There is nothing like the thrill of racing. Since the creation of the wheel, man has competed in the sport in one form or another, just for the adrenaline rush and the glory that comes with “taking it to the limit”.
Karting at Lydd Kart Circuit, offers all the thrills of a fast paced Motor Sport plus a true “in your face” racing experience that cannot be beaten.
Not even the great British weather was going to stop our intrepid team as they took to the skies each contemplating the challenges that lay ahead in the form of 1040m circuit purporting to be the fastest circuit in Kent and one of the fastest in the Country. The track
was purchased in 2010 by ex-racer James Clarke and his sole aim is to make Lydd the “Silverstone of Karting”
Were our 11 brave souls up to the challenge?
Serious contemplation was given to the choice of outfit as wrong sizing could have dire consequences.
After much deliberation our Red Army was ready to take on Kent.
Relaxed in their new kit and with a confident air serious thought was given to driving style.
Remembering the golden rules of karting they hit the track.
– Pick a fast car
– Enter turns slow, exit turns fast
– Be smooth – accelerate and break smoothly
– Plan your drive path as “out in out”
– Limit the sliding in your turns
– Time your passes carefully
– Don’t crash into people
Well here is our illustrious team quite relaxed with their achievements – can’t say that about the footwear!!!
A good time had by all……
