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.

    John Hunter, will you be instructing for this Starting Line school? Because if that's the case, I may just have to cancel my registration... 

    John H Nelson

    I have just entered before I read the comment that this will not be conducted on track.  How do I cancel my entry.

    John Hunter

    John, you can email me directly at While it isn’t on the track, we are still positive that the knowledge you will receive from the instructors (all very accomplished drivers on track) will be beneficial to you during the event itself. 

    Kathy Morey

    Will this starting line be more focused on TT type events or in the autocross format?

    John Hunter

    The format will be the same, as we will not be on track for the school. However, the driving techniques and disciplines taught are the foundation to excelling in any performance driving situation. Grip/weight management, driver inputs, and eye placement are all things that we focus on, and will help you get the most out of your track day/TT.
