The staff at the Penguin Racing School takes a lot of pride in helping each of students personally. They come from all different riding and racing backgrounds, but most of them are either current or former championship-winning racers. We have taken the time to introduce you to a few of our key instructors. During the course of a Penguin Racing School day we have as many as 25 instructors to work with our students. These instructors are selected from an extremely talented pool of CCS riders based upon their riding ability, experience and most importantly their willingness to spend time with our students. We sincerely hope you enjoy your experience at the Penguin Racing School, and welcome any feedback you have after your time with us.
