If you are new to road racing the most fundamental issue is your bike handling in a group. If you haven't mastered this subtle art you will a) hurt yourself b) (and much worse) hurt lots of others.
The best thing to do is to start by riding with friendsin a group in a non competitive environment. You can progress by finding a local club, explain that you are new to the game and ask them to help you to learn. Once you have done the social group riding bit move on to either a) training at the track as a novice or b) an intro session with a RR organisation (Surrey League do organise these at various times)
You can gain the speed you need to be competitive by loads of different methods. I'd recommend a mix of TT, red car training and hill sprints. Have fun, FE.
