How To Get Started In Racing

October 7th, 2006

If the thought of road racing really grabs you, but you’re intimidated by all that’s involved, a new book out aims to give guidance and help make racing a reality. “Go Ahead – Take the Wheel“, by David Gran, outlines a path from HPDE to “wheel to wheel”. Emphasis is clearly placed on getting to a competition racing level, while staying within a reasonable budget for the driver. But, some of the other topics covered include safety, licensing, car preparation, maintenance, vehicle transportation, and mental preparation. Based on the reviews, it looks like a great book for someone starting out or trying to make it in the sport. Check it out at Amazon, and use their “Search Inside” functionality to scope it out.
