I like to go fast!  Unfortunately the last time I tried to go racing the ships were sliding so badly I couldn't complete a lap.  To race in I have an Omega, an M50, and a Khartu-al.  

You have to use your after burn and velocity ladder to cancels out vectors and mind your speed. Use your boost to your advantage and know when to slow down when making a turn.

YAY Racing!!! Funny thing for me racing never had an appeal. When I started in Arena Commander May of 2015 I was so bad at combat I decided that racing was a great idea to improve flight skills, it is an obstacle course after all. I have grown to love racing for the first time and in Alpha 2.4 I think my rankings were good enough for me to post them here. 

Some day I hope to have a decent combat rating.

I have to admit I do not think I have much to offer in the way of tips. What I do is check the old leaderboard for time then practice for days in the drone sim till I get a decent time. Once I have a decent time I get in the public track and do my best to match or exceed my practice time. Basically what you said above is more important,

You have to use your after burn and velocity ladder to cancels out vectors and mind your speed. Use your boost to your advantage and know when to slow down when making a turn.

I would describe that as, use your boost to push yourself into tighter turns, use your after burner to punch across straightaways, know what turns are going to burn up to much boost fuel and lay off both boost and after burner and slow down for those turns.

I like the longer tracks because they presented a far greater challenge and I assumed they would improve my flight skills more. Turns out most people seem to hate the longer tracks because they are there for the REC and you get far less REC per minute on Rikkord Memorial Raceway and Defford Link. I gain an advantage, YAY!!

Five things: Mind set, knowledge of ship performance and controls, practice, practice AND you guessed it more practice.

I fail horribly in knowledge of controls, gsafe on or off, I dunno. Comstab on or off, I dunno. Is there any gain by changing power settings, I dunno. How to change power settings, I dunno. I do know when to hit after burner but my flight stick is kinda broken and most of the time that split second need to do what I want fails.

Mind set: do you want to be a pilot? racing = good. Do you want to be a combat pilot and your already awesome? racing = waste of time. You want to be a combat pilot and your horrible? racing = really good (it's an obstacle course). You like racing? Practice = perfect.

That is much more than I imagined I could describe and if it helps one person then it is worth the time to took to write it all out.

      We’re returning from our hiatus with a brief announcement for this months Game Day, which will be held this next Saturday, December 15th! With the recent explosion of content in the form of patch 3.3, and even more patches in the near future providing exponentially more places and events to explore, we wanted to provide some assistance to those that were looking to enjoy the new additions to the game, but wished to do so with some friends and org-mates.
      Joining Game Day
      In pursuit of that goal, as mentioned above, this next Saturday will be the next Game Day, held from 1600 UTC to 0400 UTC. If you are interested in playing Star Citizen with other members of the community, join us on TeamSpeak in the Game Day channel section! If you’re looking to do something specific, such as explore the PU, shoot one another in Battle Royale, or get some flight hours in Arena Commander, follow these steps:
      Create a sub-channel in the relevant parent channel of the Game Day section of TS
      Include LFM, or LFG in the title of your sub-channel
      In the channels description provide an idea of what you’re looking to do
      Alternatively, you’re welcome to hang out and chat in the Landing Channel should you desire a break from the game!
      Some minor changes from the format of our last Game Days will be effective for this month. We’re going to omit having hosts present for each hour of the event, opting instead for staff to enjoy the game alongside all of you. We’re looking forward exploring the new content with everyone!
      With that, we hope to see some of you next weekend, and we wish all of you safe travels and happy holidays! We’ll be back next year with more events in store, so we hope to see you then!

      What's up everyone! New recruit here as of early last month and finally finding my way around. I went with the starter Mustang but have since purchased a Cutlass Black and loving it. Have been able to get a few of my friends into this as well and we're finding out some things that work and others that don't...like your crew mates can fall out the ramp door while quantum traveling (wtf was he doing back there anyway?). 
      Flew the Blade tonight and it was cool. Want to take the Glaive out before the expo ends. Taking the Caterpillar into space from Lorville was interesting. On daily and ready to rock and roll 
      Glad to be here, eager to play and can't wait to get into a Reclaimer or a Hammerhead
