Most Formula 1 drivers start their career on a karting track, participating in a number of races before they are old enough to obtain their driver’s licenses. While investing in a child’s karting career can be expensive, there are ways to save money. For example, parents can purchase a used kart, rather than buying a new one. There are also many websites that sell a selection of parts and motors from which parents can construct their own vehicle. People can also rent karts from karting tracks and youth motorsports clubs.

Another way to reduce expenses is to purchase pre-owned safety equipment. While new equipment, including a helmet, gloves, driving suit, and neck collar, can cost more than $350, parents can buy previously owned gear for a mere fraction of that amount.

A managing principal at Aero Marketing Group in Phoenix, Arizona, Jason Altzman has dedicated more than a decade to the firm and helped clients with a myriad of tasks, ranging from promoting new products to creating consumer-engagement opportunities. Aside from his career, Jason Altzman enjoys traveling.

Planning a more affordable trip involves knowing fare patterns that occur in the airline industry. According to Fare Compare, prices on domestic flights are more favorable to consumers on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. These three days have fewer travelers. Also unpopular, but inexpensive, are dawn and red-eye flights as well as those taking off during dinnertime.

In terms of the time of day to purchase a ticket for the best value, travelers should book on Tuesdays around 3 p.m. Eastern time. Airlines typically post sales as well as offer fare-matching, which creates more deals. If unable to shop during that time, domestic travelers should stick with the rule of booking flights 30 days to three months prior to their intended departure.
