Proper Go Kart RacingGo Kart racing is great fun, for all ages. It is incredibly expensive to race cars, and therefore many simply prefer to have petrol-head fun with a go kart. However, there is a certain way to drive a go kart properly. By following these tips, you’re almost guaranteed to win at your next race.

  • If you want to win, you’ve got to realize that some karts are faster than the others. Even if they are the same karts, one will be faster. Make sure to look at yours before the race, and notice which kart seems to be more powerful, and is always pulling out in front. These are the ones that you want, remember the kart numbers and as soon as you can – run over and claim your beauty!
  • Aggressiveness is the key. Go kart sessions are short, and you can’t waste your time waiting for the perfect time to overtake somebody who is sticking to the ideal line for half the race. Use your bumper! Slam them into the tires, and go for the overtake! If you manage to do this, you are almost guaranteed to come out at the top of the leader board. Especially if you have managed to get to the fastest go kart at the start of your race.
  • It’s also important to check the tires on your go kart, so try to take a quick look at yours before the race. It’s incredibly unlikely that all go karts go through a tire change at the same time, so keep an eye out for a fresh pair of tires.

If you manage to utilize these three tips, you’re well on your way to becoming a go karting professional. The best part is that it is simple, all you have to do is to take a look at each go kart quickly before the race, and don’t be scared to be aggressive.
