Check out our fall specials and don't forget we are now closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. Check out the next oval night. It's open to any adult driver now!

Handling G-Forces

A few people asked me how to handle the G-forces they get while racing at Maine's fastest indoor go-kart track.

Unfortunately there is no known solution if you're susceptible to motion sickness. (It's an inner ear thing) There are a few recommended ways to ease the feeling. Don't have a lot of food or caffeinated beverages before you race. Drink water, juice or Gatorade to ensure you're hydrated. Don't look directly at the next turn while your driving and don't focus on the kart in front of you. Look out far enough that your focusing on the second or third turn ahead. If you find you are getting mezmerized by the track slow down a little and look at the opposite end of the building. Once you have your bearings get back into the gas.

We are seeing a lot of tire squeal again. Remember smooth is fast!!

Lori and I look forward to seeing you here this fall!
