Austin, TX – In partnership with SRO America, the Skip Barber Racing School has launched a new Skip Barber Race Series (SBRS). The SBRS will run alongside SRO America series at five upcoming 2020 events: Lime Rock Park (May 8-9), VIRginia International Raceway (June 6-7), Road America (Aug. 28-30), Watkins Glen (Sept. 18-20), and Indianapolis (Oct. 1-3).
“The launch of the 2020 Skip Barber Race Series is the next chapter in the storied history of the Skip Barber Racing School,” said Skip Barber CEO, Anthony DeMonte. “The Race Series is a vital component of motorsports in North America. The Series is a unique marriage of cutting-edge race cars, Skip Barber driver development and world- class race weekends with SRO America.”
“The addition of the Skip Barber Race Series to five of our SRO America race weekends this season brings an exciting new formula car racing dimension to our events,” said SRO Motorsports America President and CEO Greg Gill. “It also reinforces our partnership with Skip Barber as our Official Racing School, graduating drivers from their racing school and taking the first step into wheel-to-wheel racing.”
Since 1976, the Skip Barber Race Series has taken great drivers and made them champions. Rossi, Newgarden, Andretti, Pigot and Hunter-Reay are all alumni from Skip Barber. Expert race coaching from Skip Barber Instructors, new Skip Barber Formula Race Cars, a true arrive-and-drive format, and the amenities of a professional race weekend will all be part of a Skip Barber Race Series event. The highly structured and competitive environment of the Skip Barber Race Series is the perfect platform for both budding racers to hone their skills and for race enthusiasts looking to fulfill their dreams.
