Karting 2011-09-01 17:46:41 Reply

Have you ever gone karting?

I am pretty privileged, because there is a kart-track close to where i live. And i've been using it quite a lot. The downside is that it's so expensive.
I'm pretty good at it too. Better than average that is.
Also, it's really annoying when you're behind someone who races worse than you do, but won't let you pass and cuts you off constantly.

Anyway, tell me your karting experiences!

I did go karting this one time and it was on this place made of wood where everything was pretty rickety by most standards. It was really fun and I didn't get hurt or anything like that. Hey, if I did, you'd probably see a YouTube video of me getting hurt. It's been such a long time I have forgotten what it was. I remember that it wasn't as hard as I thought and there were few other go-karts in the area I was driving.

I've been a few times. The place where I used to go was great because you could keep your foot in pretty much the whole time. Getting a bit of a slide on the exit is nice as well.

Half the time I go to hit the break I hit the excelerate. I destroyed half the barriers basicly making a shortcut through the circuit.

Fuckin love go-Karting. I've only done it about 5 times. But I already feel pretty experienced. One session I was trying to drift and doing it pretty successfully when I slammed into the barrier. Hurt like hell.

I wanted to go on my Birthday. But my friends couldn't go due to the price.

Oh, that's too bad. But yeah, drifting is fun.. it does slow you down though.
I've gone about 7 or 8 times now (multiple heats every time) and i always end up in the top 5 of the day.
The track i race on is about 800 meters long with lots of turns. The average lap (of the average person) is about 45.50 seconds and my fastest one so far is 42.89.
The track record is 39.something, but that is because some people have their own karts there and modify them to perfection.

I've never tried it, and To be honest, I'm scared of Go-karting. I know I'd probably enjoy it if I got up the courage to do it. Have you ever crashed/ seen any one crash?

Nope. I've slipped a couple of times, but never crashed.
I almost did though. Above the track, there are yellow lights. Those lights are off. But sometimes they start to flash and that means someone had an accident and is standing still on the track so you have to drive slowly and carefully until the lights go off again.
The first time i went karting, those lights started to flash, but i was so focused on my race that i didn't notice them.
I went around the corner and saw someone in the middle of the track, standing still with a guy who worked them standing right next to the kart in order to get him in the race again.
Luckily i had a good enough reaction and i hit the breaks as hard as i could. I turned 180 degrees, but i didn't hit the kart or the person next to hit.

I went Karting around last year. The best part was that it was drizzling, so the road was wet. You know what that means... DRIFTING!

I loved doing 360's and spinning out of control when you go up to a curve. Nobody else was there so I was only one on the track. The best part about it was that the supervisors got in there Karts and pushed me around. No one got hurt, but it was really fun.

I've raced go-karts before. Dirt track racing. and i've drove them several times at local arcades places where i lived and visited. Also I'm on a team at my college that will build a go-kart fit for heavy off-road competition.

I used to enjoy it, but now after about 5 minutes of drifting I get kind of bored. Driving a manual car really makes putting your foot down to go forward quite boring.

Went last year. Ended up hitting a tire wall at 60mph. Hurt like all hell.

But it was great fun. Did the whole F1 experience with practice, qualifying and the race. Came 4th out of 20 or so people, so I was pleased.

Though one more spot and I would have won a trophy >:c

Ive been to a few places, and personally one of my favs is in kentucky. When we visit my aunt. It's a 1 mile long track, with 4 classes of karts.

Junior
Kid
Adult
Thunderbolt(requires 18+ and drivers license present at purchase of tickets for the kart)

and of course double seaters, but there meh.
It's really fun to race out and have fun, and you have a whole ton of track to change places and try and pass or run people off the road.

So, you only spend money when you're able to make more money with that investment?
