SCCA Drivers School 2010

February 27th, 2010
1:31 am

The Washington DC region’s SCCA 2010 drivers school is quickly approaching. This year the spring school is a double event allowing you to obtain your race license in a single weekend (March 19th).

Do not under-estimate how busy you will be throughout the weekend! We can offer you full crew support along with lunch and drinks, all you need is your own car and gas. We can also put you in one of our rental Miatas so you have even less to worry about.

You may think about crewing for yourself, but it is not worth the risk… Missing just a single track session might cause you to fail your license as there is a miniminal amount of track time that is required. This year’s double event reduces the extra track time even further allowing for a tiny margin of error.

You have enough to worry about during your school, let us take care of your car and make sure you get all of your track time. Call us at (304) 728-6794 or send us an email to get your race career started!

After a dominating season, RP Performance and partners Performance Auto Works have locked up 4 championships in the Mid-Atlantic Road Racing Series for 2009. We conquered in SM, SSM, ITA and SRX7, bringing RP’s total up to 26 championships in 15 years of competition.

The Zalner brothers, Ken and Brian, finished in 1st and 2nd place respectively in SM giving Ken his 9th championship in 10 years. Scott Brunk claimed the championship in SSM and captured a new track record at Summit Point Raceway this weekend at the season finale with a blistering time of 1:28.052.

Phenom sophomore season driver Brian Price won the ITA championship in his SM Miata and capped off his season with a pair of wins on the weekend. As if the ITA championship was not enough, Brian also managed to bring it home in 4th place in the SM standings as well.

SRX-7 had a hotly contested battle between RP drivers “F1″ Al Gervais and Dave Ade. In the end, it was Dave Ade emerging victoriously as SRX-7’s newest champion. Al brought it home in 2nd place and rookie sensation Kevin Hutchens rounded out the top 3 for a total RP Performance podium sweep in the highly competitive SRX-7 class.

RP Performance would like to send out a special thank you to all of its drivers and fans for the continued support that our race team has received and continues to receive on an ongoing basis throughout the years.

Thank You!!!
