See what others are saying about their experience with Bertil Roos Racing School.
Every time I am behind the wheel, whether I am in my daily driver going to work or on the track with my car club, I hear Dennis in my head. His explanations of why and how to maneuver a car are so complete, authentic and masterful that I can’t help but automatically refer back to them again and again.
Dennis may initially come across as “just” a petrol head but spend a few hours in his presence and you will find his understanding of the mechanics and physics involved in all things car and racing are extensive and impressive. Dennis has more than just knowledge about driving – he has wisdom. Dennis shares that wisdom with his students in a way that leads to true understanding and real confidence behind the wheel.
I have taken several classes with Dennis through Bertil Roos Racing and have gone from being an average driver to the most safe, confident and proficient driver in my circle of friends and family. Since taking courses from Dennis, there has never been a road situation that I could not intelligently and calmly handle. Whether I am pulling up to a stop light or maneuvering a sudden obstacle in the road I remember Dennis’ approach to driving and I make the right judgment call.

The best thing I ever did for my driving was attend the Bertil Roos schools. After which, I participated in the series. Today, I owe many wins and fast laps to the instructors and the method. I am happy to still see many of my Roos competitors on the track and call many of them friends.

A shout out to Dennis and the gang! The best school in every measurable respect.

There is no comparison for the level of training, racing, safety and fun environment at any price…

This is absolutely the best formula race school and race competition in the USA. Dennis is a dedicated, exceptional instructor and his staff is SUPER also. I am a 75 yr old licensed FF driver and have been to almost every school you might consider. Bertil Roos schools both with Bertil and Dennis, Skip Barber multiple times(thanks to Bruce McInnes), Bill Scott at Summit Point

I went to the open wheel 1 day school in the Poconos last year. The instructors were ace and the whole day was very well run. I’ve done 10 years of autocross, 6 years of track days and I still learned so much in this class! It was an experience that I will never forget!
– Christopher Camacho
When my son was moving from karts to cars I chose Bertil Roos at Pocono. At that point, things are getting serious and you want to know you are learning how to be a solid and safe driver. Not only for yourself, but for the others you share the track with. Top level instructors and the classroom focus to be an analytical driver were key. And we had a great time and still keep in touch with some classmates.

The difference between just being along for the ride and being a pilot really comes down to one thing: Eye Technique. Back when I was learning to race and going to every racing school I could, I was lucky enough to speak with Bertil Roos on the phone–he knew what my great weakness was in the car even though we never met… how did know?? It was simple for him to know really–since I had never went to Bertil Roos Racing School, I was Not using my eyes properly. I did the 3 day, then the advanced, scores of lapping days and of course the race series. I was a driver who raced before I went–But they helped make me a racing driver.

Getting the dates wrong and showing up one day late for the 3 day Advanced course was the best thing that ever happened to me. After begging Dennis to let me proceed anyway (I had already been coming on and off for several years) he took me under his wing since everyone was already assigned, with the proviso that if I could not keep up I was history. Dennis was the first to treat me as a racer and not just a student. He focused on the psychological and told me how I was defeating myself. I still hear his words especially when I am overly aggressive and paying too much attention to everyone else. Thank you Dennis and Bertil Roos Racing School.

I just got done with the 5 day at PBIR and it was great. Fantastic atmosphere, great instructors, detailed information to help you with what matters, getting that car around the track properly, safely and as fast as you comfortably can. I just signed up for the Grad camp, and my first series race in NJ. If you want to learn the right way from quality instructors, this is the place to be!

From someone that has been to 5 of your schools, I can say that the equipment and personnel are top of class. Your instructors are precession and never talk down to anyone. I have learned more in those outings than I learned in 6 years of SCCA and PHA racing. Thanks again for your indulging me in something I love to do. I have so much to still learn and will be back.
To anyone that thinks differently. Go see for yourself.
Be Fast. Be Safe.

I attended the Roos Grand Prix racing school in 1988 as my high school graduation gift from my parents. I raced karts tq midgets micro springs and a modified a few times and the eye technique developed at the Roos school helped me to perform at a high level in whatever I have driven. It not only helped me to be a better race car driver but learning to trust my peripheral vision while focusing down the road makes driving on the street safer as well.
