  • Racing Schools

    These are those "racing schools" that allow you to drive either a NASCAR or an Indy Car at certain tracks. Not advocating, just informing.

    I will not go to a Mario driving school, ever.

      Why not?! Mario is a nice Italian boy. You just want to kiss his cheek.

        The best racing school in the country . . . er . . . North America: Bridgestone Racing Academy. Period!

        http://www.race2000.com/

        You race real open-wheel cars. You are taught the art of racing, not driving fast. Heal-toe, passing, and standing and rolling starts.

        I have done it and it blows away the Petty experience.

          That's the difference...driving "experience" versus driving "school."

          Some people don't way to shell out the extra bucks for "professional training" and "licensing."

          $400 and you can drive an Indy-style open-wheel car with minimal training.

          SOLD!

            Don't forget about the Bondurant schools either.
            But that's just my opinion!

              I’ve been through the Bondurant (3-day Hi performance driving and 4-day GP RR) courses and the Petty Driving Experience at LMS and they are two entirely different things. Both were a blast I might add!

                I went to the Bridgestone Racing School 9 years ago and it was excellent. They teach how to drive first, get it out of the way, and then you spend the rest of the time learning racing. A+++.
                And don't forget the heat!

                  I prefered the Russell Racing School. I thought the Bridgestone School was geared towards F2000 and F1. If you want to get daring there is always the Derek Daley Racing School at LVMS.

                    I went the Skip Barber route. Their school, then their regional series. At the time it was arguably the best bang-for-the-buck that could be found. Then Skip sold out to a new group, and they changed the race series formats into a confusing mess. But it's still a great place to go--that is, for no-compromise RACE training, rather than "the experience".
