Motor Racing Schools

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
The wife has decided she would really like to go to a racing school, for a 'civilian' racing course. Two or three days, in open wheel cars, no intention of becoming a professional driver. She's 53, a very competent and 'assertive' driver, and just wants to drive fast, in a controlled environment.

There's Alan Berg Racing here in Calgary (and other locations) and I've looked up Bob Bondurant, because I've heard the name somewhere along the line.

But I don't really know too much about the market, and would really like to get her into a good, safe and 'fun' program. Does anyone have any personal knowledge or recommendations for a driving school in the west? I'm open to anywhere in the western provinces or states, figuring we can make a bit of a vacation out of the whole thing. (Plus, if I do this, maybe I can talk her into next year's ESA).

Highly recommend. I've done the 3-day Racing School and the 2-day Advanced Racing School. Both are in Formula Dodge openwheel cars. The 3-day school uses a car with an un-synchronized 4-speed tranny, for three day, you get a sequential box, wings and slicks.

Guys - Thanks a bunch. The website looks great, and a visit to California looks like it could be fun.

Hopefully she won't take it too much to heart, on the streets here.

This is the one I've always wanted to do...
