At the drivers briefing
As a first timer, you will hear a lot of instructions from the Clerk of the Course, please listen carefully. You will then get to do a few familiarisation laps in your car. It's advisable to track down a more experienced person who will drive with you and explain the driving lines, apexes and braking points, etc., to get you around the circuit safely. Listen carefully.
Secrets to going quick
Car set up: Alignment, good maintenance and proper equipment
Seat time: Can't go fast if you don't practice.
Attitude: Your attitude to your driving and to other competitors will affect how quick you are.
A little driver courtesy will go a long way!
Coaching: Find someone who's quick in their own car and ask for help.
Remember that a low horsepower car has high handling characteristics. You can get your braking done before the
corner and get on the power early allowing you to be fast out of the corners.
