LMK Speed Secret – The Hairpin. As you cross the start/finish line, take a traditional racing line full-throttle through the right-hander leading toward the hairpin, positioning yourself just off the barrier on the left side of the track. Brake early, then start to turn in taking a wide entry for a very late apex, aiming for the orange cone at the exit. You should be seeing something like this:
You can carry the brakes into the turn a bit (a technique called trail braking) which will allow you to rotate the kart a little without sacrificing momentum. Midway through the corner you can smoothly get on the gas, but keep your line tightening. At this point, you should be finishing your turn and accelerating towards the orange cone, the one you’ve been watching the whole time.
Now that you’ve got a great exit, continue accelerating towards the left-hander, setting yourself up for a great passing opportunity.
