Hot on the heels of the 14th Annual Skip Barber Karting Scholarship Shootout, Skip Barber Racing School is announcing the schedule for the 14th year of the Skip Barber National Race Series.
The 2011 14-race season of the BFGoodrich/Skip Barber National Presented by Mazda will kick off at Sebring International Raceway, joining the festivities of the legendary 12 Hours of Sebring. From there, the young racers will compete on some of America's best road courses: Virginia International Raceway, Lime Rock Park, Road America, Road Atlanta, and Mid Ohio Sports Car Course.
Virginia International Raceway, Road America, Road Atlanta and the finale weekend at Lime Rock Park will be in conjunction with the Skip Barber Regional Race Series. This not only guarantees the young drivers more race time, but allows the option for them to pick up additional seat time through lapping days and similar activities. Drivers will also be able to receive even more coaching and feedback, as more Skip Barber Racing School instructors will be at this event.
Rounds 1 & 2: March 16-18 at the 12hrs of Sebring with ALMS
Rounds 3 & 4: April 29-May 1 at Virginia International Raceway with Skip Barber Regional Series
