The Race Driver Training Program is organized and operated by the SCCBC's Race Drivers Committee. Membership on this committee is by invitation. The members of this committee are a group of the best racers in the club. Most have won championships in their class and others are those who have done consistently well over the years and proven themselves capable of excelling in all race conditions, and whom have demonstrated an ability to teach their craft to others.

The three day course includes 1 day for vehicle inspection and classroom instruction and 2 days of on-track instruction. Students are assigned an instructor which they may share with one or two other students. In the classroom session, the students will engage in discussions with several instructors and study the Race Driver Training Manual. This covers the basics such as seating position, shifting, racing lines and apexes, flags and general race procedures.

The on-track instruction starts with a walk of the track and a description of the corners. Next, come several exercises including threshold braking, cornering and vision segments before beginning slow speed dual instruction sessions where the instructor drives the car around the track at slow speed while pointing out the racing line and apex in each of the corners. Then it’s the student's turn to drive. By the end of the first day on track, the students have increased their driving speed considerably. The second day on the track starts with a track walk and short review, then it’s back out on the track for lapping. The speed is slowly increased with each session, until the student is comfortable driving the track at near racing speeds.

The students are observed by the instructors throughout the entire weekend. They are given feedback on their driving position, and control in the driver’s seat, awareness of, and response to, flags and other cars as well as their chosen line through the corners.

At the end of the course, those who have successfully completed the course and who intend to go racing may purchase a novice racing license from one of the race licensing bodies. Three races must be completed under observation as a novice after which time a driver may upgrade to a senior license, which allows them to compete in club championship races.

This course is mainly for people intending to go racing and for those wishing to improve on their driving skill.
