Go-Kart Racing: A Female Perspective
October 21st, 2008 posted by Jenny Poust
Aside from Gone In 60 Seconds and The Fast and the Furious, the whole “need for speed” thing has never really appealed to me. So when a bunch of us from the office went to Lehigh Valley Grand Prix to race some go-karts, I was willing to try it (since I had never driven a go kart before), but I wasn’t jumping up and down in excitement.
After we got suited up for safety, we entered the “arena” and got into our assigned carts. Once I got used to my knees being scrunched up in what I considered to be an unnatural position, I took off like a bullet! Vrrrrroooommmmmmm!
After I completed my first lap, I caught a glimpse of my lap time along with the times of everyone else on this huge scoreboard. So my goal became to have a faster lap time than at least one of the three guys in our group. As hard as I tried, I just couldn’t beat any of the guys … but I was the fastest of the four girls who were racing. 😉
So to all the men and ladies out there, have you tried out Lehigh Valley Grand Prix yet? If not, would you be willing to give it a shot?
