KartQuest at MAEPS is now both my favorite and most tragic place for karting, more on this later.
I have been on go-kart less than a handful of occasions in my life. My very first experience was probably in Genting, which did not exactly leave me at all impressed. The karts were super slow and you could floor the accelerator all the way without spinning out or worried about hitting anything. That was some ten years ago.
hello my name is KY, I’m a karting hero
About 2-3 years ago, I went karting with Gareth and got to know Yee Hou at ELITE track. It was fun and competitive, but they were a little too strict and so we somehow did not do it again.
Then we discovered KartQuest, and already been there twice this month.
A total of 10 of us went the first time, with Jaclyn not driving cos it was “too hot” and she wasn’t prepared. I, however, brought my own helmet, wore long sleeve, proper shoes and all. We had a blast, and I also ended up with a huge blister on my right palm after 2 x 10 minute session of intense karting (RM 20 per session). We went all out speeding.
Last Sunday, Terence, Horng, Rachel, Kerol, Jaclyn, Eric, and I went there again. This time around I was a bit less prepared, no long sleeves, no proper shoes, and I was only wearing shorts. It turned out to be huge loads of fun, I think the guys gave us more than 10 mins per session.
Instead of going all out in speed, we were more towards nudging each other and trying to fish tail the person in front of us. There was quite a lot of almost unintentional accidents, and Horng even broke the tyre wall and created new route by himself.
Blackberry Bold the smartly escaped. meet the new N86 shattered edition
I ended up being the villain of the day by banging everyone else on the track, it was just so addictive and so fun!
But karma has a way of biting you back. I made the mistake of keeping the phones in my pocket while on the track.
They fell, and the Nokia N86 (where majority of the photos on this blog were taken with) probably got rolled over a couple times.
Amazingly, both phones still works 100%.
Who wants to go karting again maybe this weekend!?
