they ever dreamed of being spectators at the Grand Prix of vintage cars, but of
sitting themselves in a race car? Here you’ll find how to do it. Basically,
it’s very simple.
In fact, it’s not that complicated to go to the start with a race car, and the race itself is not that difficult. You can read below in three steps how to do it and how to make money by becoming a professional race driver: you need a race license, refractory driving equipment – and of course a race car.
don’t need to buy it right away, you can also rent a vehicle and a service
first and see if this whole thing gives you pleasure.
important to take one thing into account: you probably won’t be Formula 1 world
champion anymore, which is why you can race calmly. And even if it is not
mandatory, it is highly recommended before the first use of an ordinary driving
course, with addresses the German Motor Sport Federation. After all, the old
saying: “To be first, you have to arrive first”.
The racing license
license alone is not enough – before the first use, you need a racing license.
Don’t worry, you don’t need to get an additional driver’s license for the
circuit – the historical license for motorsport, short for H-Lizenz, you will
simply get from the German Motor Sports Federation: the site’s request https://www.circuit-1.com

the family doctor, send it to the family doctor, send it Ready.
costs 189 euros per year (239 euros if you are not a member of a big club like
the ADAC or the AvD), which allows you to drive virtually everything except GP
racing cars and prototypes in the historical field. For these, you need an
international C license, but it only exists when you have reached the top 50 in
your class five times in one of the other classes.
although no courses or other courses have been requested for the normal H
licence, Dietmar Lenz of the DMSB urgently recommends a driving course:
“You learn the correct behavior on the circuit and especially the signals
of the flag.” One- to two-day courses start at 600 euros, the addresses of
the organizers are available at the DMSB.
Not only do
you look as bold as Steve McQueen, but the fireproof suit and helmet are
supposed to protect you in an emergency.
turn around: motorsport can be very dangerous. If, on the north loop, you take
the section of the airfield in wet weather in a slight drift or if you rush into
the fox tube at more than 200 years of age, you should do everything possible
to be protected in the event of an accident. For example, in the case of a
historic passenger car, a solid roller cage, six-point belts, etc. (see also
the next chapter).
driver protection starts with the helmet: drivers of closed cars gladly take
the open helmet, but the closed variant and the stable visor are recommended,
especially for formula carts – especially because stones are always raised by
the previous passenger. Current helmets are usually equipped with HANS
recordings, the “Head and Neck Support” is intended to stabilize the
driver’s head in the event of an accident. Here too, the decision whether or
not to use the system often rests with the driver.
Buying race cars
One day you’ll want to have your own car with GPS navigation for your tour trips – maybe from the start. Anyone who inquires as a beginner in the driving camp, quickly discovers that there are in fact no private cars ready to run or GT below 20,000 euros.
run means that the car is built according to the rules of The FIA’s Annex K. It
does not contain illegal adjustment measures such as a more modern engine, more
cylinders, modernized brakes or anything like that, which does not leave the
technical marshals leaving you on the tracks.
addition, there are safety features: a recognized tracksuit cage, a stable race
seat, six-point belts, an emergency extinguisher and fire extinguishers. And of
course, a valid FIA card that confirms that everything is accurate.
euros, we then find with a little luck an Austin-Healey Sprite, from 25,000
euros also an Alfa Giulia, and with that we are already quite sure the road.
Some now dodge in the youngtimer review, because there are sometimes already for
only 10,000 euros and Audi 50 or Polo. Now, what happens willingly: Especially
beginners racing gifted for crafts think that everything is better and cheaper.
