Our Gift to You: 11 Corners of Christmas!

On the first day of Christmas my favorite kart track gave to me…driving tips to help me go faster at GoPro Motorplex!

This year, we want to give the gift of speed to our customers. We get the question, “How can I go faster?” a lot throughout the year. 

Although we offer incredibly beneficial driver training within our Rental Kart “Speed Schools,” we thought it would be a nice gift to offer our customers pro driving tips for FREE! 

For the next 11 days, starting tomorrow, Dec. 14, we will post a driving tip per day to our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts. Each day’s tip will feature one of the 11 different corners that form our circuit. 

All 11 driving tips are written below. However, exclusive GoPro video demonstration of each tip can only be found by following us on social media: Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

We wish all of our customers a safe and happy holiday season!
