Keep Your Cool


Rac­ing is tense. We get it. And it can be frus­trat­ing when you make a mis­take—or if some­one else does—and it costs you time.

Get­ting mad doesn’t fix it. It’s un­pleas­ant for the peo­ple around you, and it’s no fun for you. But back to win­ning races: Mad is slow. Ex­pect to make twice as many mis­takes when driv­ing an­gry, and as each new mis­take makes you an­grier, you’re go­ing to make even more mis­takes. Take a breath. You’re rac­ing toy cars for brag­ging rights, the stakes couldn’t be lower. Be cool, keep a level head, and just con­cen­trate on putting down con­sis­tent laps.

“That guy yelling looks re­ally cool,” said no one ever.
