F1 fans itching to get a taste of open-wheel racing Stateside have a reason to celebrate. For years, former F1 driver Allen Berg and his team of instructors have introduced attendees of the Allen Berg Racing Schools (ABRS) program open wheel racecraft at the famed WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca since 2016. I checked the Corkscrew off my bucket list thanks to Berg and his coaching team back in 2019, and it was one of the most epic driving experiences of my life.

ABRS is expanding east to Virginia International Raceway (VIR) and Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta. These two storied tracks are icons in American racing – playing host to series including sportscar series like the IMSA SportsCar Championship, GT World Challenge America, and the Trans-Am series.

“We are really excited to bring our highly acclaimed programs to the east coast,” said Berg, CEO of ABRS. “Our attendees will enjoy plenty of seat time and the same high level of instruction that has guided our clients through the famous Corkscrew at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca for the past several years.”

This is ABRS’ first foray east of the Mississippi. Students will get to pilot the school’s carbon fiber-bodies Tatuus race cars, the same ones the school used at Laguna Sega. Students can choose one-day, two-day, and two-day advanced classes at VIR and one-day or two-day classes at Road Atlanta.
