gokart racing

Well, it was the first time for me going crazy on those karts. Go-kart racing seems to be a fun but expensive sport. It is 50 Yuan for 8 minutes of pure adrenaline. I have to say… definitely worth it! Although I wouldn’t go there a second time (at least not on that track), but I really enjoyed it. We drove a Yamaha K-9 with a top speed of 80 km/h, the real speed you get with all those corners is probably maximum 60km/h. But sitting all low on those karts, it feels so fast!

Frank, Shen Xiao and me, along with some friends of Frank had a great time racing on the track. We were twice on the track, 16 minutes in total, but after that, we were wasted. For 100 Yuan each, we got a real nice butt massage in front of a high end ventilator and next to incredible loud speakers making “brrrooooooom” all the time. And sitting in a tumble-drier which starts rolling whenever you get in a curve. Well, you know what I mean. My hands were shaking after every race from the uneven road. If you can’t imagine what I am talking about, go race a little for yourself. Then you will know what I mean. Anyway, a friend of Frank shot a video and I just cut it together for you to enjoy. Btw, I’m the dude in red t-shirt, Frank is in a black addidas shirt with 3 white stripes and Shen Xiao wears a green t-shirt. Have fun:
