Bertil 1/2 Day & 1 Day Road Racing SchoolPalm Beach International Raceway
About this event
The Bertil Roos Racing School Half Day and One Day Adventure Schools are perfect for motorsports enthusiasts to get a taste of what road racing is like, or to learn more about their favorite sport.
A High-Speed Schedule For An Adrenaline Driven Sport!
Upon registration completion, the programs will begin with an introductory classroom that will teach students about the fundamentals of driving a race car on track. Materials covered range from apexes and brake points, to entry and exit speeds, as well as basic track etiquette and rules. After this classroom, students will immediately take to the track in our school street cars. This segment will allow the students to gain an in depth preview of the track they will be on; and driving the street cars themselves will allow our instructors to make an initial assessment of their driving from the passenger seat. After this segment has concluded, students will undergo a brief transitional classroom that teaches them our use of flags on track, and the operation of our race cars. Once this final classroom is complete, the students will be conducting the rest of their program in our race cars for two or four 20 minute sessions, depending on the program.
Learn At YOUR Speed, Not Someone Else's!
We at the Bertil Roos Racing School believe that students learn best at their own pace. We are one of the few schools in the world that do not use the lead-follow method of track time teaching. We allow a controlled version of passing during on track sessions so that students may drive our race cars at their own pace but not have to worry about dangerous passing situations.
Get the Most Out Of Your High-Speed Day!
Students will be able to get the most out of their day via detailed critiquing by our instructors. Between on track sessions, students will have an opportunity to rest and hydrate while they receive valuable feedback from our instructors. This is also an opportunity for students to pick at our instructors’ brains after having been on track in the racecars themselves.
Custom Made Formula Cars Built For Safety And Speed!
The new Bertil Roos Formula R/T-2000 offers a unique handling characteristic that will appeal to both the beginner drivers, looking to develop their skills, and Bertil Roos veterans looking to take on a new challenge. This car is used exclusively at Palm Beach International Raceway and in our Bertil Roos Winter Race Series.
The car boasts a 140 hp, 2 liter, 4-cylinder, fuel injected engine and a 5-speed sequential transmission. Weighing just 1,400 lbs, the R/T 2000 is capable of speeds up to 130 mph and accelerates from 0-60 in just 4.5 seconds.
In the corners, the R/T-2000 can achieve up to 2g’s of lateral force on high performance radial tires. This allows students to feel both maximum traction and learn the subtleties of slip angle management that is paramount to mastering performance driving.
Rain? Of Course We Race In The Rain!
The Bertil Roos Racing School will continue with the scheduled program rain or shine. Drivers whom experience a day in the rain will learn that driving in wet conditions is an art all on its own, and is more fun than it sounds. Driving in wet conditions is an opportunity to gain a good amount of car control experience and and really learning to feel what the car is doing. The only weather that will cause an event cancelation is stormy or extreme weather conditions. Please refer to our website (racenow.com) or call our office to learn about our weather-related cancelation policy.

The Bertil Roos Racing School will provide loaner safety equipment to our students at no extra charge. If a student wishes to bring their own equipment, he/she must first have it approved by one of our instructors. Motorcycle helmets with an "M" are not permitted. Only helmets with a SNELL SA rating will be approved for use in our cars.
Closed-toed shoes are required. Boots are not recommended as they will not fit well in the cockpits of our cars. Loose, comfortable, but not baggy, clothing is recommended for the best comfort in our cars. Gloves are also recommended for driving our cars, but not required.
We recommend that all students review the provided important information packet, textbook, and track map prior to attending the program. This allows for a better understanding and reference throughout the program.
We ask that all attending students try to gain some familiarity with a standard/manual car transmission prior to attending our program. Our racecars' transmissions are standard and non-synchronized. Prior familiarity will allow operating our cars to be much less stressful.
All minors under the age of 18 participating in our event must be accompanied by a consenting adult. A valid driver's license is required to drive our racecars, but the Bertil Roos Racing School will make exceptions based on past driving experience. Please call our office to request an exception.
