drivers.”

Both the number, and cost of crashes are the lowest in the industry, a tradition that the promoters intend to continue.

“We embrace hard, clean driving. We have a very low tolerance for clowns. And there is zero opportunity for a driver to ‘buy a championship,’” Macchio explains. “It is why we have, and will continue to be a special place to race.”

Roos Announces Two New Marketing Partners

 Roos Announces Two New Marketing Partners

Long Pond, PA…..The Bertil Roos Racing School, today, announced the addition of two new sponsors for the 2016 season, Piloti Driving Shoes and the Hagerty Insurance Agency.

We love to work with and promote companies and Brands that stand out from the rest of the motorsports community” said Roos President, Dennis Macchio, “and these two companies have a long time history of excellence in our business.”

Hagerty has been a long time insurance provider for vintage race cars, and classic cars. In fact, its excellent reputation for service has made it the largest collector car insurance company in the world. “We’re collectors, we race, and we’re fans” says a Hagerty spokesperson. “Like the Roos School, we’re passionate about the sport, and there’s no substitute for passion.”

Anyone who has spent time in a racing paddock is familiar with Piloti footwear. While they make an excellent racing shoe, their uniqueness is in the area of paddock products, where durability, comfort and yes, style, are critical. Their wide array of styles and colors have always placed them at the center of the market for performance related footwear.

Information on both companies can be obtained by contacting the Bertil Roos Racing School or the companies directly at www.piloti.com and www.hagerty.com.  Roos will also be carrying Piloti inventory at its Pocono Race Gear store, located at its headquarters in Blakeslee, Pennsylvania.

Long Pond, PA… The Bertil Roos Racing School just announced a new slate of racing schools, to be conducted in Ford Mustangs, throughout  the 2016 season.
The announcement follows the development of a new joint venture between the school and DeMonte Motorsports.
“We have been working at developing a GT School for some time” said Roos President Dennis Macchio. “Given our commitment to high quality driving and racing education, it took an extensive search to find the right cars and personnel to undertake this venture.”
Macchio, formerly a part owner and manager at the legendary Bridgehampton Race Circuit, finally decided to pull together some old associates from that era. “The people at DeMonte Motorsports, Anthony DeMonte (owner), and Jason Kreth (Director of Operations)are people who have been doing things right for a long time” said Macchio. “They get it. When we looked at our options, and began discussions with the group, things fell into place quite quickly.”
Macchio feels that the new Bertil Roos / DMS Mustang School will fulfill a long awaited need to provide quality driver education in a GT environment.
“Our commitment to formula car schools remains unchanged, but this new venture provides an excellent alternative to those wishing to develop their skills in a closed wheel, closed cockpit environment.”
The Bertil Roos / DMS Mustang School will begin within the month, with 1 Day, 3 Day and Advanced Schools as well as Lapping Days scheduled at a number of venues. While dates are still being worked out for some programs, two 3 Day Schools have already been announced at New Jersey Motorsports Park on July 11-13, 2016 and at the brand new Dominion Raceway on November 7-9, 2016.

Long Pond, PA… The Bertil Roos Racing School announced today that it has entered into an agreement to conduct schools at the brand new Dominion Raceway, located just south of Washington DC.
“Dominion is ideally located to service a large number of our students,” said Roos President, Dennis Macchio. “It is close to Washington, Richmond and major markets in North Carolina. A great number of our former students come from these areas. We feel that this location will better serve both our ongoing and future customer base.”
The school also cites the enthusiasm of the ownership and management of the new facility as an important factor in adding the venue to its list of tracks.
“We really like the vibe we get from the group that runs the track. They are on the same page as us, in a variety of areas, including a commitment to doing things right,” said Macchio.
The school will begin holding programs in the latter part of the year, including three day schools in its formula cars as well as a three day program in its DMS Mustangs.

Blakeslee, PA

NASA

The Bertil Roos Racing School has announced that it is now authorized to issue National Auto Sport Association (NASA) licenses to graduates of its 5 Day or Advanced School Programs. All past graduates of these programs will also be able to apply, with certificates of completion included in their application.
“We are pleased to announce this new relationship,” said Dennis Macchio. “In a time where the competition between sanctioning bodies has caused some to lower their license education requirements, NASA has stood firm. Both organizations place an emphasis on proper training and safety. We share the belief that respect for the sport is essential.”
The relationship between NASA Northeast Region and the Bertil Roos Racing Schools goes back many years each of which respects the others quality of instruction and the comprehensive race programs each group offers.
This cooperative effort is designed to help promote quality motorsports in the Northeast Region as well as other Regions in the country. For those looking to develop as drivers you now have more options and more places to race.
