If you fancy circuit racing, then take a look at Citroen C1 racing, single seaters, mighty mini’s and get a feel for what is involved. Visit the pits and talk to the drivers and get some idea of the level of commitment and typical costs. Be especially sure of the costs, not just entry fee’s but hotels, transport, equipment and spares. We strongly advise that you join a local club which will give you the opportunity to try some low-cost motorsport.
One of the best starting points is hill climbing where you will learn the basics of car control and it will give you the experience you need to move into other types of racing. Another option is one of the manufacturer series where you will be supported through the process from getting your licence to on track mechanical support. Ginetta run a range of racing series for the novice driver – https://www.ginetta.com/.
Next you will need to get your licence by applying to the Motorsport Association https://www.motorsportuk.org/Get-Started and getting the appropriate Go Racing pack. This is followed by an Association of Racing Drivers (ARDS) test which will test your knowledge of the rules and a driving test. Once the test is passed, you have a car and a trailer you can go racing.
