WHAT IS GO-KARTING?
It is one of the trendiest sports nowadays. Go-kart which basically a four-wheeled vehicle which usually use and seen on Go-Kart Racing. The concept is just like racing in which everyone can try without being a professional go-kart racer. However, the word “everyone” does not apply to all ages. Health condition and capacity to drive should also be considered.
- There will be an orientation first before the actual go-karting event, in which they will show to you the dos and don’ts in a Go-Karting Event.
- Just be sure to listen attentively to orientation, you might be needing it once you are already in the race.
- Kartzone is also equipped with precautionary measures, so you don’t have to worry much.
- There are lots of stuffs there who will watch over you during the race. They are responsible for your karting activity and so please listen to them attentively if there are any reminders that are given by them. But of course, your safety lies at your own hands, they are just there to guide you. So better be careful for you to enjoy the race.
- If your problem is you haven’t even tried driving a car, and you might not be able to drive well during the race. Well, I have a tip for you. I have already gone to go-karting for the second time. And believe me, I don’t know either how to drive a car or even a motorcycle.
The Go-Kart has only two pedals, the break and the gas pedal. So your feet just really fit for that, you only have to control these two and steering wheel which allows you not to bump on undesired area.
(1.) Never step on the brakes and the gas simultaneously as it will cause the machine not to function well.
(2.) During curve areas, try not to step on the breaks with large force.
(3.) For first timers, do not hurry up, just memorize the road first and befriend your go-kart. As per experience, your go-kart may vary from other go-kart. Just take it slow to avoid any accidents.
(4.) Don’t over speed or else you will be raised with a flag or worst you might be engaged in an accident.
(5.) And the lastly the most important thing is enjoy and don’t be pressured.
