About this event
Two Racing Schools That Make Up An Entire Week Of High Speed Fun!
The Bertil Roos Road Racing Week is comprised of 2 different road racing schools: The Bertil Roos 3 Day Road Racing School, and the Bertil Roos 2 Day Advanced School. When Registering, you have the option of signing up for either one or both of these training-intense schools.
Bertil Roos 3 Day Road Racing School
This is a school that is intended for motorsports enthusiasts to take their first step in their motorsports hobby or racing career. Students will learn all the necessary fundamentals to driving a racecar on track at a high performance level. Students will be learning and practicing a broad range of knowledge and skills. Below are just a few of the quality reasons that so many students have attended our program and became successful in the world of motorsports.
- Plenty of classroom instruction ensures that students are able to learn the fundamentals of road racing in a stress free environment.
- Students will be assigned to their instructors to form a friendship that allows for more focused and more relaxed training.
- The utilization of street cars on the racetrack means that students will get hands-on training with immediate feedback.
- The Bertil Roos Racing School's patented "slidecars" give the best car control and hand-eye technique training in the world!
- Controlled passing allows for students to learn and progress at their own pace, not someone else's.
The Bertil Roos 3 Day Road Racing School is a prerequisite for the Bertil Roos 2 Day Advanced Racing School. Students whom complete this program will also have gained all the necessary knowledge and skills to drive a car on track at a performance level. Students whom complete this program will also be eligible to apply for a vintage racing license and other performance driving organizations.
Bertil Roos 2 Day Advanced Racing School
*This program requires the completion of the Bertil Roos 3 Day Road Racing School or other organization equivalent.
This school is all about passing and competing. Students whom attend this event will experience what it's like to be on track going wheel to wheel with other competitors' cars. The Bertil Roos Racing School implements this exposure via a gradual and safe process.
The first day of this program is entirely about getting students accustomed to driving with other cars on track. Starting off with practicing passing lines and ending with counter-attacks and taking advantage of opportune track situations.
The second day of this program will simulate a condensed competition weekend. Instructors will guide their students through tactically conducting race event practice, qualifying, and races.
By completing the Bertil Roos 2 Day Advanced School, students will be eligible to apply for various competition race licenses. For more information about applying for a race license, feel free to contact our office.
The Best Cars And Equipment For The Job!
The Bertil Roos Racing School heavily utilizes our patented Slidecars for the best car control and eye-technique training in the world. Our Slidecars simulate a lack-or-traction situation. No other piece of equipment in the world does this job like our slidcars.
It doesn’t get more real than this! When you enroll in one of our race programs, you’ll be strapped into a real 150 hp Formula 2000 race car. When properly driven, our cars will accelerate from 0-60mph in 4.2 seconds, reach 130mph in the draft, pull up to 2g’s in the corners, and stop on a dime.
The reclined seating position, open cockpit, and Indy-style body work provide you with a unique experience. Your view of the track mimics what the pros see when they are battling it out, head-to-head, on TV. Wide tires and front and rear wings make sure your butt is firmly glued to the track as you rocket around, lap after lap.
Safety, of course, is our highest priority. Our cars have been designed and engineered to be among the safest in the industry. The body panels are form-fitted to a stiff chassis and welded steel roll cage to ensure our drivers experience the fastest, safest laps of their lives.
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.

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.
