Model Answer 1:
I’d love to try motor racing because it looks so exciting. It’s something I’ve always wanted to try but have never gotten around to doing anything about it. But just recently my friend and I were talking about this – and we came up with a plan to try it later this year.
There’s a motor racing circuit (track) about 2 hours away from where we live, so we did some research on their website and also called them to make some enquiries about the different options they offer.
They organize special days for people like us, who have never done it before, to go along and try it. They offer a basic safety course and a kind of racing school seminar to teach the basic techniques and the technicalities of motor racing, for example, how to approach the corners, how to controlundersteer and oversteer and other essential tips and things you need to know so that you can drive well and safely.
Then you go out on the circuit for some time in a fully-equipped race car so that you can get used to how it handles and the speed and spend around an hour getting used to the circuit and driving the car. In the afternoon they organize a competition where you can race against other people who have also never done it before. So you get a chance to be on the race circuit in a competitive environment just like in a real race. I think there are several heats and then a final race to decide who the best driver in the group is.
So, we now have a plan to go in the summer. We need to save some money first because it’s not a cheap sport to do – but I think it will be really fun to try so I’m really looking forward to it.
Like I said, I’ve always wanted to try motor racing just because it’s so exciting and different from many other sports. I like the speed and the element of danger involved, although it sounds like they teach you a lot about safety before you even get into the car for the first time.
I think if we like it, and are good at it, we might plan to do a longer course and maybe do it on a more regularbasis in the future.
