Adding Categories

When creating pages or uploading images it helps the organization of the wiki if you add categories for the item to belongs to. You simply need to add [[Category:Category name]] at the end of a page or image description and you can add an item to as many categories as you wish.


Some examples of useful categories include:


Useful Templates

Driver infobox

For the basic driver infobox, you should use the following template:

If you're creating a new driver page you can copy and paste the following code and change the details yourself. As an example the code below produces the infobox for Adam Rouse on the right.
