Beginner Tips For Surviving Your First Track Day Event in BC: Part 1

May 25,2022

If you are planning on attending the 3rd annual Track Day Event hosted by Area 27 in Oliver, BC for the first time, then you are in for a treat! Beginners needn’t worry as long as you take these tips into consideration.

Never try to overtake other vehicles while going through corners. Instead, focus on turning, braking, and hitting the apex correctly. This will ensure a safe and polite run. Spatial awareness is key if you want successfully overtake someone. Always pass on a straight and make sure that the other driver knows you’re there before moving up.

Do not tailgate. Some cars are faster in corners and slower in the straights and vice versa. If you are too close to another racer, you won’t be able to concentrate on your own braking. It’s also dangerous.

Be sure to warm your car before the run. Cold brakes and tires can lead to a crash in your first lap, which you definitely don’t want to do. Finally, keep in mind that this is not a race. It is a friendly event for everyone to enjoy. Sure, you probably want to be the quickest car on the track, but that’s not the goal at the end of the day.
