    I did the school 3 years ago. It was great.

    Two tips that should be repeated over and over:

    1. Bring a reliable sorted car.
    2. Take it easy and learn. There are no winners or awards for most passes. Don't be the guy who wads his car in the school. There is always one.

    [QUOTE=Olitho;111386]You get a provisional "novice" race license if you graduate. Cal Club even throws in your first official race on Sunday after the Friday-Saturday school.

    So then how many races do you need to run, in what period of time, to get your "novice" status removed and how many races do you need to run to keep it current?

    I think you need to do three races clean and then you get a regular regional race license. Three or four more races as a regional racer and you can apply for a national license. After that you can apply for pro. I only did pro in 2010. It is nasty expensive and I was just out to have fun. In pro, unlike regional and national racing, you don't want to get in between a pro driver and his need for a paycheck if you are just out to have fun.

    In 2014 there is no regional and national license. Just a competition license that is valid for all races.

    Not sure what the qualification is from the novice permit though.

    ^^^I hope you are right about that. The National/Regional license dichotomy never made any sense to me. As for the number of races, I think Oli is almost right, at least before the change for 2014 that Amir told us about. It used to be that you needed to run 4 regional races on your novice permit to get a regional license. Because you get one race on Sunday of the SuperSchool weekend, you need 3 more races to get your regional competition license. The free race at the end of the school doesn't really help much, since it will take you 2 more weekends to get the other 3 races (when I took the SuperSchool in 2008, there was no race at the end of the weekend, so it took me 2 more race weekends to get the regional competition license, just like now). BTW, NASA only requires two races on your provisional license/novice permit to get a NASA competition license, and they have no distinction like SCCA re: National vs. Regional races. Emilio's NASA butthurt notwithstanding . . .

    Four races, "without incident".
