RMVR Competition Driving School
+PLUS
Open Lapping days Available for Existing RMVR Racers

This year we have a new format for the Driver’s School weekend to be held April 22-23, 2023 in La Junta, Colorado.  There are four ways to participate.

AS A STUDENT: Intended for those seeking a full Competition License with the goal of becoming an RMVR Licensed Driver.   WARNING - If you take this School, you will become addicted to speed!  Seriously, the acclaimed RMVR Drivers' School is the greatest racing value around.  Period! And you’ll learn to race in a safe and fun manner.  Students must have his/her race car ready, or borrow/rent a race car, they will have to go to another Vintage club school, a Pro Driving School (ie Pettiford) , or wait till 2024. Sorry. 

If you are unfamiliar with this MotorsportsReg system (MSR) here are some instructions and hints.  Basically, if you don't have an MSR account, you need to create one to be able to register for the School.  If the Instructions don't help, please call RMVR's Administrator, Linae, 303-319-3062 for help.

Entry Fee is $525 (To be charged to your credit card after the race weekend.) Sign up before  April 1, 2023 to get the Early Bird $25 discount.   Registration closes 04/17/2023 (midnight).   If you have to register after that, there will be a $100 Late Fee.

In addition to Sat./Sun. activities, there will also be a brief classroom session on Friday evening the 21st from 5:30pm to 6:00pm.  Please plan on attending.

The Registration Desk (to check in, sign waivers, etc.) in the classroom from 2:00 - 5:30 pm on Friday as well as Saturday morning from 7:00-8:00am. Really best to get signed in on Friday evening.
