Benefit #1: Brain Stimulation

Although most physical activities stimulate the brain, go karting in Toronto’s leading indoor raceway has a little bit more to give with its F1 style raceway. The experience is more realistic and more exhilarating than that of others.

Decision-making.

Racing demands a driver’s sound decision making ability by allowing the driver to create plans on how to finish ahead of the others. A good race driver would first and foremost assess the road he will have to trek, anticipating difficulties in some sections of the racetrack and formulating plans to ease through those. He will have to foresee that other racers are creating the same plans. How he will manage to zip away when a sharp turn bottlenecks, will really depend on what available options he has at that exact moment. He may take the turn freely without trouble if he is well ahead of the pack when he reaches the obstacle, or he may be sandwiched between aggressive drivers. That is where he will have to utilize his sound decision making skills taking into consideration the strength of his vehicle and weighing out its limitations.

Practice makes perfect,

as the saying goes. Trials and errors are analyzed and plans are modified to establish a course of action that works to attain objectives. It is common knowledge that many of our famous Nascar and Formula One or Honda Indy superstars started their careers zipping around the race track on a go kart. 

Reflexes

are put to the test when un-anticipated events happen during the race. That sends signals to the brain to heighten all the necessary senses and sharpen the driver’s reflexes. One factor that should be emphasized here as well, should be control over these reflexes. By definition, reflexes are nearly instantaneous, involuntary movement in response to a stimulus. It is done without thinking and automatically happens as a reaction. Some reflexes could be beneficial to you, some might not.  Learn how to control these reflexes.

Benefit #2: Mastery of the Controls of a Toronto Go Kart

As the great Bruce Lee once said, in order to effectively use your weapon, you should become one with it. Well, there are no weapons in racing. But studying your go kart, its strengths and its limitations and compensating with it allows you to use it to its optimum potential. Humans are the most adaptable animals. We easily learn to adjust to the changing surroundings and the corresponding changes in its demands. That is why if there is a need to adjust to conform with the controls of the electric go kart, we can easily do just that. Thus, mastery of the controls is achieved in no time.

 

Healthy Competition | Benefit of Toronto Go Karting | 647-496-5838

Benefit #3: Fosters Healthy Competition

Racing is interactive and fun; and if used by companies as a team building tool, it creates camaraderie and team work among workers through healthy competition. That strengthens working relationships and stimulates workplace cooperation, making it easier for them achieve a singular objective.

 

Adrenaline-Rush | Benefit of Toronto Go Karting | 647-496-5838

Benefit #4: Adrenaline Rush for A Healthier You

Physical activity, in moderate amounts, facilitates the release of Adrenaline, sometimes referred to as the super human hormone. It positively affects the body by increasing blood flow into the tissues and brain during the thrill of a race. That is why a driver feels a sudden flushing, a gush of heat flooding the whole body which leads to a sharper mind and a stronger heart. The feeling of heat is caused by the increased blood supply into the tissues as the blood vessels react to the Adrenaline hormone by dilating allowing more blood to pass through. Whoah! Too technical there! But you get the drift, right?

Family Bonding | Benefit of Toronto Go Karting | 647-496-5838

Benefit #5: Builds Bonds Between Peers, Co-Workers or Family

The human body responds well to a stimulus that originates from someone whom he or she is bonded with. As mentioned earlier, that sense of belongingness and improved perception of self-worth develops into a sense of openness towards that other person. If you are a very busy father who barely has the time to spend with your kids, go karting is a perfect tool to re-establish that trusting relationship and encourage re-building of negative perceptions between you and your family member.

One reader once attested to the effectiveness of go karting as a tool to rebuild his relationship with his son. Not only did it open his son’s eyes to the fact that the father genuinely loves him. But it also enlightened the father of his shortcomings. Melodramatic huh? Before we received that comment, all of these things were just words that occupied our blog space. But then upon knowing that there was at least one, in the billions of people around the world, who was moved by our words and had went through a positive change in his life, writing writing suddenly had a purpose, a responsibility, almost like a movement.
