Vinnie Virga on the far right

Vinnie Virga has attended multiple racing schools and he has come to a conclusion: Bertil Roos Racing School is simply the best.

He explained while you are learning the craft of a race car driver and once you become one, Bertil Roos Racing School powers ahead of the competition.

“The Bertil Roos Racing School has become the preeminent place for both driver education and for an arrive-and-drive race program,” Virga said. “Having been through Skip Barber, Bob Bondurant, Lucas, BMW M Experience, and many other programs, I can say with confidence, that Bertil Roos has the best instructors, the cars are consistently in the best condition, and as someone that participates in both their winter and summer race series, they do the best job at equalizing the cars.”

It’s the thrill of competition, the allure of pushing man and machine to the limits why most people get into racing. Virga explained that’s why participating in Bertil Roos Summer and Winter Race Series is such a great option. You are driving these great Formula cars which enhance all of your senses and you are not tied down with all the expenses, time and hassles of owning a race car. 

There are no repairs and maintenance to be done. You don’t have any of the aggravation of transporting the car, tools and parts to and from the track. It’s a job that can be exponentially more difficult if a car is wrecked.

“Bertil Roos is by far the most cost-effective way to race when you compare their arrive and drive, to owning your own vehicle or renting, they simply crush the value equation,” said Virga, the 2017 Bertil Roos Race Series rookie of the year.

The education at Bertil Roos Racing School, which has been teaching the art of motor racing since 1975, is second to none. Bertil Roos Racing School instructors have proven track records, racking up race wins and competing against the best drivers in the world. 

For example, BRRS instruction Divina Galica is one of only five women to have entered a Formula One Grand Prix. She finished ahead of legendary drivers Mario Andretti and Clay Regazzoni at the Formula One Race of Champions, and later competed against two-time Indianapolis 500 champion Juan Pablo Montoya after moving to the United States.

In addition, BRRS President John Twardzik is a graduate of the school’s programs and a race winner. He gets a ringing endorsement from Virga for his pace and his knowledge.

“John Twardzik who runs Bertil Roos, is also an incredibly fast driver, and a fantastic instructor, as are the other instructors I have worked with at Bertil,” Virga said. “Whether in data sessions, lead-follow, simply giving you corner advice or there for 3-day, 2-day or Grad camp events, they know how to express things in easy to digest and useful ways.”

One of the major factors in choosing a racing school or competing in a race series is your safety. At Bertil Roos Racing School, you are given the proper instruction and seat time that challenge you and help you develop your race craft. In our series, you’re competing with our racers who have received our world-class instruction.   

“They run a truly safe program, with no shenanigans!  From the office to the mechanics to the overall program on a scale of 1-10 Bertil Roos is an 11, if you get a chance, jump on it to work with these people,” Virga said.
