Each time you arrive at the racetrack you will be driving a professionally prepared open wheel race car, which is race-ready the moment it arrives. Our professional race preparation team will spend weeks preparing your race car for each race. The car arrives race-ready, to allow maximum time to focus on track and driver set-up. The Race Cars you will be driving are Nationally competitive, and capable of winning SCCA Regional and National races.



The entire weekend you are racing at the track, you will be supported by a crew that will take care of all the needs of the race car, along with the pit and paddock area. From unloading the trailer, setting up the paddock area to complete racecar setup and preparation, our experienced crew will provide a safe and race ready racecar, for every session; Practice, Qualifying, and the Race.
