Power through the left-hander

Don't lose focus, Dunstable's left-hander will hit you right after a steep slope. As you put your foot down to reach the top, make sure you remember what's on the horizon!

Prepare yourself for the left-hander, and nail the manoeuvre by following the steps below:

    1. As you reach the slope, put your foot down on the accelerator.
    2. Keep your kart to the right - be careful not to drift into the middle!
    3. Lightly touch the brakes as the corner approaches.
    4. Turn into the corner and accelerate.
    5. Power out of the corner and remain focused.
    6. Congratulations! You've mastered the left-hander.

Face the hairpin

The Dunstable circuit is full of challenges, but don't let it phase you. This tricky hairpin comes right after you descend a steep slope - so make sure your foot is at the ready and hovering above the brakes!

Straight off the slope, it's time to tackle Dunstable's hairpin:

  1. As you descend, spot your braking point - it's vital!
  2. Hit the brakes, before immediately turning into the apex.
  3. Nail the apex, clipping it as you turn.
  4. Phew, that was fast! You've completed the hairpin.
