IRGSE Acquires Bertil Roos Racing School

IRG Sports + Entertainment (IRGSE) announced the recent acquisition of Bertil Roos Racing School.

The Bertil Roos Racing School has been training students in the art of motor racing for over four decades. Graduates of the European-style, road racing “arrive and drive” school can be found at every level of racing, from the hobbyist up to the top levels of professional racing, according to IRGSE.

Bertil Roos will continue to run programs at existing locations and will add resident driving schools at Palm Beach International Raceway and at Memphis International Raceway.

In addition, IRGSE acquired the complete Formula fleet and spares from the Skip Barber Racing School. These vehicles are undergoing complete overhauls and will be permanently situated at the Palm Beach and Memphis Bertil Roos Racing School locations.

Bertil Roos Racing School will service seven track locations in 2018 with a fleet of 45 open-wheel Formula cars and 20 full-bodied cars, along with offering trackside support. Corporate headquarters will be based in West Palm Beach, Fla.

"I am excited to be part of the IRGSE family," said Dennis Macchio, President of Bertil Roos Racing Schools. "Their track assets fit perfectly into our vision for the continued expansion of Bertil Roos Racing School and the residency driving school programs we have developed.

"The resources afforded to Bertil Roos through this venture will allow us to expand both geographically and through the development of additional programs and racing weekends."
