Cool Go Kart Racing

Probably the most fun I had in the last little while. If you have a few minutes, watch me own the track and other racers. I take pride on my skills hahaha.

It gets interesting with that one douche that we so slow, he was driving so defensively that it was hard to pass him... But I got him. Lol



Tell me what you think and your experiences.

Never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway.

I used to race enduros every wednesday. I love indoor kart racing!

It is kind of fun because the general public isn't very good.

So when I go to most tracks I can set a top 10 time for the track configuration in a few sessions

The new electric karts are different though. I love the instant acceleration.

I am a Vermonter living in California showing the locals how to keep it real!

Used to race these outdoor oval track ones. It really is pointless though. Even being the best in the world will get you no money. Thought at least sponsorships would arise then.

Nice. You're right most people are not very good, so it fun to pass them along...

I liked when you said, "Less brake. More gas."

I wish I could say that to drivers on the road!

Oh man that guy, he was taking the inside on every corner, I don't know if he was purposely driving defensively or was he plain dumb, I think the latter. But what made it worse he would brake at every apex.

sometimes I wish I was smaller so I could fit into these race machines, but at 6'8 and 230, its hard to compete with little horse jockeys at 5'5 buck20 ….

I just enjoy the local/regional competition. I don't think I'd ever go to Germany for the world championship thing.

I love indoor go cart racing....

Although I disagree with you all, it's no fun passing noobs.... I'd much rather have someone else who is good and have to think about the pass

Used to go fairly often back when I was throwing raves and club events, took all my headliners for a couple years to go do it pre show
