Karting Tips - Race Start

Kart racing tips from our senior Race Director, Ian Seager

Race Start

Well the famous saying is that you can’t win the race at the first corner, but you can certainly lose it! Whilst it may be a great chance to overtake a few people it’s also your best chance of getting parked in a barrier! Have a plan. Decide which side of the track you would like to be on approaching the corner. Watch other races and see where the traffic queue forms to get round. See where people are spinning or getting slowed by contact. Then in your race position yourself, brake a little earlier and pick your way past the people making a mess of things. Job done...
