Everybody wants to be the racer going first in every go kart race. If you want to stand on the podium, you need to know these hacks before your next stop at Andretti's Indoor Karting and Games.
Don't Lean in
When approaching a corner, avoid leaning your body, doing this will place more weight over your inside wheels. Instead, sit straight in the seat and keep the weight distributed over the kart.
Once you are inside the kart, adjust everything to adapt to your body and movements. Remember to check the pedals distance and your ability to achieve full throttle.
Hold the line
For the speed lovers, following the racing line is the best way of navigating the track as fast as possible. Drive like a pro and learn how to tackle every corner.
Don't hesitate to keep a good speed during the whole race. To be just as Hamilton and Vettel, keep things as smooth as possible, using both under-steel and over-steer to your advantage.
Make sure you are breaking in the right place. If you do it too late, or too hard, you will loose your speed and stability.
Steal the lead
There are always times when a racer blocks your way. In those moments master the art of overtaking and boss your way to the front of the grid by taking advantage of the little spaces and your fast reflexes. After paying close attention to his/hers moves be sure to take advantage!
It might be corny, but enjoying your time racing is the best way to win it. When you do things with passion and joy, success comes by itself. Try to keep a clear head at all times and avoid things like anger and stress, as both could lead to you making some rash decisions out there!
That's it, the best advice to finish first the next time you and your pals decide to battle it out at Andretti Indoor Karting and Games. Book your next race here or call 407.610.5020 and test your skills!
