New Driver Here

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! I’m new here and like all of you i’ve been bitten by the racing bug! I have a few HPDE and auto X events under my belt and I’m looking to make the next step to wheel to wheel. 

And I do understand the differences to wheel to wheel racing and track days.  But I was wondering about trying champCar out by doing arrive and drive.  What does a beginner like me need? (Aside from safety gear) I’d like to ideally find a team where I can learn from some seasoned veterans!


side note here’s a picture of my supercharged 2014 Camaro for attention 😂

Show up to a few races and talk to a bunch of racers.  Help a team out with wrenching and see everything that goes Into this.


The worst thing you can do is sign up to drive with somebody and only show up when it's your time to drive and not help.


Even if you are paying a team, you are expected to help with pretty much everything from setting up the pits, to changing the diff, to packing everything up.  Anything that a race team would do.


And....  hold your line.  Haha!
