Racing Tips

Wear Closed Shoes
Protect your feet and your toes from bumps and scrapes. Racing is not for sissies
Protective Wear
We provide helmets. Keep them on whilst in your kart and rev up for the ride.
Moving Your Hands On The Wheel
Unlike in a car, karts have extremely sensitive steering, so always keep your hands at the ‘quarter to three’ position and do not let go. Not only will this give you more precise control over the kart, but you will be able to react to slides much faster.
Not Using All The Track
You can use as much of the track as you like, so utilize every centimeter to go faster. The wider you can make each corner by being at the tracks edge before the corner, and getting close to the apex, the easier it will be to carry more speed.
Trying To Get Out The Way

A kart track is an intimidating place for new drivers, and this is made worse by experienced drivers flying past you at what seem like impossibly high speeds. Firstly, remember that they have been doing it a lot longer than you. Ignore faster karts passing you. It is safer to concentrate on your own driving and let them find their own way past. You will be much more predictable and easier to pass if you are doing your own thing.

Keep your hands in the 'quarter-to-three' position, and don't let go of the wheel

Brake hard, to the point where the wheels are almost on the point of locking, then smoothly release them.

Do not turn in too early.

Use every centimetre of the track available to you.

Steer smoothly

Always look one stage ahead of you – so if you're at the apex of the corner, you should be looking at the exit.

Don't worry about faster drivers coming up behind you – stick to your line and try and see where and why they're faster than you.

In our opinion, karting is one of the best and most exhilarating things you can do, and that excitement and anticipation is what makes people come back for more. Just remember, being a quick driver comes from driving better, not driving harder, so try to contain your excitement when you get on circuit and build your speed up gradually. Most of all, enjoy it. Not everyone will be an F1 champion, so having fun is far more important than being the best.

Tie Up Your Hair
Ladies, we love your hair done however hair can get caught in the most unlikely places. Keep it tied up to be safe.
Don't Lean In
Don't Lean in. As you approach each corner, avoid leaning your body towards the apex as doing this will place more weight over your inside wheels – exactly the opposite of what's needed.
Braking Too Softly
Kart brakes act on the rear wheels only. The best way to brake in a kart is the opposite to on the road: you should hit the brakes hard initially so they almost lock, then as you get closer to the apex of corner, gradually and smoothly release them.
Steering Too Aggressively
In a kart, precision is the key to being fast, and being smooth makes this much easier. A lot of inexperienced drivers will turn the steering wheel sharply, causing the front to slide – this is known as understeer, and the kart will feel as if it wants to go in a straight line.
Stay Alert
As much as we want you to let loose, always remain alert of other drivers and keep your eye on the finish line.
Keep Moving
It is a race after all, what are you waiting for, go, go, go!
Turning too early
One common thing you often see from both beginners and more experienced drivers is turning into corners too early. If you find yourself sliding after the corner, or you think you are losing speed out of the corners, try slowing the kart down a bit more before you turn.
Not Looking Far Enough Ahead
Getting in a kart for the first time can be a sensory overload. Karts are extremely low to the ground, making everything feel twice as fast, but often people compound this by looking only a few metres in front of the kart. Looking further ahead will make everything feel like it is happening slower, because your brain has more time to process what is about to happen. As a rule, you should always look one stage ahead of where you are. So, when braking, you should be looking at the apex, at the apex you should be looking at the exit, and at the exit you should be spotting the next corner. It seems small but it makes a massive difference.
