Heck yeah, way to take Peppy's advice!
Holy Smokes!: Crash Causes Go-Kart To Perform Midair Flip

This is a very short but very exciting video of two go-karters going for gold when a collision causes one of them to smack a wall and perform an unexpected airborne flip with a twist. I like how they had their leg extended the whole time — that’s how you earn bonus style points. Also, I can see now while they put roll bars on go-karts, because that kid looks like he just got hit by a blue shell.

Thanks to JustA, who agrees this is an almost sure-fire strategy for securing last place in a race.
