Advice for First Time Racers From BTE Racing Fans

Advice for First Time Racers From BTE Racing Fans

We recently asked our BTE Racing fans on Facebook to share some advice they’d give to first time racers. We got lots of solid tips, so below we share some of our favorite responses:
 
  • “Race at the level you can afford.” - Dustin Brenton
  • “Practice practice practice! Seat time is your best way to learn. Hit up some test and tunes where you get more than two or three rounds.” - Dave Heaton
  • “Leave on last yellow, do the best you can do, dial honest.” - Daron Creech
  • “Just hold it to the floor and make sure you shift.” - Doug Boulanger
  • “Relax, don't worry about the guy/girl in the other lane, their presence is not gonna make you any faster or slower, or make you cut a better or worse light. Run your own race as if you're on a solo hit.” - Greg Ryan
  • “Learn to listen.“ - Robert Anthony Lezzeni
  • “Have fun and be around friends that will support you, not use you for this hobby. Just be yourself.” - Rob Kruger
  • “Relax, concentrate, believe.” - Jake Howard
  • “Get the feel of the car and work your way into becoming a racer and safe at the same time.” - Willie Earl Mitchener, Jr.
  • “Have fun and don't take a loss or mistake to heart. Everyone makes them.” - Patrick Seely
  • “Ask the guys that are kicking butt questions! Buy the good parts! Have a plan.” - Joseph E. Johnson
  • “Focus, be alert, be safe.” - Andrew Faraci
  • “Don't do it, it's more addictive than any drug and you'll never be able to shake it!” - Neil Morley

Thanks to our wonderful BTE racing community. We appreciate you!
