Schumacher to karts - NO HOAX!
With the final round of the World FSA Championships at his local Kerpen (Germany) circuit, multiple world F1 Champion Michael Schumacher is rumoured to be returning to karts for a crack at the World Championship decider.
The final round of the FSA World titles is scheduled for October 28, two whole weeks after the final round of the 2001 Formula One World Championships, an event which has been well and truly settled in Ferraris and Schumachers favour, so it doens't interfere with Schumachers passion. Another point of note is that CRG's Tonio Liuzzi looks to have all but wrapped up this years title leaving Tony Kart in the race for promotional honours, Schumachers return would only bolster their appeal.
So what truth is there to this rumour, well more than that of April 1 this year about Schumachers run in a round of the Shifter Kart Championships in the states, we here that there are as many as eight water-cooled Vortex engines being prepared for the World Champ. The world waits...
