Making The Most Out Of Sports Car Driving!
Your dream is finally close to being real! So how can you make the most out of it? There are a few tips to keep in mind in order to experience it all.
1. Be Smooth
Yes, you need to shift quickly. But you have to be very smooth as well, don’t be intimidated by a sports car, it still needs proper driving!
Don’t change from gear to gear or suddenly dive into the gas/brakes. Make sure you pause for a second and slide smoothly in every movement.
Driving well doesn’t mean driving as fast as possible, it means being able to have weight management and controlling the wheel gracefully without making it seem like you’re driving too fast.
2. Suitable Hand Positioning
The best hand position for driving a sports car is the 10 and 2 position on the wheel. Meaning having both hands on the opposite side to side. This gives a lot more control of the wheel, especially on high speed.
3. Properly Turn a Corner
The best way to properly take a turn is thinking ahead, when you hit the point where you begin to turn the steering wheel. At this point, the braking should be complete for the most part, you shouldn’t approach the turn and still think of hitting the brakes.
During the short time in the turn, between completely hitting the brakes and going back to accelerating, you shouldn’t be diving into any of both for a few seconds.
Start to hit gas as you’re coming out of the corner. After that, look where you are going during a corner not where you are right now, especially if you’re driving on a quicker pace than the rest.
Enjoy It Without Spending Too Much
Make sure you don’t do any irrational spending on cars by actually buying one. Unless you’re ‘really’ sure of your purchase, by then we recommend you make sure of your choice by trying out many brands through Rently.
