You hopefully wont, keep your foot off that back brake. and if you find yourself tightening up in turns, or becoming a little tense (you'll understand what im talking about when you'll be at the track) just loosen up and maybe slow down a tiny bit. They'll go over a lot of stuff that will help you prevent crashing, oh make sure you grab those little ear plugs when youre registering at the office. and wear those ear plugs on the track!
