MRC Racing School, Rock Falls, IL
This racing school is perfect for anyone who's interested in getting into powerboat racing! Attending a Racing School gives you the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a real race boat, under real testing and real racing conditions.
The weekend begins with an on-shore classroom instructional period where you learn racing safety, the fundamentals of a racing rig, the starting clock, flags, and signals. Afterward, you put what you learned into practice on the water. The Marine Racing Club provides all the necessary equipment (boat, engine, propeller, helmet, safety gear, gas, oil, a weekend membership in the American Power Boat Association (APBA), and a one-year membership in Marine Racing Club).
Next, you take the race rig out for some test laps on a closed course. Finally, you progress to your Novice Race where you compete against your classmates and various other seasoned boat racers in a real race!
The class will be held Friday, June 28, 2019 with novice races June 29 and 30.
