Skip Barber, Panoz Racing School and Road Atlanta join forces in multi-year agreement
Monday, June 11, 2007 Skip Barber Racing School, Panoz Racing School, and Road Atlanta have announced the signing of a long-term agreement that will provide Skip Barber with a central presence at one of the nation’s most venerable road courses.
Under the agreement, Skip Barber will partner with and assume operational management of the Panoz Racing School at Road Atlanta, and will become the exclusive provider of driving and racing schools at Road Atlanta.
Beginning July 1, Skip Barber will execute previously scheduled Panoz Driving School and racing programs, utilizing Panoz GTRA cars but under the Skip Barber brand. Previously scheduled 2007 Panoz Racing Series events will use Panoz vehicles and will follow existing Panoz Series competition rules and regulations. In the future, programs will use Skip Barber vehicles and a combination of Skip Barber and Panoz Racing School staff and equipment.
“We are extremely fortunate to be partnering with Road Atlanta and in particular, with the Panoz Racing School,” said George Ayres, President of Skip Barber Racing School. “This agreement enables Skip Barber to serve a new, major metropolitan market and region of the country that is growing. People here are enthusiastic about motorsports. We believe our Racing School, Driving School and Race Series customers will be thrilled with the experience that the Road Atlanta track and facilities offer.”
