I’ve been karting a couple of times over the past month, with friends from work. I can’t remember the last time I went before that, probably 20 years ago…
Anyway, great fun. At first it seemed a little random, wasn’t sure taking racing lines was really working, drifting round corners seemed more fun! Still, last night I was really getting the hang of it. You can actually get faster laps taking proper, neat, lines.
Here’s the short version, a teaser trailer -
I liked how they have a screen with lap times and such. We all got quite competitive yesterday and did reasonably well.
The format was a 90 minute race, we had a team of 3 and a team of 4. The team of 4 raced for only £20 (as we replaced someone that had cancelled)
We’re next planning to do an 80 lap, every man for himself race. I’m not sure I’ll last racing for 40 minutes none stop!
Buckmore park is the one to go to. Twin engined pro karts, 85mph, excellent circuit with lots of elevation and a couple of big boy corners. If you fancy a race day there, then count me in, the indoor stuff is a bit dull in comparison.
