complete newbie to owning a kart and i can honestly say that there is far too much maths and theory involved in this topic.

the way that i see it, there is no set rule for entering a corner, all corners are different and require different driving lines and rules.

for instance, a hairpin leading on to a straight i would brake hard, deep into the outside of the corner, turn sharp and accelerate hard. ‘hard in, hard out’

alternatively an ‘s’ bend would require a more constant speed, dabbing the brakes softly and floating the accelerator pedal gently through the corner. ‘easy in, easy out’ ???
