Getting Started in Pedal Car Racing

OK, so you’ve read the publicity blurb or seen a race or perhaps even watched something on TV and been
inspired to enter a pedal car race.

So what happens next?

First of all, you will need a team.

If you want to join an existing team, the best thing to do is to go to http://pedalcarracing.info/forum and ask some
questions on the online forum.

If you decide to form your own team, you will need get together the correct number of drivers (depending on age) and then either build, borrow (some teams don’t enter every race so cars are sometimes available to rent) or buy a car.

If you decide to build your own car

Again we suggest you register on the forum and ask questions and if you can come along to an earlier race. that way you can see what its all about, you can take photos and make notes and talk to us in the pits (honest we don’t bite). That should enable you to pick up plenty of ideas and work out what you want to do.
