Enduro of Savannah

                If you haven’t participated in this event in the past, you don’t know what you’ve been missing.

History
                Eight years ago, we came up with the idea of doing a season ending, no points, team endure. The idea was simple, extend the racing season by having a fun, low cost event, where season long competitors could form a team and compete against other similar teams from inside and outside the series. The goal was to have some fun racing, and to provide a less intense atmosphere where competitors could socialize and hang with other like minded people. To spice things up, we decided to add an instructor team, which would help amplify the “trash talk” and fun.
                As part of the deal, the company sponsors a dinner and chooses venues that are family friendly. I’ve always believed that this is a family sport, but freezing on the East Track at Pocono is sometimes “too much” for non-participants, especially when drivers are so engrossed in the points chase.
                So an end of year, warm weather event, held at a venue with lots to do in the surrounding area, has become a tradition.

2014 Enduro
                This year, for the fourth time, the event will be held in Savannah, GA. Our dinner will be held on Saturday night while taking a cruise down the Savannah River. We are hoping that more family members come this year. Extending your trip by just a few days will allow you to take advantage of the incredible amount of tourism opportunities in Savannah, Hilton Head, Tybee Island, Coastal Islands, etc. History buffs, golfers, antiquers, shoppers and partiers will love it.

The Race
                Two licensed drivers form a team in advance. Each driver gets four practice sessions on Saturday, and practice and qualifying sessions on Sunday. The race is held Sunday afternoon, with each team member doing a 45 minute segment. Team strategy always plays a role. Who starts? Who finishes? Pit boards are used as a way of team communication (a little “old school” flavor). Safe guards are built into the system to ensure that crashes or mechanical issues do not have major impact on results. Essentially, driver 2 will not inherit an “already out of it” car.
                The segments are separated by a half-hour break for fueling and reorganizing. Drivers’ time differentials are carried over to the second session. Trophies are presented to the top three finishing cars and cool little mementos are presented to each participant. The drivers names from the winning car are included on the big “cup trophy” which is always on display at Roos.
                The idea is to have a fun time while still getting one last “competitive jolt” in before we hit the off-season.

Teams
                While we prefer to have drivers make their own teams, we always help out if a “match maker” is needed. New drivers… don’t feel left out, there will be someone out there who will make a great teammate. Seasoned drivers… GET OFF YOUR BUTTS! Try and hook up with one of the guys you’ve been dicing with all year. This is a great way to put the struggles of the season aside. And then there is always the fun of beating the “load mouth know it alls”… the instructor team.

Details
                We need to get teams together soon. Equipment and personnel requirements have to be sorted and dinner arrangements finalized. Some teams are already in place, but we want to get everybody on board (no pun intended) as soon as we can.
                We need to know who may be attending the dinner with you also…spouses, significant others, and kids are welcome. Hotels are cheap, weather will be better than in 80% of the country, so let’s do this!

"Do it Right"

A lot of people have been asking us why we do things the way we do at the school and "isn't there a short cut?"

Well, Dennis would like to address this:

“Do It Right”
By Dennis Macchio

                Being involved in the sport of motor racing for more than 35 years, gives one a perspective on the sport that just can’t be duplicated in a short period of time. Having been involved in so many activities within the sport, driver, track owner, manager and designer, team owner, instructor, driving coach and owner of a well known racing school, have provided me with a lifetime of experience and understanding of the sport.

During the last 3 ½ decades, I have seen so much change: driver safety has improved immensely. Driving gear, car design, track layouts and safety barriers have contributed greatly to reducing fatalities and injuries. Suspensions, tires, and gearbox technologies have made cars faster, easier to drive and as a result ... Read More

Bertil Roos Racing School Mission Statement

“More training is required to get a license to cut hair than to drive a racecar…”

 

-Bertil Roos, 1980

roos7444936.jpg

 

 

In a cultural era where everything has been watered down, and shortcuts seem to abound, some things just should NOT be compromised.

At the Bertil Roos Racing School, it’s not just about taking money and issuing licenses. We train drivers to compete… effectively, safely, and successfully; and have been for 35 years.

It has always been our stance that quality will never be sacrificed no matter what the flavor of the month is. If you are serious about motor racing, come visit us… If you’re looking for a shortcut… well, there are plenty of “Johnny Come Lately’s.”

 
Look For Us On ...
