Newish player looking for a group

so ive been playing solo for about 2 months now and ive hit a point where its gotten dry playing by myself. i want to get into player races but my limited exposure to online adventure is kinda bitter from dive bombs and side swipes. i want to learn all about this game and race in a more “mature” manner i guess. i want to be a part of a group where i can learn the ins and outs of tuning for all different occasions and with a group that does more cleaner style races. anyone have any recommendations?
