Bertil Roos Race Weekend @ Poc S/EPocono Raceway
About this event
The Bertil Roos Racing School Race Series
The Bertil Roos Racing School's in house racing series is the best place for competitive road racing mixed with driver training. Drivers of all skill levels compete in our series, ranging from long time Bertil Roos Racing Series veterans to newcomers who have recently graduated from our schools. No matter what your skill level is, you are guaranteed to be involved in battles with other drivers at your skill level, and learn new road racing knowledge along the way.
The beauty of the Bertil Roos Racing Series is that the learning never ends. The Bertil Roos Racing School's instructors are always an open source of knowledge for any driver that attends our events. The more experienced, veteran drivers are also always willing to give advice to their lesser experienced competitors. Even though competition on track is very high and intense, the off track setting is quite relaxed, and drivers are always able to converse with one another and our staff about their favorite sport.
The Bertil Roos Racing Series is also conducted in a unique manner to make the event more interesting and more fun. Upon registration, drivers will be separated into 2 groups via a random number drawing. There is no difference between these groups. The purposes of this are:
- To make competitors sharing cars work together throughout the event.
- Offer the chance that the competitive field of a group varies from event to event.
- Allow for more racing to occur via two groups instead of one.
- Allow for drivers to watch a racing event occur in the same cars they are competing in.
- To accommodate a racing packed schedule with minimal empty time.
The Bertil Roos Racing School utilizes in-house built formula cars that were designed by the school founder himself, Bertil Roos. 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! Each car is race prepped for every event and given a maintenance check every morning. The cars are given a neutral setup at the beginning of every event and offer the ability for some setup changes during the event at the discretion of the drivers assigned to the car.
Rain? Of Course We Race In The Rain!
The Bertil Roos Racing School will not postpone or cancel an event due to rain. Rain is a part of road racing and we will keep it that way. Our cars are given a setup that allows for dry and wet conditions so no additional prep is necessary when the rain begins. Our instructors are always on hand to offer wet racing advice to any driver with minimal rain racing experience. Only weather that poses a danger to the drivers and cars will yield postponement or cancelation of the event. Please refer to our website, racenow.com, or call our office to learn about our weather-related cancelation policy.
