About Racing Bets

Racing may not only include running but also other kinds of races like auto racing and motorcycle racing. And for each of these races, there are ways to bet. If a bettor must win, there are things to know and how to go about them. Especially for a race series like formula 1 which is one of the biggest car race series.

Auto racing runs through most of the year, making it a popular sports to bet on. Betting on the winner and betting on the matchups which pairs two drivers in a head to head wager are not the only ways to bet on an auto race. It is possible to bet on how many cautions will come up in a race, which car number wins and which car manufacturer wins. Picking a winner still is the most basic way to bet even on formula 1. With 11 teams and 22 cars, it might be a bit difficult to pick but so far Formula one attracts more money making opportunities for gamblers.

To bet on a particular driver on F1, it is important to note this one tip: During the practice sessions, watch out the performance of the driver, the performance of the car and how comfortable the driver is with the track. Learn more about betting on racing here.

Motorcycle racing

Motorcycle racing is the sister sport of auto racing and there are several types:

  • Enduro
  • Hill climbs
  • Road Racing
  • Motocross
  • Trials
  • Speedway
  • Track racing
  • Drag racing
  • Ice racing

The road racing world championship is one of the most popular events in motorcycle racing. It is important to always note that the outcome of any bet would depend on many variables and therefore the probability of winning is always difficult to determine. Speedway, which is a type of motorcycle racing where there is no use of brake has always been mind-blowing and even more exciting, but betting on Speedway would require even more research.

Motorcycle Tires

For Motorcycle riders, it is crucial to have some knowledge of tires. The age, size, load capacity, and speed rate, are factors that are important to a tire. Before choosing a new tire, the rider should either consult the user manual for the motorcycle or a bike dealer. Choosing the wrong tires could mess up the performance of the motorcycle, since they don’t meet the specifications.

Tire Categories

Differences in motorcycle tires are quite visible. The basic concept in making tires is however, relatively similar, and no matter what shape and size they are, they are still usually put into one of two categories.

The two categories of tires are called Radial and Bias. The main characteristics of each of them can have an effect on the wear and braking performance of the motorcycle. The Radial tires are often used in new model motorcycles, and have a longer lifetime; while the Bias tires are known to be used in older motorcycles and known to sustain heavy weight. The two tire categories should never be combined on a motorcycle, but it is generally safe to switch from Radial to Bias and vice versa, if the dealer has been consulted and agrees with the switch.

Sportbike Tires

Sportbike tires have little or no wet groove, as they are fabricated for dry roads and race tracks. They give more grip and acceleration on a dry surface. Riding with these kind of tires can however, be hazardous on wet roads or streets.

Inspection, Maintenance and Lifetime

Tires do not only serve the purpose of providing friction, they can also give signals, and the rider should always be attentive to these signals. It could mean that the tires are underinflated, there’s a leak, or even worse, damage on the tires.

5 to 10 years is the maximum number of years a motorcycle tire is expected to last. Environment and usage can cause tires to wear out faster. Don’t forget to check the date codes before buying any tire.
