About this event
Bertil Roos Data Analysis Clinic
*This program requires the completion of the Bertil Roos 2 Day Advanced School, wheel to wheel license or other organization equivalent.
This program is designed to provide advanced drivers with a data based coaching day that will aid in the fine tuning of their driving technique, measure the efficacy of various experiments, provide a means of comparison with other drivers and instructors, and establish individual base lines to monitor progress in many significant areas.
How It Works
Students will be driving Scandia F-2000 race cars equipped with GPS based data loggers. Critical data, such as lap times, segment times, speed, r.p.m. and bi-axis g-forces will be recorded. Number of sessions and over all track time will be determined based on each individual’s program, but will generally far exceed that of a normal testing day. Data will then be downloaded and made available to drivers. In addition to the generation of a track map, data will be available by session, lap and corner (segment). Between sessions, drivers and instructors will review, analyze, and compare data, with an eye towards identifying problems and improving upon results. Line and technique experimentation will also be encouraged. Basic car setup analysis and experimentation may also be included.
How It Will Help
All drivers, in varying degrees, are faced with limitations that impede their development. In-car information processing, post session recall, and in many cases, objective analysis are among the most significant.
Data acquisition expedites the development process by providing an objective, empirical record of what transpires on the track, and allows for in depth post session analysis. It also records progress from lap to lap and session to session, quantifies the results of experiments, and provides a method of comparison with other drivers.
Goals of the Program
While the intention of the program is to remain flexible, with respect to each driver’s goals and requirements, typical areas the program is aimed at include:
Establishing & reaching braking thresholds
Establishing & reaching cornering thresholds
Improvement in footwork
Finding max entry speed
Developing new techniques
In short, it is an additional tool to help you become a faster and more consistent driver.
Who Is It For?
While this program would almost certainly benefit any driver, it is probably of greatest value to more experienced drivers; those who’s learning curve has begun to flatten out, and are finding it difficult to get that extra “10th.”
Enrollment is limited.
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 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.

For any questions regarding our schools, or applying for race licenses, please contact our office by calling 1-800-722-3669 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please review the following prior to the event.
Students wishing to take the Bertil Roos 2 Day Grad Camp must complete a 2 Day Advanced Road Racing School, have a valid wheel to wheel racing license (example SCCA/FIA competition license) or other organization equivalent, prior to attending that program. Please contact our office for more information regarding prerequisite schools.
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.
Any and all spectators are welcome but must sign our liability waiver during registration for our program. All spectators must also remain within the approved areas on track. Any children must be kept under strict supervision. Any pets brought to the event must remain on a leash or within a vehicle. Rules regarding spectators and pets are put in place for the safety of the spectators, the students/participants, and our staff. The Bertil Roos Racing School reserves the right to ask anyone whom neglects to adhere to our safety regulations to leave the event, however an initial warning will be given upon the first infraction.
