In a comprehensive half-day program, you will experience classroom instruction where you can pick the brains of renowned professional drivers, car control drills that will allow you to learn to drive these machines with the utmost precision, and time on the track to experience what the pros do every June here at Sonoma Raceway!
1. Do I need my driver’s license to race one of your stock cars?
No, a license is not required. In fact, our racing school is open to drivers 14 years and older. Please check with a racing consultant if you want to race, but don’t meet the normal age requirement.
2. Is the School of Racing only for racers who want to make a career out of racing?
No, the School of Racing is a great course for anyone from the novice to the seasoned veteran. The skills taught in any of our courses will help on the track as well as in every day driving. These courses do not have any age maximum, as long as you have a clean bill of health.
3. 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, they are provided to you at no charge, but please make arrangements with a racing consultant at time of registering.
4. Can I bring spectators?
Yes, you can bring your fans to watch or take photos for you.
5. 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.
6. Can I mount my own camera to the car for my course?
Yes, there are selected cameras that can be used on our car. Please check with a racing consultant for additional information.
