Fall is here and we just had a great week at the fair. Thanks to all of you who stopped by and said hello or entered for a free race.
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!
