Driver Training Information:

This driver training course is your first step to competition racing with ICSCC. You will not only receive a high level of in-car instruction to learn the "racing line" at Pacific Raceway, but also classroom instruction that covers everything from race preparation, car control, passing protocol and advanced flag recognition. If you are not sure about getting involved in competitive racing, this course is great for taking your HP Lapping skills to the next level. All of our instructors are competition-licensed race car drivers with many race miles of experience. 

After successful completion of this driving course you will earn a certificate that qualifies you for a Novice racing license from the International Conference of Sports Car Clubs (ICSCC). You will be given all the details about the ICSCC Novice Program and how to take that next step at the end of the day.
