How do I drift when go-kart racing?

Some friends took me go-kart racing like two or three times, and I saw this one guy who works there racing on the tracks by himself. He was drifting and it looked so cool. When I was racing, I brake really hard when I turn and then accelerate. I want to learn how to drift because it’s faster. Any tips?

Drifting is not faster unless the track is slippery.
If there’s a lot of rubber you can’t drift and be fast.
It also cannot be done with any kind of kart, it needs some good low end to do it.
Rotax for example is no good for that.
What you do is that you brake on the limit for a corner as usual and as you reach the end of the braking zone and the turn in point just pinch the brakes a little harder to get the kart a little sideways.
Then get on the throttle.
From that point on you control the line in the corner with the throttle and not the steering wheel.
You’re drifting.
You slowly lessen the pressure on the gas pedal to tighten the line up to the apex and increase the pressure after that to get the exit.
You can also stab the throttle pedal hard time after time to give short burst of big power that will keep the drift going.
You would do that if the track was a bit grippier.
If it’s difficult to master you may want to widen the rear track of the kart, and also increase the grip at the front, for example by dialing in some more caster.
A wide rear will make for a much more predictable and controllable chassis and a grippy front end will help keep the drift, otherwise at any point you can lose the front mid corner and understeer will kill the drift.
Also a narrow kart in the rear will snap out of control violently.
To practice all this it’s best to do it on a slippery surface until you master it.
Old style 100cc engines and 125cc TAG IAME engines like the Leopard and Easykart are fine for drifting.
The high reving old school stuff does the trick.
Rotax, ROK, and the KF engines are not really good for drifting, they suffer at the low end.
Needless to say that shortening the gearing will help a lot!
