It all starts with the basics and Bertil Roos Racing School’s world-class instruction. Most programs offer an average of one instructor per three students, the most instruction one can get without hiring a private coach.
A multitude of programs have been developed to challenge drivers at all experience levels. The programs start range from half-day and one-day adventure programs to the five-day racing programs or two-day advanced road racing schools which fulfill the requirements to obtain a SCCA license.
Bertil Roos Racing School offers its patented slide cars which let you experience, at low speeds, how it feels to drive a car over its limit. The primary car is the Formula car, which is the most effective car in teaching the arts of performance driving and racing.
Don O’Keefe, a veteran of Silver Crown, sprint cars and midgets, who has raced extensively on the short ovals across North America, found Bertil Roos Racing School to be well above what he even imagined.
“In all my years of racing, attending the Bertil Roos Racing School was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made,” O’Keefe said. “I highly recommend it if you’re considering a racing school whether it be as a beginner, or like me, a veteran of a different form of racing that wanted to learn from the best.”
