SITTING POSITION IN KART
Get the marshell to move you into the correct position knees slightly bent both seat and pedals move to get comfortable.
KNOW THE RULES
They are there for a reason, and that is to keep you and everyone else safe. More often than not, making contact, sliding or driving erratically or aggressively will not only slow you down, but will risk you being removed from the track. This will not improve your laptimes.
Other drivers may not drive predictably – so you’ll always need to anticipate and look well ahead to spot (and react to) any obstacles, opportunities and signals from the marshals. Anticipate early, and you’ll always have the advantage.
KNOW YOUR LIMITS
It may not look it, but karting is a physically demanding sport. If you feel excessively tired or unwell, pull into the pits and let us know. You won’t win any medals for finishing the race at the cost of your personal wellbeing. The same goes for ability – if you don’t feel fully in control, slow down drive at a pace you are comfortable with you’re here to enjoy yourself.
Go out, enjoy it, improve your driving one step at a time and your speed and technique will come to you naturally winners are based on fastest lap not position.
So pull back from whats ahead and give yourself the best chance of a fast lap.
BE AWARE OF YOUR KART SIZE
The karts look small but they are a lot bigger and wider than you think so keep in mind when you are entering corners and in traffic.
Nice smooth lines will always help you lap times break going into corners and accelerate out of them it track is clear.
