Default Driving: How Pass by jumping over.

I have seen this done time after time by drake and others. when I try to make the person in 1st look bad I have made my self look like a fool either by taking us both out or doing a back flip.

Pass in turns or in fast sections, if u pass by air you have to be 100% about what ur doing. IMO patience pays off....

Just get behind him and wait for him to make a mistake. It will happen. No need for heroics.

Yep.

Hang on his tail, the pressure will make them (or you) screw up eventually.

I think that's a problem right there. Don't try to make someone else look bad. Focus on making yourself look good (by driving quickly, smoothly, and consistently). Keep focused on your own game, and the opportunities to pass will be presented.

Sure it would look awesome to go flying over someone in the last seconds of the race to take the win, but that is Hollywood stuff. Not how to win races in real life.

the, way i pass people is usually in the turns most of time i just follow the guy in front of me and usually they will mess up from pressure.

sometimes i pass on the straight but passing in the turns is what i like.

Ive passed a few peeps by out jumping them before, even did it a few times on Sunday!. But you gotta be 100% committed! And most of all sure you gan slot your car right infront of them so they have to slow, BUT you dont cause an accident, cos itll make you look like an idiot!

My advice just sit on his tail he will cock up eventually! pass him then! Even the pros will crumble with enough pressure!!

Like it or not, parents have the authority to decide when and where their teens may drive.

I have a mix of a bunch of what was said... you have "X" amount of time to make the pass... usually X=quite a while... many laps... each driver is different and each will have their quirks...short of a pro driver most make simple mistakes that can be taken advantage of... and a BIG thing at a local race is the stress intimidation... if you can REALLY ride a persons ass cleanly without causing an accident on either of your parts its VERY stressful to the person in front of you and they will be as much concentrated on not letting you pass as they are driving... a mistake is bound to happen... and it will give you the opportunity to pass cleanly and make yourself look good in the process... just have to keep a clear head... and concentrate on the job at hand...
