Juliana Grasman showed her love for cars from a very early age. She is now one of the competitors in an all-male line-up in many races. She was born in Russia and grew up in Kazakhstan, and even though the odds were against her, she managed to establish herself as one of the prime candidates on the circuit. She has amassed a number of wins and has played her role in promoting the sport for women as well. If you want to get into racing, here are a few tips that will help you.
Start learning on simulator
The driving simulators on computers give you a pilot-scale experience at the wheel of a race car. Depending on the type of simulator, it is possible to choose the race mode and the circuit, but also to customize the driving settings to feel as comfortable as possible during the race. The sensations of acceleration and braking are much stronger than with a home console and this practice allows you to start learning to ride a sports circuit.
Adopt an irreproachable lifestyle
Contrary to what one might think, behind each great pilot hides a high-level athlete who maintains his physical condition. Also, in addition to the hours invested in perfecting their driving style, it will be necessary to practice endurance sports, go for coaching and then maintain a very active lifestyle.
It is advisable to establish a varied regimen with workouts to focus on all parts of the body. From the head to the toes, the body is subjected to a severe test during the race and when it comes to driving for several hours, so endurance is essential.
In addition, more and more athletes are also using mental preparation to improve their concentration, rapid reflexes and avoid stress. Grasman focuses on her mental capabilities and ensures that she is ready for each race.
Perfect circuit riding
Everyone knows the old adage "practice makes perfect", and it also applies for car drivers. Whenever possible, it will be necessary to switch from a simulator to circuit driving behind the wheel of a race car. Start at an early age on a kart so that you have the feeling.
Most novices will be able to start with circuit pilot tests with a small car, but as your experience grows, you can then make the switch to bigger vehicles on faster tracks.
