If you have little or no racing experience and want to climb the
rungs of the racing ladder quickly, this program is for you (no prior
experience necessary). Upon completion of our 5-Day course, you will be
eligible to enter the Roos Formula 2000 Racing Series and will have
fulfilled all of the requirements for an SCCA license.
The 5-Day program consists of the 3-Day Road Racing School,
followed immediately by the 2-Day Advanced Road Racing School. Simply
put, it offers you the most racing bang for your buck.
Day one starts with a
brief classroom session, followed immediately by a track session in one
of our patented slide cars. Then, some trackside demonstrations by the
instructors, followed by an additional classroom session and on-track
practice with one of our street cars.
After a short introduction to the racecars, safety equipment,
safety flags, and a short discussion about racing etiquette, we finish
the day with two track sessions in the racecars.
Day two begins with
another brief classroom session, followed by another session in the
slide cars or street cars. This track session’s objective is to ingrain
every bump, wrinkle, and visible marker into your racing mindset.
Four additional track sessions in the racecars add to your
knowledge gained the previous day, applying theory to the real world.
You will be given an abundant amount of seat time, practicing and
perfecting the skills required to advance to the final day.
You’ve trained forty-eight hours for this day. Time to apply your
new-found skills and acquire the additional advanced techniques required
to devour the track and squeeze every last tenth of a second out of
yourself. A slide car session is combined with FIVE track sessions in
the racecars, working on those little nuances that trim the last few
tenths off your lap times.
Day four starts with a
brief classroom session, followed immediately by a track ride-around in
one of our street cars. Next you’ll climb into one of our racecars and
go wheel-to-wheel and nose-to-tail for four sessions with the
instructors, as they show you the safest and most effective passing
techniques. Other activities include drafting, practice race starts,
qualifying strategies and racing tactics.
Day five is structured
like a race day. Practice, qualifying, practice starts and two 8-lap
races will fill your day. Each track session is preceded by a classroom
session explaining the techniques to use and the goals to shoot for in
that respective session. It’s like participating in your first race,
with instructors watching and helping you every step of the way.
