Where could i start for racing
Experienced mechanics share their insights in answering this question :
Is the engine racing or are you interested in becoming a driver? If the engine is racing or revving high you can start at the idle control valve if your vehicle has one. If the throttle is electronic, there may be a malfunction in the electronic throttle body. If you are interested in becoming a driver try visiting your local speedways and talking to the teams that come out to practice.

The simple answer is yes. You can definitely become a professional driver, even if you start karting as an adult. For example, NASCAR drivers have an average age of 39. That said, most of you wonder if you`re too old for F1 or not.
With a new racecar, Brown said a yearly cost of $60,000 to $70,000 is common for racers who race a lot. Without a new car, it`s around $30,000 per year to race competitively, he said. `Competitively,` is the key word. As with anything, it all can be done for cheaper with used chassis, parts and a Crate Engine.
To answer the OP`s question it is never too old to start racing.
It`s never too late to start karting. Some exceptional karting racers are well over their 40s, and many start racing in their 20s.
Licensed participants must be at least 13 years old and may participate through the year of their 16th birthday. All runs must be made with an approved licensed supervising adult, who must be the participant`s parent or legal guardian or 25 years of age or older with a valid state driver`s license.
ROKiT British F4 is open to drivers aged from 15 years. Competitors must hold a valid Motorsport UK race licence, have completed the Advanced Novice Driver Training Course, and passed any requisite medical checks.
To sum up, no matter how old you are, getting into F1 is a mix of extreme talent, dedication, and substantial financial backing. If you lack any of the three, you`re probably not going to get into Formula 1. But that doesn`t mean that you can`t try car racing or junior formula racing.
F1 drivers will be hit with a colossal bill – just to compete in the 2023 season. There is a basic registration fee of €10,400 (£9,148 / $11,047) per driver, plus an extra €2,100 (£1,847 / $2,230) per point from the previous season.
F1 is famously known as one of the most expensive sports in the world, with the cars themselves costing tens of millions to just make one every single year. With such a high price tag on the vehicle, one has to wonder what the overall economic impact of the sport is across the now 23 tracks the cars race on.
One of the easiest ways to start racing is to enter an autocross event. These events are fun, friendly, affordable, entertaining, safe, and challenging. What is autocross, you ask? It`s a form of motorsport where drivers operate a vehicle through an obstacle course and compete for time.
First and foremost, NASCAR drivers are paid a base salary from their teams that can vary anywhere from $50,000 for developmental drivers to $10 million for acclaimed drivers like Brad Keselowski or Kasey Kahne.

Fuel pump engages. Batery good, alternator good volts, jump start helps when wont start. Temp does not matter. Intermittent?
Hello. Thank you for writing in. There are several reasons your vehicle may only start when jump starting. The first and most common is a build up of resistance that is causing you to need a boost of voltage to get the engine started. This may be due to poor battery cables, a bad ground connection, a poor starter solenoid, and a couple of other issues. The first thing you want to do is perform a visual inspection of the starting system. Make sure there is no corrosion build up in the battery cables. You can also check the resistance across these wires and make sure you have a solid connection between components. You then want to make sure the starter solenoid is doing its job. It is responsible for taking the small amount of electricity sent by the ignition and turning it into a huge electrical charge that is strong enough to push over the engine with the help of some gear ratios in its favor. Do some more testing, and stick to the basics before assuming its something seriously complicated.
Vehicle won’t start, once it’s jump started it only stays running until you turn it off, then it work start again without jumping.
Hi there. There could be two problems here. It is possible that your battery is bad and will not take a charge from your alternator while driving. In that case every time you shut your car off you will not have enough juice to start it again. Inspect your battery – it should have at least 12.5 to 13 volts to start your car, if it doesn’t you will need to replace the battery. The second problem could be that your alternator is bad and not charging your battery, in this case you will need to replace your alternator. Both the battery and the alternator can be tested in your car. If you would like to have the car checked for you, a certified professional from YourMechanic can come to your car’s location to diagnose the starting problem and proceed with repairs.
Cranks over start than dies
The idle air control valve is a small valve on the engine’s intake system that reads the air intake as it comes into the motor. This is controlled by the car’s ECM which uses this information to make adjustments to the air/fuel ratio depending on various inputs such as outside air temperature, intake air temperature, load and various other things. As you accelerate, your car’s engine is receiving a much higher dose of fuel than when at idle and conversely, when you let off the gas pedal, there is a sudden change in this fuel supply as a result of your foot letting off the pedal. When this happens, the job of the idle air control valve is to bring this deceleration down to a slow and smooth idle rather than suddenly cutting off the fuel supply causing the motor to die. When the idle air control valve is not working properly, this cause a disruption in this process resulting in the engine not being able to idle properly. I would recommend having a professional come to your location to diagnose and inspect your vehicle.
Why does my car struggle to start every 4th to 5th time?
It sounds like your starting issues may be linked to a problem with air metering or fuel delivery. A clogged or malfunctioning idle air control valve may show some of the same symptoms you are describing. The idle air control valve can be stuck in a cold start position which may work well if the car has been sitting a few hours, but as the engine warms up there must be a regulation in airflow. Consider hiring an experienced technician like one from YourMechanic who can come out for a closer look at your hard start situation and offer a more personal diagnosis.
When I start my car it doesn’t start after the jump start it started but later it didn’t and the battery was last replaced on 9/2012
As you may know when jump starting the car, the battery power provided is being supplied form the other car you are using to jump your car with. If the car does not start following the jump, this would suggest your battery may be dead and needs to be replaced. If the battery was last replaced in 9/2012, it is most likely time for a new battery as that is a decent amount of life for a battery.
Car was sometimes not starting, not even cranking when i turned the key then after a few times itd start. Now it ont start at all
Without being there to inspect your vehicle, or having information about what type of car, truck or SUV you own, it’s very hard for us to give you some advice. You might want to have a professional mobile mechanic complete a car is hard to start inspection; so they can come to your location and determine why your vehicle is having these issues.
My car will not start Intermittently. I purchased a new battery 2 weeks ago and yesterday the car wouldn’t start. Got a jump and
The issue you are having is probably due to an intermittent fault in the starter motor itself or a deficiency in the starter electrical circuit, for example a large voltage drop due to a poor ground or a high resistance connection. These issues can be readily diagnosed and resolved on a mobile basis if you request a hard starting diagnostic. If you request that diagnostic, the responding certified mechanic will get this resolved for you promptly. Based on Toyota’s Factory Service Manual, the battery should not be disconnected if the vehicle engine is running. The battery acts as a large resistive voltage sink and consequently taking the battery out of the circuit, while the alternator is still running, can create a voltage spike on the car’s electrical system which is not good for voltage sensitive components such as the engine computer. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic as we are always here to help you.
My Blazer will crank over but not start by itself. It needs starting fluid to start.
Hi there. If you have not replaced your EGR valve, mass air flow sensor or the TPS on your Blazer, you might want to start with these repairs. It is also possible that the throttle body itself is damaged, especially if you’re able to start it on fluid. If you want to avoid chasing parts and repairs, the best solution may be to have a professional mobile mechanic come to your location and complete a car is hard to start inspection.
