Getting Started

While there are several sanctioning bodies in the United States, the majority of Formula Mazda racing is done at SCCA (Sports Car Club of America) sactioned club racing events.  To participate in SCCA Formula Mazda racing, you will need to become a member of SCCA and earn at least a Regional License.  Texas Autosports and Formula Mazda recommend getting your start with SCCA licensing.

1. Attend a Driving School

You have several options when choosing a Driving School.  Each sanctioning body such as SCCA and NASA offer schools a couple of times a year.  Or you may also attend an accredited independent driving school that has been authorized by SCCA to issue SCCA Regional licenses after completing a 3-Day School successfully.  SCCA accredited schools are detailed on the SCCA Driver Schools Page. We recommend getting prior approval from SCCA before attending a driver's school to verify that its accreditation will be accepted for licensing.

2. Join a Racing Organization

There are several sanctioning bodies across the country where you can race your Formula Mazda, NASA, COMMA, PASA.  The SCCA provides the greatest number of opportunities for Formula Mazda Racing in all regions of the United States.

3. Get a Competition Racing License

To earn a Regional License, you must attend two (2) SCCA sponsored racing schools. Or, you can participate in one of the SCCA accredited professional racing schools listed above. Some of the SCCA accredited schools listed below have been authorized by SCCA to issue SCCA Regional licenses after completing a 3-Day School successfully.
All of the professional racing schools above furnish you with a car and gear. The SCCA sponsored schools do not furnish you with a car and gear. You must use your own or rent a car from a race team (such as Texas Autosports).
Once you get an SCCA Regional license, you qualify to race in all SCCA Regional races, as well as COMMA and NASA events. In most cases your SCCA competition license will be accepted in other sanctioning bodies to obtain licensing. In order to participate in an SCCA National race, you must first race a certain quota of Regional races before a National license will be issued.


4. Choose a Vehicle

We suggest the Formula Mazda!
