YOU ARE INVITED to join us January 11th and 12th  2014 for the “University of VARA”.  The two day school will once again be held at Buttonwillow Raceway Park.  The curriculum will include classroom sessions, skid pad, braking, and lots of track time.  There will be levels of instruction from beginner to veteran with expert instruction from Danny McKeever, his “Fast Lane” crew and many of VARA’s top drivers.

NOW IS THE TIME!  If you would like to see what vintage racing is all about, or have a friend or neighbor that has always wanted to give it a try, please pass along the information. THIS MAKES A GREAT HOLIDAY GIFT!   A perfect opportunity to share your passion for the sport of Vintage Racing. This event is not a race, it is a school.   Remember the University of VARA counts as two weekends toward your VARA competition racing license. This License is recognized by all major racing orginizations.

This school is open to both street cars and race cars. Though the licensing program is only available to Race prepped cars, both will enjoy professional instruction with lots of track time and one on one in car instruction. Don’t have a race car? You can rent a Toyota pro-celebrity race car (used in the Long Beach grand prix) for less than you may think. When renting a race prepared Toyota (Long Beach GP celebrity cars) contact Danny McKeever at (888) 948-4888.  Danny has arranged special pricing for rental of his Fast Lane Driving School cars. Call early to reserve your car! Thinking about a gift?
