Pit Talk

pit talk

Pit Talk is an information blog for the racer, by the racers. We want to create a store of information that can be useful to racers of all abilities. The blog can be populated with articles like reviews, set up guides, racer interviews, hobby articles, etc. We would also like it to be more formal than general group discussions where there articles formatted so that other racers will enjoy and even refernce back to for beginners.

006If you think you have what it takes to write something that others will enjoy please contact us via the contact page. The article will need to be around 600 words, if you have images to accompany it that would be great but not essential. It can be anything from a review of your speed controller to a guide to how to build a chassis. As reward for your article we can offer an advertising space in the middle of your article for you to paste your own adsense code. This way you will earn money for how successful your article is. Alternative to that we can offer some free track time during a club race meeting. All articles will be checked by our site editor and race specialists before publishing, but please don't let this put you off as they are far more likely to offer suggestions than reject your article. We know there are a lot experienced racers out there that have a lot of knowledge to share, we can't wait to receive your first article.
