Inside the Cockpit

You will see a seat, a steering wheel and pedals. But the inside of a race car is very different than the inside of a regular car. You don't turn a key to start it, you flip a switch. You won't find a speedometer, but you will see other gauges. Built for safety, not comfort, it takes a lot of concentration and stamina to drive.
