Michael Schumacher set for racing return

1 Mins read

After a successful time in Beijing at the Race of Champions, Michael Schumacher is set to take part in the Superkarts! USA SuperNationals, due to take part in Las Vegas next week.

The seven-time Formula One world champion will compete in the 125cc SuperPro category running with the Tony Kart factory team aboard a Vortex-powered Racer EVR.

“Having Michael on the grid for this year’s SuperNationals is such an exciting addition for everyone on the SKUSA staff,” SKUSA CEO Tom Kutscher told eKartingNews.com.

“The simple fact that he contacted us to be part of the race is huge! We’ve had the opportunity to watch some big name drivers run with us in the past, but there is no comparison with Michael. He’s widely considered the finest driver in the history of the sport, and it will be an honor to have him take the green in Las Vegas. This is going to fire this year’s race up to a whole new level!”

Schumacher is no stranger to karts having started his racing career at his parents track in Kerpin, Germany, before going on to win a handful of championships.

Since then Schumacher has continued to use karting as a way to keep sharp, making occasional returns to official competitions, winning the Formula A event at the Monaco Karting Cup in 1996.
