Formula 3 Racing School, Stage 2
Tue, Jun 27, 2017, 7:30 AM – Wed, Jun 28, 2017, 4:30 PM PDT
THE LOLA SRW F3, THE WORLDS FINEST RACING SCHOOL CAR
After a brief look back at the techniques learned in the first stage, Stage 2 opens with a deeper exploration of the art of driving a fully-fledged aerodynamic single-seater, with particular emphasis on corner entry, exit speed maximization, and the benefits of balancing aero downforce characteristics appropriately. Open-lapping sessions will then allow drivers to apply what they’ve learned into faster times on the track, with high-tech data analysis highlighting errors and improving performances even further. The arts of passing and race craft will also be practiced during Stage 2, ensuring that by the end of the second day, participants are sufficiently qualified to apply for an SCCA Full Competition Racing Licence.
1. What is required to drive the Formula 3 Race Car?
Drivers need to know how to operate a manual transmission well ! This is extremely important. Drivers failing to demonstrate proper operation of the transmission will be parked and not allowed to continue the experience. A refund or rescheduling option is not available if the driver fails the manual transmission test.
2. What if I Crash? Am I liable for the cost of repairs?
You are responsible for crash damage. Insurance can be purchased to lower your maximum out of pocket expenses. Please contact us for more information. A copy of your credit card will be collected at check-in
3. Do I need my driver’s license to race one of your SRW-F3s?
No, a license is not required. In fact, our racing school is open to drivers 14 years and older ( if they can drive a manual transmission well ). Please check with a racing consultant if you want to drive, but don’t meet the normal age requirement.
4. What if it rains?
We run the program rain or shine. The F3 cars are well equipped to handle performance driving in wet conditions with rain tires. Of course, in the case of unsafe levels of rain, the program is subject to cancellation. Cancellation Policy
5. Can I bring my own equipment?
Yes, but your driving suit needs to be a minimum of 2-layer nomex, and your helmet must meet current Snell approval. If you need racing shoes, a loaner pair is provided to you at no charge.
6. Can I bring spectators?
Yes, you can bring your fans to watch or take photos for you.
7. How do I get my SCCA license?
You are eligible for an SCCA racing license upon successful completion of Stage 1 & 2 School of Racing courses. Once you have completed the courses, you can request an application from your racing consultant, and they will help you through the process.
7. Will the session be video recorded?
You have the opportunity to rent a GoPro for $100 which includes a 32GB microSD card for you to keep. GoPros are available for purchase at retail price. Mounts are preset in the car for an optimal recording angle. Reserve one early, supplies are limited. Renters are liable for the camera if lost or damaged and will be charged retail price in the event they don’t return a functioning GoPro.
