California enthusiast drivers now have the chance to fulfill their need for speed and maybe also see if they have “the right stuff” to compete in motorsports.
“Northern California has long been a hot spot for motorsports, and I’m looking forward to bringing our open wheel Formula racecars to Thunderhill to help all Northern Californians to check the “drive a racecar” item off their bucket lists!” states Berg. “Individuals that are looking for the ultimate life experience or possibly that next step to getting their race driving license and even a career in the sport will find that this program is everything they’ve been looking for.
We utilize MoTeC data systems and on board cameras in all our cars to provide feedback to our students, as well as a copy of their data, video and MoTeC software at the end of the program. We look forward to be-coming a regular fixture at Thunderhill Raceway, the 3.0 Mile roadcourse is an ideal facility for learning to race as well as competing at a very high level.”
