Thursday, July 22, 2010 Skip Barber Racing School today announced its 2010-2011 Winter Race Series schedules. The Southern Race Series and MAZDASPEED Challenge South include a return to the newly resurrected Palm Beach International Raceway, while the Western Race Series sees the introduction of Chuckwalla Valley Raceway in California to the schedule.

Skip Barber Southern Series / MAZDASPEED Challenge South
With two championships being contested at four different tracks over six weekends, the 2010-2011 Southern Race Series and MAZDASPEED Challenge South schedule is the most diverse schedule in years. In addition to our traditional races at Road Atlanta, Sebring International and Homestead, we are returning to West Palm Beach in March for the first time in four years, and the first time since the comprehensive upgrades to what is now Palm Beach International Raceway.
