34

The sport of car racing has been known as a man’s sport since it began in 1920’s, but lately women also take part in this sport. Car racing is a sport where you use sports car that have two seats and enclosed wheels. A car racing driver can have their car customized depending on their liking. From the paint, wheels or its speed, race cars can be modified by race car drivers to achieve the ideal look on their race car. You can have its windows tinted too by professional tint shops. I am no race car driver, but I love cars and I prefer my windows to be tinted. Living in North Carolina, I had my car’s windows tinted by Tintshop NC. This shop offers the best films at the lowest prices, and you will surely get the friendliest service. If you happen to be anywhere in North Carolina, this shop is worth the visit.

Car racing is not as simple as driving a car on a highway. There are things you need to consider before switching on the ignition. The car’s power to stop, suspension, grip, engine’s torque and the steering of the car are the most important factors you need to consider when driving a race car. The car’s grip is very important as turning the car fast will make the car lose its grip and will result in a severe loss of control. Taking turns fast is part of car racing, and you don’t want the car to lose control while you are in a race. Even if you are simply driving, you’ll never want to lose control of the car.

driftThe car’s suspension is another important thing you need to be familiar with your car. Remember, if the car’s suspension is tight, it will make your car more predictable, if the car’s suspension is loose, the tire is kept better on the ground. Knowing how swift and sharp your car responds to turning the wheel is very important. Keep in mind that if you oversteer, your car will either slide or hit the inside of the corner. If you understeer, the car will turn too little. Consider getting to know how much power your car brakes have. Car Brakes play a very vital role in serious racing. You need to have a good idea of how powerful your car’s engine is. Car racing is about speed and technique. If you can accelerate fast with the car, then you are good to go.

In car racing, along with your trusted pit crew, your car is going to be your best bud. It’s important to get to know the car you are using when you are in a race, you will drive the car based on instinct and the more you know your car, the better your performance will be. Some of the cars used in racing are Rally cars, , Formula 1, Hot Rods and Stock Cars. You have to pick the one you are most familiar in using.

If it’s your first time to race, it’s always the best idea and safest to take racing classes before hitting the tracks. If you own a race car (lucky you since race cars cost more than $100,000) and have experience in racing, a class or two is enough to get you started. Race tracks are made for car racing, so there’s no need to race on highways and freeways. Racing outside the tracks is illegal and can get you in serious trouble. Whether you are into racing or just simple driving, the most important thing you need to consider is your safety and the safety of others.
