The Racing School

The Racing School has facilitated more than 14 years of thrilling moments just like this (and documented many of them on video). The staff here consists of current and former professional racers, who teach novices how to handle traditional stock cars, race trucks, road course cars and other high-octane vehicles. Once instructors cover acceleration, braking and the other essentials, training culminates with a driving experience at professional-level tracks, including New London Waterford Speedbowl, Devils Bowl Speedway, and Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park. Here, the experts give newbies the freedom to drive like pros, encouraging passing and letting drivers set their own pace.
