The Tire Rack SCCA Starting Line School is a partnership between the Sports Car Club of America and Tire Rack to give automotive enthusiasts at every level a professional, all-inclusive entry into the sport of performance driving and the chance to have some fun with their cars.

The full-day school introduces key concepts applicable to performance driving and offers participants the opportunity to develop motorsports skills while working with professional performance driving instructors.

Professional instructors teach:

  •          Vehicle dynamics
  •          Traction management
  •          Vision and control
  •          Tips and techniques custom tailored to match your needs and ability level

Starting Line participants leave ready for motorsports competition if that’s where their interest takes them, but everyone gains an understanding of the capabilities of their vehicle and is given the opportunity to have a little fun with it. In addition to a full day of instruction, the Tire Rack SCCA Starting Line package includes a complete motorsports starter kit. Participants receive an SCCA membership, entries for optional future events, as well as subscriptions to SportsCar and Grassroots Motorsports magazines. The option to add a Snell- approved motorsports helmet will be coming soon.

    My apologies for the newbie question, but I'd like to sign up for tomorrow's Starting Line event in Louisville and can't seem to find where to do it on the site. Is it too late?

    Other than me and my machine, what else should I bring?

    Helmet, sunscreen, hat, appropriate clothes and we recommend a tote or tarp to protect your belongings during the day if you're not trailering your car.  There's a more comprehensive list here:
