Go Karting is an exciting motorsport that leads to an adrenaline rush. If motorsports enthusiasts prepare themselves in advance, they can have an enjoyable experience. For first-time go-kart racers, we have compiled a list of helpful driving tips to make them win the race.

Tips to be a winner in a Go-Kart Race

  • Avoid Drifting

Don’t Drift and slide in any situation. If racers enter the turns sideways, the tyres slow them fast, and they can’t exit the corner when they slide on the track, then the track marshal comes to bail them out. This way, a racer loses valuable seconds on the trail.

  • Drive Fluently

The beginners might not consider karting a smooth activity, but it will be better if the novice racer tries to keep things steady and keep abrupt changes in direction at bay. It is more common sense, but with the presence of mind and alertness of another racer ahead and behind, it is easy to pass quickly. This drastically affects the lap time and reveals how accurate the driving skills are.

  • Follow the Racing Lines

To set up a racing line for the complete track, you’ll favour being aware that now and then, the quickest way around a turn can also now not be best for your average pace on the track. The racing line is the line that approves you to turn the least and use the little steering input. In go-karting, make a strategy about the turns – the turn-in point, braking point, apex, and exit.

The best racing line is to begin on the outer side of the turn, get near the inner side at the apex, and exit on the outer side of the track. If the racer follows the racing lines, it makes a difference.

  • Transfer the weight

This is quite a helpful tip to make you stand out among other go-kart racers. Take into consideration some basic science and try to understand the concept of weight transfer. On accelerating, the traction and weight transfer to the rear tyres, and on deceleration, the weight transfer to the front tyres. If racers begin to lose traction, they can put in little throttle to force the back tyres again into traction. It requires a good amount of practice to understand how throttling or braking affects the weight shift of the kart.

  • Pass like an expert

When someone masters the art to pass, is undoubtedly the winner. Besides being fun, it is also crucial to win without having the fastest lap time. Always remember to pass from inside the corner because it will pressure the opponent out of the racing line leading to a shorter distance to travel.

Take away

The most important of all is to have fun and enjoy Go-Karting. The more relaxed and happy you feel on the track, you will make smart decisions.
