How to read your kart tyres

In this episode we look at how you can best read your karting tyres.

Now we know that one of the biggest expenses when it comes to kart racing is tyres. The softer compounds generally are built for performance over longevity, so identifying when they are past their use by date or when they are overheating can help your on track performance.

Also for newcomers, you can distinguish when your driver is driving off the racing line with the pick up they are generating.

I hope this helps drivers and mechanics out with knowing what to look for the next time they are out at the race track.
