Well, I survived the go-karting. Actually enjoyed it a lot, although I still ache from it. I managed 35 laps out of 50 before my arms fell off, or as good as. What I was happy with was that I was in control throughout, and was able on occasion to get up a good rate of speed. My cornering sucked though, just seemed to struggle with gettting the line right. It did make me feel more positive about the concept of driving, as that sense of being in control is important. And on real roads you don’t really have a racing line.
