In 1989, Pro Drive acquired state-of-the-art SkidCar technology to advance drivers knowledge and skill of car control and vehicle dynamics. Throughout the years, the SkidCars have remained the centerpiece of all of Pro Drive's programs. One drive in a SkidCar and drivers of every level of experience understand the benefits this amazing vehicle has to offer. Pro Drive conducted various high performance and competition driving schools for many years.
In 1997, current Pro Drive President, Todd Harris, purchased the company from founder Dane Pitarresi and began offering racing schools conducted in purpose built racecars. Todd developed various racing programs designed for the aspiring race driver, as well as, the motorsports enthusiast who simply wanted to experience the thrill of driving a real race car. Having enjoyed great success in racing the Spec Racer Ford himself, Todd felt it was the perfect race car for his school. The Spec Racer Ford is not a car built only for student training purposes, but instead is the exact same race car used in Sports Car Club of America's most competitive class.
