How to (Actually) Excel at Go Kart Racing

Earlier in the week, our friend Adrian wrote a very good blog about how you can improve your go kart racing skills with a list of tips.  In his article he also alluded to the fact that he has had a few “shameful performances” on our track in the past and has since turned to the internet racing gods for wisdom.  While all of his tips were valid and spot on when it comes to racing properly and shaving time off your laps, it troubles me to inform our readership that poor Adrian failed to implement his tips for his own racing during our latest outing this week and was instead bested by yours truly.  To be fair, he made drastic improvements since his last session and is still a very capable racer.  All rousing aside, I felt like I should weigh in on the debate of what racers should be doing in order to race extremely well. So here are the 4 things I personally stand by that help me keep ahold of that kick ass medal you see to the left of this paragraph week-in and week-out.
