Everyone has something helpful to say.
No matter how many people I talk to I’m always amazed at how much information is out there. It doesn’t matter if you’re a hobby driver, semi-pro, or professional racer; I bet you’ve learned something that can help other racing drivers.
Why would someone want to write for Racers HQ?
Getting covered by the media is where most racers focus their attention. But creating media is far more effective. Not will you be getting your name (or brand, sponsors, business) in front of thousands of Racers HQ readers, you’ll be in front of thousands of people in your specific niche – many of whom are trying to learn the information you can put out there.
Educating others puts you in a position of authority and gives readers the opportunity to begin trusting you. And trust is a critical component in growing your brand and getting your name out there.

- An “ah ha!” moment that changed the game for you.
