Using a unique dataset containing over 56,000 simulated auto races spanning two years, we analyze risk taking and risk preferences of participants, in particular at the margins. We find that when there are kinks in the “wealth” function, players take less risk given opportunities to increase wealth at a kink and take more risk when given opportunities to lose wealth at a kink. We also explore other potential research topics available with this rich dataset.
