How NOT to win a shifter kart race - by Andrew
Ski glove on left hand, Mechanix glove on right, I take to the grid ready
to start the action!
"Alright," I think to myself, "my kart is (finally) sorted! Didn't have
time to change the track width since the morning, so the kart's still set
up for running in the wet... It'll be a handful trying to keep the thing
stable in the corners! But you gotta make due with what you have, right?
Oh crap, I forgot to fix my clutch!"
And that's the story of how I was passed by 5 karts on the start. Welp.
It's obvious in the first lap (after the last turn toward the start-finish
line) that I'm not going to beat anyone on the straights with the engine
package I've got, no matter how much extra exit speed I carry! My only
option is to carry more speed into the corners, and use the kerbs to keep
the kart going as straight as possible.
I'm thinking I'm going to pass kart 19 in lap 2 and I'm right up on her
going into the left-hander, when *SPLOOSH*
A fountain of slippery liquids erupts from the kart in front of us, and I'm
unable to slow down quick enough to avoid hooking up with her.
Lap 3. Noticing #19 is slow through the bus-stop, I line it up in my sights
for a pass into the up-hill right-hander. I thought for sure #19 would hit
the brakes when I went up the inside, but... Let's just say the pass made
quite a splash!
Lap 4. "Man, I feel bad about that... No, don't feel bad! GOOOO
Lap 5. "Gettin faster... stick to
your line. Finesse is key."
Lap 6. "I'm getting faster, but I
know I'm leaving almost a full second out there on the track. I just gotta
string together my braking points and my apexes... Hey, it looks like I'm
gaining on the guys in front. I might even pass them in a couple laps! I
wonder if that'll put me on podium?"
Lap 7. "Damn, I'm gaining pretty fast! First righthander... Good apex! Nice
track-out! Here comes the dual-apex left-hander, downshift one gear and
roll into the corner... CAREFUL not to jack the kart too much, or you're
sidways... nailed it! Okay, carry as much speed as possible onto the
straight.... YEAH! THIS LAP IS A FLYER!"
"Here comes the braking zone... Awesome! Hear those tires squeaking! Now
use the kerb................???
Why can't I steer? HOLY SH--
Oops, I should have done a mechanical inspection on my kart in preparation
for the race...
Laguna Seca ICC vs Superkart s Jason Santander F125, Birel CRS
... I caught up and was dicing places with superkarts at Laguna Seca Jan
29, 2011. weighed in at 405 lbs, 20 over spec. Every lap till finish was
like this whole vid, no clean lap. Camera battery dies 15 min after. One
of these laps was a 1:37.441, my goal for this day was a 1:35 second lap,
doable if class had a bigger gap with superkarts. Towards the end on this
vid i was settling behind Kart #11, it is pointless to pass a superkart.
ICC= 125cc, Suprkart= 250cc. Thanks to Jerome, JasonB, Erik, the Kemps,
Nick, Brian,and everyone. Special thanks to Kerry Matthews and his
contribution to the sound testing, & Jason Bell for his kart, they are a
big part of making Laguna Seca happen for NCK and future racing here.
Major support for Cambrian Gokarts, Fastech Racing, & RLV tuned Exhaust systems. Jason Santander
