Bertil Roos Racing School to Honor Skip Barber Racing School Deposits

The Bertil Roos Racing School will accept some of the deposits lost when the Skip Barber Racing School folded.

Here’s the entire release from the Bertil Roos Racing School:

Blakeslee, PA. The Bertil Roos Racing School, in conjunction with senior executives of the former Skip Barber Racing School, has announced today that it has initiated a new program to help the many of customers that have deposits with the Skip Barber Racing School.

Beginning immediately, any customer who has an outstanding deposit with the Skip Barber Racing School will be able to apply a portion of their lost deposit towards any Bertil Roos Racing School program. The Bertil Roos Racing School will accept Skip Barber Racing School deposits for up to 25% of the value of the Bertil Roos Racing School programs; and this can be repeated until the customer’s entire deposit has been used up.

“This program makes good business sense for us,” explained the President of the Bertil Roos Racing School, Dennis Macchio, “but maybe of equal importance is the integrity and credibility of the racing school industry. The Skip Barber Racing School ran into financial problems, and a lot of people got caught with nowhere to go. Banks and businesses assume the risk, as part of their business. But what happened to these customers was unfortunate. Caveat emptor only goes so far.” The Bertil Roos Racing School feels that this is an opportunity to assist thousands of depositors; without putting itself in financial peril as well. “We want what we always want,” explains Macchio, “an opportunity to make people fall in love with our sport and, concomitantly have the opportunity to ‘do it right.”

The Bertil Roos Racing School would also like to point out that it never cancels programs, has never overbooked an event, or been short on equipment.

Customers will be booked on a “first-come, first-serve” basis. Dates at certain tracks are expected to fill almost immediately. Schedules are now being expanded to accommodate additional students. Bertil Roos welcomes Skip Barber Racing School customers to its school.
