Learn How To Compete, Learn How To Win!

The Bertil Roos 2 Day Advanced Racing School is the program that introduces drivers to "Racecraft", and learn how to manage themselves during a competition event. Racecraft refers to the skills and tactics that a  driver employs to set-up and execute a pass, as well as, tactically be passed by other competitiors. The first day of this school will be all about honing in on the drivers' racecraft skills. Students will start day 1 off with a brief classroom to learn the basics about drafting and setting up passes. Once the classroom has been concluded, students will be able to warm up and practice their car control skills via a variety of on-track sessions in our school street cars, patented slidecars, and the racecars themselves.

Passing, Passing, Passing

Once the warmup sessions are over, and the students have had time to let what they learned in the classroom to settle into their minds, the instructors will be jumping into the racecars to take to the track with the students. Throughout the remainder of the day, the instructors will demonstrate and practice passing techniques with the students. Students will learn the more advanced portions of racecraft as well, which include counterattacks and taking full advantage of a competitor's mistakes. By the end of day 1, students will have learned all the basics, and a few advanced, techniques included within racecraft and racing wheel to wheel with competitors.

Raceday!

Day 2 of this school will simulate a race event. Throughout the day, students will practice, qualify, and conduct 2 races in competition fashion. Instructors will work with their students throughout the day and have an opportunity to share their own tips and techniques. The practice session will be the final time for students to try anything new, and refine their race line. The qualifying session is when the students will be able to put their driving lines to the test against one another for race start positioning. The races are when the students will have to utilize all they have learned throughout all their motorsports training to come out in the best place possible.

Let's Race!

Day 2, competition day, will conclude with 2 races. The first race will include a couple of practice starts to ensure that the students are adequately trained and have properly practiced how to conduct the most treacherous part of a race. Once the practice starts have concluded, it's race time. The results from race one will decide the drivers' starting positions for race two. These races will be conducted in the exact same fashion, and under the same rules and regulations, as seen in the Bertil Roos Race Series. These races give students some practice and a taste of what it is like to have to pull all your motorsports skills together for an event, as well as a chance for bragging rights.

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.

The Bertil Roos Racing School utilizes in-house built formula cars that were designed by the school founder himself, Bertil Roos. Our cars are competition style Formula 2000 cars that have been redesigned for optimal safety and teaching purposes. Our cars run with a Ford 2.0L, 4 Valve engine that pushes 150bhp. With a weight of only 1200lbs, with the driver, our cars are capable of reaching 130mph in a draft and can stop on a dime! Front and rear wings on our cars allow cornering speeds capable of pulling up to 2Gs! Above performance, our cars have also been redesigned for safety. The entire chassis and roll bar are welded together with rigid steel that makes the car very durable and tank-like. A modern 5 point harness is installed in our cars to keep drivers safely secured as well. Each of our cars have different cockpit sizes, and the seat and pedals are fully adjustable, which allow for virtually any size driver!

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.
