Three Rivers Outboard Racing Association has released the 2020 Driver School schedule, and will be holding schools at events in Franklin, PA and Kittanning, PA this year.
Students will receive detailed land instruction from veteran drivers about how to race a hydroplane or runabout, and get testing time on the water. Weather and time-permitting, students may also get additional water time in a 'race-the-instructor' event at the end of the school day.
The 2020 Junior, Stock and Modified Racing Calendar is starting to take shape with an incredible amount of racing available to racers and spectators in and around the midwest! See the calendar and be sure to let us know of any additions or corrections.
