Formula 1. Sepang. April 2010If you long for the adventure found behind the wheel of a Mazda MX5 Cup Sports Car or want to learn the fundamentals for successful track racing, then a trip to Skip Barber’s Mazda racing school is right up your alley! A fully integrated system of racing schools begun by racing champion Skip Barber in 1975, Skip Barber Racing is now one of the largest racing schools in the world, with alumni taking home a win in every major U.S. auto racing championship to date.

The Racing Programs

Mazda and the Skip Barber Racing School began a partnership in 2007 that has joined the Mazdaspeed Motorsports Mazda MX-5 with the professional expertise of race-proven instructors to train up more motorsport champions and overall winners than any other organization of its kind. Now visiting over 30 racetracks across the U.S. and Canada, the racing school offers a variety of options for those ready to hit the track:

  • 1 Day Racing School: Drivers experience a full day of racing activities, including 60 minutes of on-track time in the driver’s seat of an open-wheel Formula Skip Barber and the Mazda Miata based MX-5 Cup cars.
  • 2 Day Advanced Racing School: Prepares drivers for the racing environment, providing training in areas such as passing exercises, race starts and restarts, leading and follow passing, and course lapping.
  • 3 Day Racing School: Offers drivers the opportunity to obtain a club, professional, or international racing license through both classroom sessions and driving experiences in the Formula Skip Barber or MX-5 Cup car. Drivers are educated through hands on experiences in areas such as braking, cornering, race style downshifting, racing starts, passing, and drafting.
  • Advanced Car Control: Drivers are instructed in areas such as rotating the car, balancing a vehicle while drifting, and driving a variety of vehicles. The overall goal is to unlock driver potential in controlled environment.
