Karting in Sydney is fun, but it’s important to follow the rules and wear the correct protective gear. Read on for some tips and tricks before taking your first go-karting experience.
Wear the right clothing
- Wear a helmet. This may seem common sense, but it’s worth mentioning that you must wear a helmet while on the go-kart track. Some tracks will have them available if you don’t have one, but it’s best to bring one along, just in case.
- Wear long pants and closed-toed shoes (no flip-flops). The rubber tires can be very hot while spinning around and going fast on the track, so make sure that you’re wearing pants that fit comfortably and aren’t too loose so they won’t get sucked into the engine when sitting down inside a kart. Also, ensure that your shoes are firmly attached to your feet—the last thing anyone wants is for someone’s shoe to fall off during their ride!
- Wear long sleeves if possible because this will protect your skin from getting burned by any hot surfaces (rubber tires) or against other racers who may get bumped accidentally during their race(s). It’s also helpful if there are any sharp edges present at all because long sleeves can prevent cuts from happening underneath them instead of having these parts exposed directly against them without protection like short sleeves would provide instead when worn under certain driving conditions where contact could often happen between two moving vehicles such as racing scenarios with multiple cars involved at once!
Listen to the safety briefing
The safety briefing is important and should not be ignored or treated lightly. The Karting in Sydney will have a designated area where all drivers must stop before entering the Karting track in Sydney called the Pit Lane. This is where the briefing takes place. You must pay attention to what the safety briefer has to say and any instructions from your instructor on how to drive safely around other cars, over krebs, etc. Remember: driving dangerously can lead to injury or death of yourself and others.
Bring a change of clothes
Bring a change of clothes. You will get dirty, so pack something to wear after the races. A towel to wipe your face and hands is also handy, as are water, sunscreen, and a snack (you’ll be hungry).
Bring a camera. Seeing your appearance in video games when driving at high speeds around tight corners is fun!
Stretch before you race
Before you race, you must stretch. Stretching increases flexibility, which is important for preventing injury. You should always stretch before and after exercise. Stretching regularly is a must if you want to be at your best in karting in Sydney.
Before the race:
- Stretch your whole body by squats or lunges while holding onto something sturdy like a tree or lamppost (or maybe even someone else). This will help loosen up your legs so they can move faster when they’re out of their seats!
- Stretch your back, neck, shoulders and arms with simple exercises such as leaning forward and bending backward so that your hands touch the ground behind you (this one is called “downward dog”). Then twist from side to side like a rotisserie chicken until things feel good again! It’s also important to ensure any tightness around these areas has gone away because this could prevent injuries later on if there weren’t time for proper stretches beforehand.
Don’t do anything stupid. Don’t take risks with your own or anyone else’s life; don’t be a show off; don’t try anything silly like speeding up at corners just because someone else does – follow YOUR instructor’s advice about speed limits for corners (and everywhere else). The bottom line is that if something doesn’t feel right, then ‘DON’T DO IT’ – listen carefully so that you know exactly what needs doing when out on the track.
