WHAT THE HALLETT RACE SCHOOL DOES
The Hallett Race School provides new and experienced drivers with race and high performance driver education that can be used to advance their racing skills and also toward licensing in various licensing organizations throughout the nation, including Hallett Motor Racing Circuit’s very own COMMA series. By offering an “All-Inclusive” package, the Hallett Race School provides students with everything they need and removes unnecessary worries about having the right equipment.
Our expert technicians spend hours preparing our fleet of Spec Racer Ford Gen 2s to ensure you spend your time on track driving and in the classroom learning instead of worrying about wear and tear on your own vehicle.
RACE SCHOOL PROGRAM
The Hallett Race School provides eager students with a race car, appropriate safety equipment that includes helmet and race suit if necessary, fuel and fluids, tires, lunch, classroom and on-track instruction, a framed certificate upon successful completion, and photography services by our expert photographer. Class sizes are limited to five (5) students to maximize track time and personalized learning.
Students of the Hallett Race School drive race-prepared Spec Racer Ford (SRF) Gen 2 mid-engine race cars. Each SRF features a robust 1.9L four-cylinder engine mated to five-speed manual transmission (Driving Student must be able to operate manual shift vehicles.) in a lightweight chassis that has evolved over many years of competition and training.
Hallett Race School instructors have gone through rigorous training and have extensive experience. Instructors have won SCCA regional and national races and championships. Each has instructed at Hallett previously and at other tracks sanctioned by the SCCA, NASA, Porsche Club of America, and COMMA. Because race school classes are limited to three to five students, instructors are able to spend valuable one-on-one time discussing the details of driver development.
Attendance at the Hallett Race School costs $1,600 with 50% deposit @ registration, remainder due day before event.
