  • i know the this is usually said in the beginning of the race,but for those newbie who doesnt know,what are the DO's and DONT during the race.
  • let the fast guys pass!!!
  • Dont lean over the railing, if you can help it dont leave the drivers stand even if your out of the race, try not to swear most people bring their kids to the track and some of them even race, let the faster guys through especially if you are lap traffic,
  • Do:
    marshal after every race,
    drive your best,
    have FUN!
    get out of faster drivers way (if you know they will pass you)
    drive conservitively
    be a good sport
    Don't:
    get upset if you are taken out
    let the fast guys get to you by "telling you off" if you accidently hit them
    fart on the drivers stand
    take every race like its the ifmar worlds championships.
    stress racing


    I know i missed a bunch, but this is all i listed from the top of my head.
  • Drive your lines, when faster guys are behind you do not make sudden moves or do not stop but take the next corner with a wide line so you give the guys room where they want it.

    When you drop dead on a fast piece of the circuit give a yell where you are stopped to warn all other drivers. If you notice your engine has stopped and the car rolls, try to rol it at to safe place or just at the side of the track.

    If you are using a baseball cap, do not wear it or turn it to the back.

    If your car has no girp/balance just stop and try to better it. When you go on with driving you will not irritate yourself but also the others.

    Use the frequency bord

    Check alway your frequency if it is free

    Use colorfull bodies, a black body is asking for accidents.
  • don't run into other people!!

    Apparently some one else has experience this! I thought it was just me, but I guess not.

    This has to be probably the most important thing said here. Everything else is secondary. Drive your consistent line, the faster driver will make the pass cleanly if you are predictable. That being said, that driver may have to go slightly off line to pass you and may be slightly slower going into the next corner so you should try to avoid railing into the side of his car at full throttle after the apex.

    Being quick to marshal is important, we all get a 3-4 minute warmup but more often than not most guys won't show up to marshal until the last 30 seconds if that so you alway see someone in a pipe for 2 minutes.

    About the fast guys telling you off if you hit them, that is completely unprofessional and it was their fault for letting you hit them in most cases. The faster drivers are faster for a reason, that reason is control. It is common if you know that you took someone out to stop and talk to them briefly after the race. For instance I know I had a better line coming on to the straight than someone at nationals last year and I had a much higher speed than he was carrying through a slight corner but his line was tight and I tried to thread 200mm of car through 150mm of space and ended up putting him into the wall, that was my fault. Not his for not moving out of the way fast enough so I went up and apologized to him and we both agreed it was just a bad spot to try and force a pass but at nationals neither one of us wanted to give up the 0.1 seconds it would have taken to make that clean.
  • Dont forget the most important thing of all, have plenty of fun.
  • faster racers, dont get mad if a slower car hits you.
  • racing

    you act accordingly and appropriate at the race track. no screaming and no fighting! respect each other. always listen to the anouncer so you know where you are. dont take it so seriously. have fun! let the fast guys pass. you stay focus on your car. just remember you dont have enemy, the enemy is your laps. beat your lap time and do as many laps as you can with out hitting anybody's car.
  • What about.......Don't yell at Turn-marshalls! I don't know about you but I'm sure its happened at your local track as well as mine. Uncalled for-Period!
  • This isn't the easiest thing to do but if you are new to driving make slow clean laps, speed will come natrually.
  • What not to say after crashing into someone " Rubin is Racin", I had the inside line.... Just yell glitch and all is excused.....lol
