I googled "best road race school" and Penguin Roadrace school came up. I went and rented a Ducati and rode it for the weekend in Advanced course. Crashed a few times too! Then a few months later after my bike was race prepped, I drove back to Loudon NH for Penguin RRS and got my race license. I started racing immediately. I had no idea about track days and all that. With my two track weekends of experience I started racing in 2010 at Summit Point. In a hurricane. I had no idea wtf I was doing. All I cared about was not finishing last.

6 years later I am on a real race bike with a good built motor and race suspension. I've made a lot of friends and have learned a lot. Now I am coaching beginner riders and trying to contribute to the cause in MARRC. I love all the work and BS involved. It's something productive to do with my time. I have a lot of passion for the sport.

My recent wreck in DC on my dirtbike has reminded me that I ride like an asshole and I do not belong on the street.. 150mph on the track is safer than 50mph on the street. At least for me...
Wow that's quite a journey you went through. Rode through a hurricane?? LOL that's nuts!

I've assumed you've done many regular track days since. So how does the track day instruction compare to that at the racing school? I've only done two track days but have felt one-on-one instruction is the best way to develop skills quickly. There are too many new riders for the instructors to hone in on one person. Just my perception, I'm sure your experience may differ.

you can get same one on one with a TD org as a RRS. Some TD orgs are better equipped than others for providing coaching.. RRS is focused on getting people ready to race. If you just wanna learn to go fast, a RRS is not necessary.

I recommend you come out to the MARRC track days at summit. You can pair up with a coach and make noticeable improvements. Really it's all about getting comfortable.

MARRC TD are always day before a CCS race. So if you want, you can get more involved and volunteer. MARRC has training to get you working as a flagger on the corners, etc. Best seat in the house!

Sounds good! I'll be there helping with tech inspection in the early AM. I'll see you then or find me at the rider's meeting. I'll make sure to go out in your group.
