The Difference Between Racing Cars And Street Racing Cars

Racing cars are known to have a general biffed up to engine and locomotive system meant for heightening the speed and efficiency of the motor vehicle. Racing cars will often have an engine system that sounds different from other cars, meaning that the engine capacity is more, and the performance is more improved than the normal cars. They are often associated with turbo engines, higher gearing capacity, sleek body shapes and even the inclusion of a second driver, all in a bid of improving its performance.  Therefore, are not used commercially or for any private purpose, but purely for competition.

With the thrill of high speed and the ecstasy associated with rough riding, many young people have desired to have a piece of racing action. Especially for the youth, it grows to be very exciting to see the speed at which some of the racing cars travel with, and beyond registering and training for races legally, many of them indulge in street racing.  The vehicles used in street racing are not so different from racing cars. However, they are normal racing vehicles that have particular add-ons that increase the capacity of the cars. These cars have excess speed capacities, and many young people desire their vehicles to be like some of the street race cars.2009 Nissan R35 GTR Skyline by AmericanCure 300x193 The Difference Between Racing Cars And Street Racing Cars

Street racing using these cars begun in the 30’s after some of the state laws denied the right of citizens to drive under the influence of alcohol. People decided to form races in places that were not hot spots for the police. Some of the common forms of races were and still are the drag race. Here, the competitors drive over short distances with top speeds so that the one who makes it to the end first is crowned the winner. Others include the tougher race, which is a competition along the mountainside, mostly done in Japan.

    I do agree with all of the ideas you have presented in your post. They are really convincing and will definitely work. Still, the posts are too short for novices. Could you please extend them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.

      As said above, the old saying goes To make a small fotnure in racing, start with a large one. I ran 3 seasons in SCCA Club Racing’s Formula Continental and did some US F2000 races as well, and ran a FABCAR Porsche 911 in some endurance events. I don’t even want to mention what that cost. The lesson I learned was that TV coverage of a series is gold. US F2000 lost their coverage in 2002, and it is nearly impossible to get sponsors interested in a series when they wont see their’ car on TV. Sponsorship is advertising, and if the ad isn’t seen it’s not effective. You will have to start out in karts or an inexpensive car in SCCA (or NASA) paying your own way until you can convince sponsors you can win and get them noticed. Formula Vee (like Steven) is a great class to start out in, as is Spec RX-7, Spec Miata, or Spec Racer Ford. The latter is a sports racer class that is fairly inexpensive (remember, this is an expensive sport/hobby all things are relative when I say inexpensive). Do a season or two in one of these, then try to move up to FC, F1000, or similar, or maybe T1/T2 or similar if you want to go touring car/GT racing later. Build seat time and experience, and build your resume and gain exposure. You will almost never find sponsorship in club racing, unless you have family or friends who throw a little help your way. Once you can consistently place in the top three and have some wins, you can move to trying to rent a seat in a car in one of the pro series. Grand Am and Speed World Challenge offer good programs with TV coverage; these are TC/GT series. If you want to go open wheel then the Formula Mazdas are THE way to go. Great package and great competition. You will be renting a seat (car) for the season (or maybe a few one-off races if the budget requires) from a team who owns and maintains the car, providing track support and a crew for you. This can run from $ 100k a season up to $ 500k and above depending on the series, the car, and which team (read: how competitive they are). To raise this money, you usually will need sponsors. You contract with a sponsor (or sponsors) to pay you $ X dollars in return for the exposure they will receive (in effect, you are selling them advertising to a key demographic). You are at this point a professional driver, and racing is now your job. To get such a highly sought after job, you will need a powerful resume, full of a greater amount of and higher-quality experience than others who are basically applying for the same job. You have to look the part, sound intelligent, and be someone the company trusts with their image, since you will become a spokesman and representative for them. Just like any job, you have to always strive to be the best around, and continually improve, because if you don’t someone else will. It is a lot of hard work and sacrifice, but if you truly want to race at a high level as a career, it will be completely worth it in the end.Oh, and you don’t HAVE to be under 25. It would really, really help, but if you want it bad enough the extra years you have driven street cars and experienced different things in traffic will at least help some, and the additional maturity can help shorten the learning curve. Search Elliott Forbes-Robinson and you’ll see someone who can still get into a competitive car and compete at the pinnacle of sportscar racing, so there’s not necessarily an expiration date. I’m 33 and having recovered from a broken back am now trying to get back into a car. But the younger you start, the more years you can compete, and seat time racing other cars is the only way you can gain experience and improve.
