Wow, I can't believe it's been over two years since we opened our
doors! Time really does fly when you're having fun.
We have made an effort to improve the value we offer our members
here at M.I.K. Looking at the next 3 months specials we have a
number of opportunities for you to save money with your racing
addiction. The "Oval Track" and "Lights Out" racing seems to be the
most popular events. We have also changed the NAPA 125 format
with qualifying no longer required, so sign your team up
A lot of you have asked me how to go faster on the track. The
number one mistake I see is driving too aggressively. Smooth is
fast- if your tires are squealing, you're losing speed. It goes
against your instinct but you need to slow down before the turns;
especially turn 3, so you can get on the gas just after the turn
and should be on full throttle by turn 4. If you don't currently
do this, work on that line and your times will improve.

Most of the staff at Maine Indoor Karting can...
