Leaning Into The Curve

When you feel the need to speed, leaning into the curve gives you the extra edge in a race. Just ask Roscoe how low you can go.

Getting low on the turn - leaning into the curve
Getting low on the turn

The tail tells the tale—Roscoe propels around the yard at maximum velocity. But how can you make quick turns on the racetrack? Any motorcyclist will tell you the critical need for leaning into the curve. Roscoe may have grass stains on the side of his legs, but he can zoom like no one else.

    Always a need to air things out! If only you could match Roscoe P and Typhoon in a STRAIGHT race to see who’s the zommiest! Mmmmmm

      With some age on him now, Typhoon has applied another lesson learned from Queen Natasha the Evil. When he was younger, QNTE would get him racing about the yard and then stand in the center of the yard yelling at him to go faster. She exerted minimal energy and burned off his youthful exuberance.

      Now he does the same to Roscoe.

      P.S. – Hard for us to remember that the Little Prince is ten years old. Wow.
