There are a lot of things in life that don’t always mix; oil and water, baking soda and vinegar, gas and fire. In the ‘racing life’ there are also a list of things that don’t always mix, in particular friendships on the racetrack. It’s no secret that even the most well run R/C car racing events take hours and hours to complete. During that time you find yourself on the track 4-5 times, usually 5 to 7 minutes each. The remaining 12 hours you are sitting in your pits, chatting with your neighbors, making new friends, and bonding with old friends.
What happens when those friendships leave the pit table, and head out to the racetrack?
There is an old saying in motocross racing, “When the gate drops, the friendship stops.” Some drivers share their friendship on the track, and take that friendship into account when racing with each other. Others leave the friendship off the track, and will do whatever it takes to win…no matter who they are racing.
Do you allow friendships to influence the way you race someone, or do friendships get left behind when the tone sounds?
