VIR - 5 Day Road Racing Week
F-2000 Race Car
It doesn’t get more real than this! When you enroll in one of our road racing programs, you’ll be strapped into a real 150 hp Formula 2000 race car. When properly driven, our cars will accelerate from 0-60mph in 4.2 seconds, reach 130mph in the draft, pull up to 2g’s in the corners, and stop on a dime.
The reclined seating position, open cockpit, and Indy-style body work provide you with a unique experience. Your view of the track mimics what the pros see when they are battling it out, head-to-head, on TV. Wide tires and front and rear wings make sure your butt is firmly glued to the track as you rocket around, lap after lap.
Safety, of course, is our highest priority. Our cars have been designed and engineered to be among the safest in the industry. The body panels are form-fitted to a stiff chassis and welded steel roll cage to ensure our drivers experience the fastest, safest laps of their lives.
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.
Day three. 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.
