if you can make the races down in Moroso and Homestead then do CCS since JGP is right down the street from you. Not sure about WERA and their venues.

Whichever you want. See what's local and run it.

I don't think WERA recognizes the CCS license, but I think CCS recognizes WERA. So getting just the WERA you won't have to pay for a CCS.

BTW you still have to paythe $100+ for the CCS license what happens is that they recognize the WERA license so you don't have to take a race school to get your CCS license, everybody PAYS!!!!!!!

Wow that was a great write up.
I am doing WERA next year. I am located outside of Philadelphia so it puts me in the middle of most WERA events for driving. Being in Florida for you, I have no idea about track locations. Just check out the sites and see what is offered. Good luck and maybe we will be charging a hole shot next to each other next year.

I went from CCS to WERA this year, WERA seems more organized, but did cost more money overall. Guess it would depend on what tracks are the closest to where you live.

CCS in Florida is a completely different animal than everywhere else. The events are run by Henry DeGouw and they are top notch. He's an ex-racer and he cares about racers... CCS, well... not always :( . You'll enjoy racing CCS FL, and the competition is as good as anywhere in the US. You can contact Hery directly for more information (go to the JenningsGP.com board and search, you'll find his phone #) about the FL region and CCS directly about the license in general.

www.ccsracing.com

then go to forms and then new rider package

good luck!
