There's still room for 2-4 more regulars. C'mon people, it's a ton of fun and will seriously help you improve your driving skills. A lot of what you learn and practise on the kart track can be directly transferred to other forms of racing - solo, autocross, or door-to-door racing. Skills include: shifting weight to maximize grip, threshold braking, using all four of your tires' available grip, adapting to understeer/oversteer (depending on which kart you get) and going fast with either condition, line selection, passing maneuvers, etc. Oh yeah, and the best part is that it's a ton of fun! :D

P.S. there's no penalty or extra fee for signing up as a "regular" league member, but not showing up to all the events. We'll just reserve a spot for you, that's all. :)

For myself, the best benefit from the speedworld league was honing in my mental game. Prior to the league, I didn't fully understand what state of mind I needed to be in in order to perform well. I knew the spectrum ranged from; "pumping yourself up" (like a boxer before going in the ring) to a "state of meditation" to get in the zone. After some trial and error, everyting from screaming and swearing at every turn to day dreaming I found something that worked for me. The longer seat time (~10min vs 1min autox runs) at speedworld really helped me hone in on it. As a result, I now know ahead of time what I need to do in order to prepare myself for the next auto-x run, the biggest benefit was seeing improved consistancy in performance.
