Bertil Roos Racing School teaches art of car control


The best race car drivers in the world have mastered car control — the art of maintaining control of a car when it has exceeded its threshold of grip, either by design or mistake. This applies to cornering grip, acceleration grip and braking grip.

The Car Control Clinic is one of several specialty programs designed for advanced students at Bertil Roos Racing School. The goal is simple where you become comfortable with being uncomfortable. You will practice car control and line correction techniques to a point where driver response is more automatic and methodical.

Without this type of program, drivers are left to their own devices to not only learn the art of car control but to build experience and a comfort zone. This often takes multiple “moments” on track, usually at high speed, and generally in a slight panic.

This Bertil Roos program is designed to provide nearly constant practice with multiple “moments” in a safe, low-speed environment. The extensive use of BRRS’ patented slide cars, and other tools, facilitate learning and practice in a real environment as opposed to an artificial, watered down, skid pad.

Slide cars and race cars are used on both tightened and full courses. A special competition will be held at the end of the day as an extra incentive.

It’s just one of the unique programs offered at Bertil Roos Racing School. Another is the Computer Coaching Clinic, which provides advanced drivers with data-based coaching to aid in the fine tuning of their driving technique, measure the efficacy of various experiments and establish individual base lines to monitor progress in many significant areas.

Also available is the High-Performance Driving Clinic, which helps everyone from a complete novice to a track veteran to become a better driver. Some of the goals of the school are to maximize track time, provide low-cost access to some of the best driving instructors in the world and introduce road racing to a larger and broader cross-section of people than ever before.

Seats to the Car Control Clinic are very limited. Early enrollment is suggested. Call 1-800-RACE-NOW to book your seat to the Bertil Roos Racing School programs.
