Deep down, most of us are wannabe racing drivers. But, be it the occasional track day, hillclimb, or club event, how many of us actually know what we're doing behind the wheel? More importantly, how many of us know what we’re doing wrong?

Well, in an effort to help shed some light on the Dos and Don’ts of racing, CarAdvice has launched a new series dubbed Racing Basics.

Together with Australian rally icon and Global Rallycross driver, Chris Atkinson, we hit the track in the new 150kW/265Nm turbocharged 1.6-litre four-cylinder Hyundai Elantra SR Turbo to take you through some of the key points on how to steer, brake, and change gears correctly, with Episode One focussing on steering.

Stay tuned for the next episode of Racing Basics, this Friday, and let us know what other racing techniques or skills you’d love for us to highlight.
