March 2019

The SFR Driver’s School had a new name for 2019 – Competition Licensing School , better reflective of its goals and purpose

It was held February 15-17, 2019 at Thunderhill Raceway Park. While the weather was mostly dry, save for the freaky hit-and-run hail storm Sunday afternoon, it was miserably cold and windy. Seeing all the snow on  the distant peaks added to the chill. The Thursday before school, the rain was so bad it closed portions of I-5, stranding and/or detouring arriving students, instructors and volunteer race officials and workers. Those traveling Friday were greeted by clear roads, bright sunshine, flowering orchards and electric green hills and vales.

This years class was nearly as large as last year, with 54 students divided into the traditional three groups – Closed Wheel I, for the less experienced students; Closed Wheel II for those with more experience and/or ‘refreshers’; and Open Wheel students. The students, as always, mostly came from SFR, but this year’s class also included students from Colorado, Nevada, San Diego, Texas, and Washington.
