World's Best Kart Drivers Analysed so You Can Copy them...On Video!
Terence Dove of Evenflow Kart
I'm going to show exactly what 3 of the
world's fastest kart drivers are doing on the UK's most simple
hairpin corner. I have deliberated
a great deal about whether or not to release this information,
because if you can nail this perfectly you won't need
All you need to do is exactly copy these
drivers to become terrifically fast...Of course when you get
to the track you will find this rather tricky...but you have
to start somewhere right!
Here we go...
Driver 1 Jason Parrot newly appointed
official Maranello Factory Driver
Watch the karting clip of Jason Parrot here first.
Then carefully read these notes, because it's the detail that counts
1. Jason approaches his braking zone with
his posture set, sitting upright. He then moves about a foot away
from the edge of the track....because he knows the kart is about
to step out when he brakes, and
he knows by how much exactly.
2. Watch carefully and listen hard for when he brakes. He brakes
hard and the kart's rear steps out.
3. Jason knew this would happen and holds the slide with gentle
adustment. Listen carefully to those tyres scrabbling for grip,
also notice he has allowed the kart to drift back toward the very
outside if the track before he turns in.
4. Before he turns the wheel into the hairpin, notice he has the
kart sliding with a little opposite lock. Then at his turn in point,
he turns the kart into the corner.This
is the important bit: he turns the wheel gently
and holds the steering wheel in postion...he does't turn in hard,
he turns gently with minimum turn.
5. He holds that steer angle on the wheel until he hits the apex.
And take not how he hits a late apex
6. As soon as he hits the apex he straightens the wheel
7. Next important bit:
After straightening the wheel he still needs to adjust the direction
of the kart- so he makes tiny adjustments, anxiously, and then gets
the wheel straight again...he is constantly concerned with keeping
that wheel straight ahead, and only turns in small increments...absorb
get a feel for Jasons style. he brakes hard and feels the slide,
his next priority is to use as little steering as possible, holding
the steering angle on the way into the apex, then straightening
on exit, keeping adjustment to minimum. You can see he is very keen
to get that wheel straight ASAP
