About Starting Line

The SCCA Starting Line School, brought to by Tire Rack, is a comprehensive performance driving school. While aimed at the novice, the unique format makes it valuable to anyone interested in being better behind the wheel. The full day school will focus on vehicle dynamics and other key concepts for improved performance while tackling your favorite autocross course.

The full day school is broken up into two sessions, morning and afternoon. The morning session consists of two elements to help each student learn or practice the fundamentals of proper performance driving techniques. The afternoon session is dedicated to applying those lessons, while introducing how to quickly and effectively read an autocross course. Lunch is provided, and will be a “working” lunch where we discuss the mornings sessions, and what the afternoon holds in store.

Starting Line isn’t just a driving school, however.  It is also a comprehensive entry into the SCCA. Here’s a complete list of what comes with your Tire Rack SCCA Starting Line package:

In addition to a full day of professional performance driving instruction, the $350 Starting Line Package also includes:
