Few Stuff about Go Karting

Many would not know what a Go Karting is, and they might have seen it in movies and stuff.

Well me and some of my friends go for go karting sometimes, just wanted to share some of my experience with you guys.

Go Karting is an Motor sport which is a real fun to drive, as it contains speed in it it can also be a sheer dangerous sport also.



For the first timers it can be little frightning also as you try to control the vehicle, it always won't follow your command, & it is difficult to handle, as you don't know how the vehicle will react.

After getting to know the vehicle, it can be real enjoyable every lap, for the first timers, the track handlers always insist you to drive slowly, as they are certain that you will wipe out, and you do.

When i first drove, i felt i am gonna crash on every corner, so took few laps slow and tried not to crash, if i crash i would face real shame from my friends, and would have to leave the track as it is the rules of the game.

But after getting an edge you can drive these Karts, real fast and you can put the engines of these little cars to the best performing level, take the corner in real confidence. Too much confidence you can turn the Kart 360 with just a little more acceleration.



To drive these karts can give you an real adrenalin rush, and can be addictive.

The Karts are designed to get low drag, and are equipped with engines which can churn out so much torque that just hitting the gas for the first time can make you loose control. So advised to take it slow for the first time.

As you get professional with the sport you can turn the corners swiftly, with higher speeds, But you must also keep an eye on the track ahead and your competitors, as they can approach you with every angle possible in the track.

Trick is to finish the lap with best time, ahead of your competition.

Before getting into an Kart you must always have basic knowledge of the safety gear provided and safety measures to be adapted for your safety in the tracks.

Gears required...
1. Fully covered Helmet with clear Visors.
2. Jackets
3. Gloves
4. Shoes


The karts are driven with highly charged Fuel for better performance, this is done only by professional drivers who are well trained and know these karts very well.



Myself and my friends have driven these karts for many years, and are fully aware of there pro's and con's and we often race together neck to neck to reach the finish line as fast as we could.

Thats how the sport is, thats how it is handled.

Caution: Auto sports is dangerous and should be executed with precaution and with necessary safety measures.
