It's not something I like to shout in front of 50,000 people, but I weigh 88 kgs.

It all depends on kart setup. If I get a kart that works for my driving style, I can bring it down to low 28s even now. I prefer a sweet handling Honda to a savage Vanguard.

How do you choose between a Vanguard and a Honda?

Bit of Off-topic

I was thinking of going there over the weekend with friends, hence I needed to know what are the charges at the Hakone Go-Kart? Also does one need to have driving experience or is it open for all?

Default Re: Hakone Go Kart Track, Powai - Your fastest lap timing

I have some bad news. Apparently the track in Powai is going to be shifted to make way for a building. The new track will be near Olympia somewhere and I'm almost sure it wont be good enough without the elevation changes
