A1 Driving School: A Formula for a Formula, Part 2
A1 driving schools racing school was founded in 2009 by James Coughlin.
It’s a brand that’s been in the spotlight since it launched in 2018, with a racing-themed curriculum and training center, and an advanced driving school called A1.
The A1 racing school was founded by James and his father, Robert Coughlan, in 2009.
“A1 racing was an idea that started to pop up in my mind as a way of bringing a more aggressive approach to the sport, and I really wanted to do something with the kids of the Pittsburgh area,” James Cafferty told IGN in 2017.
“The idea for A1 was born.
We were able to bring together the best of racing and technology to deliver that to a very young age.”
James and Robert Cafferting founded the company A1 Racing Technology in 2009 in order to bring the sport to an even younger age.
A1 Racing technology has since grown to become a top-tier school in the United States.
The A1 school has been on the circuit for the last two seasons in 2017, and has won the championship three times, most recently in 2018.
Its focus on racing has seen A1s success on the track, but it has also had a positive impact on the kids and families it has served.
Robert Caffertridge said, “We have seen an incredible impact on kids who are at the intersection of both racing and driving.
Our school has helped them grow into leaders of their own.
The kids have been amazing ambassadors for the school, and we have seen a lot of growth in their social skills.”
A1’s racing curriculum has helped make it a very popular brand, and the school is now expanding its curriculum to include advanced driving.
“A1 Driving Technology is now offering a Formula One driving school to its students and parents.
A Formula One school is designed for advanced drivers, who have a clear understanding of how Formula One works and what the sport entails,” a press release stated.
It seems A1’s success has been matched by the parents of its drivers.
A1 drivers and family members are very involved in the school’s activities, and it is no surprise that the team is now a well-known and well-respected name in the racing community.
The A4 racing school opened its doors in 2019, and is currently in the process of expanding to its second year of operation.
