The Deal

  • $199 for an introductory stock-car-racing class (a $499 value)

During the class, instructors spend 45 minutes teaching students how to race at East Bay Raceway Park, Three Palms SpeedwayOrlando Speedworld Oval Track, Volusia Speedway Park, or Desoto Super Speedway. Novice speedsters then get a chance to test their skills over the course of 10 laps. While students drive professionally maintained cars, instructors and crew members stand by and communicate via racing radios as in-car cameras record the experience.

Competition101 Racing School

Using the experiences gained during years as a professional racecar driver and builder, Competition101 Racing School founder Stuart Lycett trains the next generation of podium finishers during one-on-one racing lessons. Whether behind the wheel of stock cars, Trans Am T2 sports cars, sprint cars, or open-wheel cars, pupils soak in on-track experience on dirt tracks, short ovals, speedways, or road circuits while radios and on-board video cameras record every turn for scrutiny during future feedback sessions.

In addition to their introductory class, instructors also offer one-, two-, and three-day school programs. After the three-day program, studious speedsters may complete their training by competing in a sanctioned race event in front of paying spectators and a real checkered flag. Stuart and his crew also welcome interns willing to work for six months in exchange for a free three-day racing school program.
