Many different types of students enroll in our 3 and 4-Day GT Road Racing program. Beginner drivers to seasoned racers agree that this course – with our student ratio to instructor averaging 3 to 1 – proved to be one of the most valuable experiences of their lifetime. The class is demanding, the challenges real, and the concentration it takes to complete this course will be rewarding for every student. It can also put you on the fast track to earn your SCCA License, which will be determined by your Radford instructor.
Although beginners may enroll, you must be proficient with a manual transmission. Over 80% of the GT Road Racing course is spent on the skills pad and 1.6-mile track, while the remaining 20% is in-classroom. Since our student ratio to instructor averages 3 to 1, you are guaranteed a personalized instruction experience second to none.
All of this information will be put in practice on the track where an instructor will lead you, showing cornering techniques, early and late apex points (the racing line), and the quickest way around the track. They will ride with you and personally coach you through each turn. On your own, you will have the opportunity to go as fast as your new abilities will take you. There is no speed limit in road racing!
Day Three will put your racing knowledge to test. Real use of SCCA rules, racing etiquette, and racing flags are put into play. You will experience the adrenaline rush of being out on a track at speed while discovering a newfound respect for everyone who has competed in the motorsports arena.
The last day of the GT Road Racing course will hone your skills further including introductions to new track configurations and techniques of learning a new track. Students receive increased track time and can practice the fundamentals learned in the previous 3 days with the added element of racing etiquette and rules.
