The Russell Racing School is based at Infineon Raceway (formerly Sears Point), just north of San Francisco, California. Russell offers a number of programs, some oriented towards Race Driving, and some oriented towards Street and Highway driving.
The Russell "Techniques of Racing Course" uses "Formula Russell" cars, winged flat bottomed cars resembling SCCA Formula Continentals. Successful competion of this Russell course qualifies a driver for a provisional USAC license or an SCCA Regional license.
Russell primarily places the instructors in other cars on course, and on corners, observing students. There is extensive classroom instruction.
