The Clerk Is Ahead Going Into The Stretch
YEARS of defensive driving in Boston traffic didnt prepare Cathleen Merritt for an afternoon with her co-workers at an indoor kart track. When her boss, Arthur Weiss, a dentist in Brookline, Mass., announced a daylong retreat for his staff at a track called F1 Boston, she wasnt all that surprised. Dr. Weiss likes to encourage team spirit, and previous outings had included rafting and horseback riding. But she wasnt sure what to expect when her colleagues competitive spirits were tested. The day started with conventional business training meetings -- on communication, conflicts and the like -- in F1s conference rooms, which have the long tables and comfortable chairs typical of hotel conference centers. Then the 11 women and two men from Dr. Weisss practice, the Center for Pediatric Dentistry, put on red racing coveralls and helmets, climbed into racing karts and took to the track to race against each other..

Fast, Furious, Scary. Its Not a Go-Kart.
SPEED is a relative thing. In a compact car, 60 miles an hour seems pretty fast. In a Rolls-Royce, it feels like driveway speed. In a go-kart, with your rear end a couple of inches off the pavement, it feels like a death wish. If this sounds enticing, then the Rotax RM1 is just the mode of transport for you, a new super-kart that can go 80 m.p.h. in an unmodified version, and well over 100 after a little tinkering with the gears. I never joined the 100-mile-an-hour club. Despite my best efforts, and an afternoon of test drives at F1 Outdoors, a karting track in East Bridgewater, Mass., the Rotax and I remained wary of each other. It wanted to go all out. I wanted to get out. We reached a compromise at about 70 m.p.h. on a long straightaway that wasnt nearly long enough for me. It was educational. There are drivers who really want to go 100 m.p.h. into a hairpin turn. I found out that I am not one of them. But I did survive to tell the tale..
