T1 Club members can now bring their own cars to the SCCA (Sports Car Club of America) Racing License Courses at the Simraceway Performance Driving Center. Learn more about your car’s behavior and limit before you get it into races.
This new benefit is a convenience to members who are curious about starting a path towards racing and want to explore that possibility in a vehicle environment they’re knowledgeable about and comfortable in i.e. their own car.
After the completion of the SCCA Racing License course, graduating members can participate in numerous racing events from coast to coast. The SCCA promotes a diverse range of championships across the country and a series to suit more or less every budget. There are time trials and sprints that have classes for stock street cars through to fire-breathing prototypes to full grids and serious race weekends.
Membership of the SCCA is part of the package and comes with its own benefits, and the racing license is just the first step towards a competitive motorsport future.
What’s included in the SCCA racing license course?
The SCCA course is a 2 day program which includes classroom tuition on track rules, safety and the basics of race craft. Drivers will spend time on track and paddock undertaking a series of tests. Like all our racing programs it includes a lot of time on-track, under the watchful eye of Simraceway’s instructors, who will help them reach the required standards.
The SCCA certification doesn’t turn anyone into a winner. It’s designed specifically to make sure new drivers understand the rules and regulations of racing and how not to be a danger to other drivers (or themselves) when they head out on the track in a competitive context.
Why get a license at Simraceway?
Whilst our Track days and sportscar experiences have helped turn Simraceway Performance Driving Center into the number one attraction in the region, according to TripAdvisor. Our racing school programs are the advanced option and take driver training and members time on track to the next level.
Whilst graduating Racing School 1 and Racing School 2 will also qualify you for you for an SCCA license, as well as approval to race in our own series – simraceway series . This licensing specific program focuses purely on the needs and requirements of licensing and is a time and cost efficient way to acquire your racing license.
T1 Motorsport Club members can opt to attend in groups (arranged by the club) or 1-on-1 with North America’s finest team of racing instructors. Most of whom are active racers themselves. They come with real-world experience of racing cars at the limit and go beyond the basics to help T1 Racing Club members get the absolute most from their car and their fledgeling career.
From Track Day Hero to Racing Legend in 2 days
Simraceway adds a coaching element to the SCCA course that will turn your time on track into education, rather than just an exam. T1 Club members can hone their skills and maximize their car’s performance during the certification process.
Keeping Simraceway’s stable of track cars, such as the KTM X-Bow Comp R , locked away in the paddock saves on costs too. So, while a 2-day course with all machinery provided costs $6,495, T1 Members can bring their own cars for the full course and pay just $2,995.
