About This Quiz

If you feel the need for speed, but you don't really want to get in an airplane, then motor racing is a great option. When it is done correctly with the right safety precautions, it can actually be very safe. However, a lot of people never think of it as something regular people just try, imagining that it is the exclusive preserve of the professionals and something we mere mortals can only watch and marvel at on our TV screens.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Anyone can enjoy a track day or sign up for a more amateur level type of race. It just depends on how fast you want to go, how much time and money you want to spend, and how much of a badass you want to be. 

Of course, some types of racing like Formula One are absolutely professionalized (and would be very dangerous for an amateur), but others are more open. 

So take this quiz, and let's find out which sort of racing suits you best. Perhaps it's drag racing, maybe it's rally cross, or perhaps it's stock cars. Either way, it's definitely more fun and safer than merely trying to turn your commute into a race - so let's get started!
