Simple ways to shave seconds off your laptime
Without the simple theory of losing a couple of pounds, these tips might help you find your way onto the podium.
- Be as smooth as you can, a common mistake made while racing is trying too hard, any aggressive turning or braking will affect the karts behaviour.
- Sit back and relax, learning forward, jumping up and down in the seat, or hanging out of the kart while going around a corner only disrupts the intended balance of the kart.
Hearing tyres screech around the track may sound impressive, but the kart is actually going sideways instead of forwards.
Anyone can go fast into a corner, but 9/10 times the driver will either run wide or find a tyre wall to slow them down.
