Michael Schumacher may not have made an F1 comeback but he will return to racing this year at the wheel of a kart.
Schumacher confirmed last month he was ready to return to racing after recovering from the neck injury that kept him away from an F1 return in the European Grand Prix.
According to the event’s website:
The former Ferrari F1 driver will compete in the SuperPro category against the top 125cc drivers from North America and the world, running with the factory Tony Kart team aboard a Vortex-powered Racer EVR.
The event takes place at the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on November 18th-22nd.
Schumacher’s love of karting is well-known and he often competed in kart races even while racing in F1. In 2001 he raced a young Lewis Hamilton, Nico Rosberg and Vitantonio Liuzzi in the World Karting Championship final.
