What is the difference between a Driving School and a Racing School
Skip Barber Driving Schools programs are designed to focus on the foundations of vehicle dynamics and behavior that will be directly translated to safe, fun motoring for the street. These programs utilize vehicles that you can drive on the skid pad and autocross today and purchase from the showroom tomorrow.
Skip Barber Racing Schools are programs based on race cars. The racing programs are designed to teach the fundamentals and advanced techniques to be successful on the track and in a racing environment. These programs are great for the motorsports enthusiast, or the racer looking to gain their SCCA Full Competition License.
