Of course.

The best place I know of is the Bob Bondurant course.
It's in Phoenix Arizona.
Go to their web site and you'll see.
It costs about 2000 US to take the 2 week course.
Check it out and post a reply to tell me what you think.

I'm close.

I've done my two SCCA schools. I should have done one of my two races, but the car broke during the last school. I will have my SCCA regional license before the end of the year.

I've been to the Spenard-David Racing School (now Bridgestone) in Canada. David Empringham, two-time (almost three-time) Formula Atlantic champion and Indy Lights Champion, was my instructor.

I also raced karts for a number of years.

BTW, most racing schools will not qualify you for a license. If you prearrange it with the SCCA, a number of approved professional driving schools can count as your SCCA schools. There are a very few professional school programs that can qualify you for a license, but they are significantly more expensive.

Cool

I have my ANDRA Drag racing licence in Australia.

Didnt have to go to school but had to demonstrate control of the car during a burnout and a couple of half track passes in front of the officials. :smoka:

Man, you aussie's got it easy. Its very hard to become a competitive racer in north america as there is strict standards you have to be able to pass for safety reason for yourself, and others on the track. I wish to get my SCCA lisence but at the moment I have other financial priorities(READ: bills).

ha ha, i get beer at discount because I buy in bulk. J/K For real i never drink and drive those are meant to be taken as seperate events D&D is stupid and pointless. I like to drink beer but I dont have the money to drink anywhere near as much as I'd like to. And I never pay for ass so thats not a financial issue.

Yes, i have a Nascar License. You must have one in order to race were i do. The reason its a Nascar License is because...the speedway i race at is a Nascar Sanctioned track. Otherwise it is sponsored by Nascar. Some dirt tracks have track licenses too but they are not Nascar licenses b/c is dirt lol
