The only issue with racing a belt drive car is if you race on a dirty track. Since the pulleys and belts are open to debris/gunk off the track, then you have to make checking/cleaning the belts/pulley part of your race day routine. Not all shaft drive cars have completely sealed drive lines and/or gearboxes, so you can also have similar issues with them as well.

Even some of the "best" cars out there have weak points. It is a good idea to research any car you are thinking of buying so that you are prepared for individual quirks. But it is never fair to make blanket statements like "belts break" or "shaft drives have torque steer" without mentioning how/where a vehicle is being used.
