The Road to Indy Starts With Your Education Here
Our Race School Series
Essential Education for INDYCAR and F1
Josef Newgarden. Alexander Rossi. Ryan Hunter-Reay. Sergio Perez. Aside from being tremendously talented drivers, champions, and race winners they have another very important distinction in common. Before ascending to the pinnacle of professional motorsports ladder each of them competed in an American race school championship series. Despite each having opportunities to forgo a school series and jump into the lower levels of the professional series’ ladders, they, their families and their mentors knew, unequivocally, that the correct next step after karts was to race in a school series.
While our race series champion is the beneficiary of a scholarship to be able to move onto the Road to Indy with USF2000, that scholarship is an ancillary benefit to to the real prize – the education. It is a prize which all of our series competitors receive and one that is essential in successfully moving up the motorsports ladder.
Every year, our top-performing graduates move onto the professional racing ladders of INDYCAR, F1, and IMSA. Whether drivers compete in one or two seasons of our series, when they are ready to move on they are ready to move. The training you receive in our school is an unmatched, unforgettable, first-class education combining the very best racing instruction and education.
From Karts to Cars
A Winning Receipe
The transition from karts to cars is steep. Jump straight from a kart into a race car with aero and highly talented karters miss the opportunity to learn and understand the difference between mechanical grip and aerodynamic grip.
Their future ability to help communicate to the needed setup changes becomes severely impaired without these foundational concepts. Instead of an exciting and thrilling first year of professional racing it instead becomes a lost season, unfortunately learning these concepts on the professional stage. Expensive learning at $200,000 – $300,000 per season for F4 or the United States premier racing ladder – The Road to Indy.
Instead, for a quarter of the price per season those valuable and irreplaceable lessons can be learned against a group of similarly talented and aspiring drivers running equal equipment with one engineering and mechanical team working to ensure each car runs as closely as possible with no driver receiving an unfair advantage. Moreover you will be wildly more competitive as a result of trusting the process that has worked for so many champions that have come before you.
