Want to become a better go-kart driver? Whether you use go-karts for racing or for a slow drive around the golf course, these six tips will help you become better at driving your go-kart.
Keep Your Hands on the Wheel
Just like in a car, you need to keep both of your hands on the wheel at all times. Having both hands on the wheel will ensure that you are prepared in case you have to make a quick swerve or turn.
Look Where You Go
Always focus on where you want to go. Do not focus on where you are now, because in a few seconds, you won’t be there anymore. If you keep your head straight and your eyes focused in front of you, you’ll drive smoothly. If you fixate on obstacles or other things you want to avoid, you might end up crashing into them.
Keep It Smooth
One of the most important things to remember when driving a go-kart is to focus on making the ride smooth. Keep your speed steady at all times. When speeding up or slowing down, do so gently and gradually; don’t suddenly slam on the brakes. Anticipate curves and turns ahead of time so that you can navigate them smoothly.
Keep It Fun
Focus on enjoying yourself! Smooth and fun is the way to go. Relax and don’t be too tensed up.
Study the Brakes
The brakes may feel different on different go-karts. Not all of them are the same. Some may require a more firm push to stop. One of the first things you should do when trying out a new go-kart is becoming comfortable with the brakes.
Keep practicing! Nobody’s a natural at driving any vehicle. It takes practice to hone your skills.
