The Three Day Racing School is every driver’s gateway to motorsports and racing. With a curriculum that combines classroom sessions with practical hands on seat time this is Skip Barber's keystone program. The Three Day Racing School is a perfect starting point for racers interested in obtaining a club, professional or international racing license and the motorsports enthusiast alike! In this unique program, students master the fundamentals of racing in classroom and driving sessions. The cars used in the program are our Skip Barber Formula Car.

Day One:

In the morning, students will spend some time in the classroom and then out on the autocross course where Skip Barber instructors teach the group how to operate the racecar in preparation for on-track training. Students then review the proper racing line, race style downshifting, threshold braking, and cornering techniques. All of these exercises are important in helping the racer find their “limit” inside the race car and discovering the car’s true capability.  After lunch, we head to the track for lead-follow lapping.

Day Two:

On the second day, there is a substantial amount of time spent on stop box lapping sessions while getting instant feedback in the race car. Stop box lapping gets the racer as comfortable as possible in the car with extensive repetition, feedback and progression lap after lap.  Students will also do additional braking exercises and learn to read the various racing competition flags used worldwide. After lunch, students have a brake and tech talk before an intense exercise of proper braking techniques.

Day Three:

The last day of the school incorporates racecraft. The student puts everything that they have learned to the test. Students will practice real racing starts and restarts, complete several passing and drafting exercises, and get plenty of open lapping sessions.


Program Cost - $6,995
