In the last couple of years, thanks to Ray Arlauskas, the Chief Regional Race Instructor, we’ve increased the number of licences that we are granting based on “observation”, instead of attending a school. The schools are still very important and may provide someone new to the sport with a quick way to accumulate on-track experience.
With that in mind, here are some links to CASC-OR accredited race schools – places new drivers can go in order to obtain the necessary on-track experience to qualify for a regional road racing licence:

That brings us back to CASC-OR and our own race school. In a break with the past, for 2017, the CASC-OR Race School will be held on the Mosport Grand Prix Track at CTMP on May 12 as part of the test day before the Spring Trophy Races May 13-14. To register for the school you must be pre-approved by Ray Arlauskas. The course is designed to bring experienced drivers up to speed on racing safely. It consists of a couple of hours of classroom instruction (including a written test), followed by on track sessions to expose the students to wheel to wheel action on a race course. The course is to be taken in your race car so full driver safety equipment is required and your car must pass tech to be eligible (scrutineering will be available for the school). Previous driving experience is a must as this course is not designed to teach you how to drive the car, rather how to race the car safely. Car control is assumed. To apply for this course send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with your on-track driving resume. Ray will get back to you to discuss the requirements more fully.
