/asp/, I'm going go-karting tomorrow with friends, and we're all pretty competitive
I'm always 2nd or 3rd (out of 7), and always lose time at the hairpin bend. I just can't figure it out
The track is around 3-4 karts wide
As a former go-kart racer, hold the inside with everything you've got. Your average joe can't finish an outside pass most of the time. If you've got a cart length or two to spare swing out and hit the apex of the turn, carrying enough speed to all but hit the outside wall on exit. Otherwise hold the inside and pray you can get the inside on the next corner.
