AUTO CLUB SPEEDWAY ADDS FORMULA ONE STYLE WORLD CLASS RACING SCHOOL TO ITS ROSTER
SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY, Calif. (Oct. 5, 2011) – Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to get behind the wheel of a Formula One style racecar– a Tatuus Formula Renault 1600 to be exact? Well now is your chance. For the first time, Allen Berg Racing Schools (ABRS) will debut its world class Formula Race School on the road course at Auto Club Speedway Nov. 14-15. Additional dates at Auto Club Speedway for 2011 include Dec. 5.
With over 32 years of racing experience, former F1 Grand Prix driver Allen Berg offers an authentic racing environment to every participant. ABRS is the only school in North America that has a former Formula One driver as an active Chief Instructor. Unique in the racing school industry, ABRS is the only racing school utilizing racecars currently used in international competition – these racecars are not your usual run of the mill fleet style school cars. Not only will participants feel like real racecar drivers, they will be driving like one!
In addition to using authentic racecars, ABRS is the only racing school to employ Formula One style MoTeC data acquisition technology on all of its racecars – the same data systems as used by teams in the IndyCar Series ALMS and the legendary Indianapolis 500. During one-, two- and three-day Formula car programs, all data is recorded and used to monitor and critique driver’s performance, providing a comparison to experienced racers under the same conditions. Complimentary on board video camera footage through Contour digital cameras will be provided to students. All programs include driving equipment, classroom instruction and of course laps in a racecar.
Allen Berg Racing Schools have been operating in various locations across Western Canada and Northern California since 2006 and is the premier open-wheel road racing school available in Southern California.
