Customer Testimony

Below is a customer testimony one of our instructors received from a student that not only did our school but one of the competition’s as well:

“Hi Taylor – having just gotten back from Lucas, I have to say that I appreciate Bertil Roos even more in many ways. The feedback and concern for the development of each driver you guys show is not being matched elsewhere in the industry, even at the newest, shiniest competitor. I tried it out with some folks who I didn’t think would appreciate the beautiful struggle to master the challenges of the Roos cars – and it was the right call. But for me, your model there is far superior. And slide cars!! So, once again, thanks for the care you guys are putting into the student experience.”

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 and  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 announced today that it has entered into an agreement to conduct schools at the brand new Dominion Raceway, located just south of Washington DC.

NASA and The Bertil Roos Racing School Reach New Agreement​

NASA and The Bertil Roos Racing School Reach New Agreement​

Blakeslee, PA
3/22, 2016

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.


Being involved in the sport of motor racing for more than 35 years, gives one a perspective on the sport that just can’t be duplicated in a short period of time. Having been involved in so many activities within the sport, driver, track owner, manager and designer, team owner, instructor, driving coach and owner of a well known racing school, have provided me with a lifetime of experience and understanding of the sport.
During the last 3 ½ decades, I have seen so much change: driver safety has improved immensely. Driving gear, car design, track layouts and safety barriers have contributed greatly to reducing fatalities and injuries. Suspensions, tires, and gearbox technologies have made cars faster, easier to drive and as a result, more accessible to a larger portion of the population. A proliferation of entry-level car clubs, member driven race tracks and the immense growth of karting are helping to grow the number of “weekend warriors” at a rate not seen since the post WWII years.
But several things have remained as a constant within the sport. First, it continues to be an incredibly expensive activity to participate in. No one can afford to do it as much of it as they would like, and only a few can even partially satiate their appetite. Secondly, it remains an endeavor to which there is no defined, well established portal from which to enter. And third, almost everyone outside of the sport, due to their “interstate heroics” thinks they will be “naturals” on a race track.
It is the combination of these last three realities that makes us long time “racing people” shutter.
“Drive a wreck” race clubs, membership driven race tracks, and dare I say, some racing schools have, in an effort to meet their economic realities, lowered the performance driving education bar to such an extent, that tracks are now often filled with untrained and unsafe drivers. Even worse, they don’t know it. Our sport has evolved into “if you’ve got the money come play. Age, attitude, knowledge, skill, and etiquette are irrelevant.”
Drivers now “solo” on race tracks, often in cars that are beyond their skill levels, after no more than a ½ hour safety class, and some van drive arounds. One can hardly blame them; they are new, and don’t know any better. But the organizers do! Where has the respect for the sport gone?
Which brings me to the purpose of writing this long diatribe, “Do it right, or don’t do it at all.”
In addition to my racing school, I do about 40 days of coaching a year. These clients are, in theory, advanced drivers, who are lacking for a few speed secrets and some “tweaking” of technique. In about 1 out of 4 cases my speed secret advice is “go take a professional driving school.” I learned during my career, and in fact, most of us that have been around for a while know, that there is no skipping class when it comes to this sport. Bertil Roos, the founder of our school, and a European trained driver, once said “In America, it takes more schooling to get a license to cut hair, than it does to drive a racecar.”
Simply said, a proper level of training in this sport will make the track a safer place for not only the trained driver, but for all others sharing the track. And, you know what, you will be much, much better at it. Technique, vehicle dynamics, race craft, race strategy, psychology, line theory, and all of the other “good stuff” just cannot be learned properly “on the fly.” Improvements in technology, safety gear and track access are not going to offset poor training, a large ego and budget. We at the Bertil Roos Racing School would love to see a drop in the number of students that come to us and say “I wrecked my car, and figured I better come here and learn it the right way.”
So the message is simple, “Do it right, or don’t do it at all.”
