10 THINGS TO CHECK... AFTER A DAY ON THE TRACK WITH A KART

INTRODUCTION

Racing on a track is the essence of go-karting. Beds and straights are where you make all the effort (organisational, physical and in terms of cost) that all enthusiasts face to try and put their passion into practice. However, different from many other sports, a shower and a change of clothes followed by a little rest after you have finished is not sufficient: karts need a little more care to ensure everything is in order for the next race and that they are not worn out or damaged for a lack of attention. For some people, these activities at the end are a real hassle. For others, it is part and parcel of the fun. In any case ... it has to be done. In 10 steps.

1 EMPTY THE TANK

This is one of the first things you should do when you’re done racing: empty the fuel tank completely, trying to recover whatever blend is left (you can use it again if you’ll be back on track soon). This operation spares plastic components from the “aging”, effect of gasoline (which makes them stiff and dry), especially the rubber line that connects tank and carburetor.

2 MEASURE LEFT OVER BLEND

Place any leftover blend in a graded portable tank, so you’ll know exactly how much you used over the day. Being aware of your fuel consumption allows you to keep track of how many “liters” your engine has covered, so you’ll be able to plan revisions more effectively.
