The Quickest Way To Get A Wheel-Wheel Racing License

By Jeff Sexton

WRR partners Level Up Racing Schools and ATL Speedwerks will be holding a road racing school in December at Atlanta Motorsports Park. This 2-day school is about the quickest way to get your SCCA wheel-wheel racing license. The school is also great for more experienced drivers because of the focus on practicing critical techniques for improving your times.

If novice students successfully complete the 2-Day school, upon request, Level Up will issue an SCCA certificate of compliance for no charge. Students can then apply to SCCA for a Novice license, for which there is a fee from SCCA. After that, students have to complete three race weekends and have their license signed off by the appropriate SCCA official while still at the track. All of that needs to be done within 24 months. Then you have met all the requirements and can apply for their full competition license from SCCA.  

It may sound bureaucratic, but really the SCCA officials are there to help you succeed. And once you have your provisional license, you're just doing normal race weekends which is why you are getting a license in the first place. So, once you complete the school, you're off to the races. Getting your full comp license from SCCA makes it pretty easy to get licensed with NASA, or PCA or BMWCCA or SVRA as well.

The school uses the WRR/Speedwerks fleet of Spec MX-5 race cars. These cars are ideal for schools, with excellent handling, ABS and power steering.

Here is a summary of what the school covers:

  • The lost art of downshifting an H-pattern gearbox
  • The racing line
  • Flagging and communications protocols
  • Trail braking
  • Passing techniques
  • Race starts (taking the green)
  • Racing in the rain
  • Data logging & analysis
