Your best moves & The best you have seen from your visor

Whats been your most proud overtaking/defending move? Whether it be successful or, well, nearly successful but your still proud of it upuntil it went wrong! Whether it be passing OR defending

Also, what has been the most breathtaking move, again good or bad you have seen from underneath your visor?

Last sunday I started a race from 5th, and after the 1st corner the guy who started 6th was in the lead. He'd had an average kind of start but an outstanding 1st corner. He passed everyone around the outside :O

My best overtaking manouver was when I came out of a flat out right after a long straight at sandown park racing in the mounthly in-kart championship when I saw a racer trying to pass another car and I took the pair of them.
In that meeting their was a long staright after wards but I did the same move in monsoon conditions in November on slicks when I out braked them in to another pair going into the harpin just after the the same corner in my first wet race.


I also did a good move at the start after a long staright and you brake into the first corner and I always go round the out side and brake so late I'm still braking turning into the corner and took 6 cars by going round the outside.

Another good move was when I took a wide line into a harpin and then took a sharp line out and passed 2 cars by the before the line.

Two weeks ago in the September meeting at Kimbolton. i started 15th. and by the time i came out of the willows i was 8th. Huge pile up at the first corner, best race of that day.

Also a move that im proud of is, a last minute dive past someone just before a bus stop.

I'm too busy looking where I'm going to notice anyone else. I'd advise the rest of you to do the same and there might be fewer accidents

Seriously, if i can be for a sec, lol...... Its always good to be aware of what is going on around you, ive seen so many guys just watch the front of their nosecone and then when someone spins in front of them they just crash straight into them. And like Speedy says u gotta be able to be aware of those low flying karts ahead

Today in my Heats at Sandown I had to wins out of 3 races and nearly won the final.
I went around the outside around of a guy in in the harpin and went around loads of drivers especially around flat out corners.
The champagne tastes nice as well.

At corners like Bruno Ferrari chicane at Shenington and the first corner at Llandow it is sometime possible to pass by shooting up the inside of the driver in front if he tries to get a good exit by keeping right before the tight hairpin left. You can mess up his exit by putting yourself right on an early apex. Both your exits are slow but you have the advantage. If your a Schumacher type of driver you can push him off the track. Its usually less experienced driver who make the mistake of keeping too far right with someone behind them.

Potentialy a good move, but changed very quickly!! Here's how it went!

I was in 3rd and going down the fastest straight in to turn one i could see a 'Stars Of Tomorrow' racer lunge down the inside of Luke Branch on the brakes, Luke turned in giving the driver enough room to go side by side however he appeared to clip the curb or something which unsettled the kart and according to Luke the other drivers kart just went straight on (driver error or not, i dont know and its not in my right to say) but the two collided and the other kart mounted Luke's in a big way, climbing over his side wheels on to the back of the kart and doing about two pirrorettes actually ON his kart! Left rubber marks on Luke's seat, bent his spart plug, dented the radiator, pulled the exhaust off, white smoke everywhere, horrific noise as you can imagine when the exhaust comes off. Thankfully neither driver was injured, the other kart then fell off Lukes and carried on and Branch pulled off.

Was pretty eye catching! The amount of smoke was incredible too, and ive never seen a kart give another a piggy back before!!!

At the first corner at rye house i went round the outside of about 6 karts because thye all stuck to the inside and i went to the outside and managed to carry lots of spped through the corner. It only works on the first lap though and becareful when you try to get back onto the racing line.

I userly get a good start, swing to the outside and brake as late as I can, then get back on it as quick as possible in turn 1 and userly make up a few postions.
It pays off to be on the limit on the first lap.

If i ever have any move like that going through my mind though i make sure i do plenty of weaving on the warm up lap and often hold the brake and throttle at the same time to get some heat in the pads and disk, a big no no i know. I've actually heard of people though that race in the Mini Max class that claim to keep flat on the throttle and just press on the brake though the corners...........

I'm sure that can't be good for the kart?
