Alex Zanardi is such a champion, who is much more than just from his racing.
Sure, he’s raced in Formula 1. He’s won the CART series title two years in a row. He’s raced touring cars and won the gold medal in the 2012 Paralympic Games after losing his legs in a horrible crash in 2001. Still, Zanardi is much more than that.
A few years ago, I found myself attracted to competition karting, not only because of the amount of seat time that you can get, but because of the types of people who make up the sport.
Formula E. Home of the all electric formula car racing series, and all the ex-Formula 1 driving talent that you can get your hands on. The first race is coming in September, and so I’ve been doing a bit to find more information about the cars.
Big Stock Honda engine on the stand. My little World Formula engine on the ground. :P
So finally I got around to writing the first project log of the year for the World Formula karts. It’s been a busy first few weeks, which is why it’s taken me so long.
Here is some in car footage from the Chase Race 1952 Hudson Hornet competing in the 24 Hours of LeMons event held at The Ridge Motorsports Park on July 20 and 21, 2013. This car is incredibly fun to drive and was very warmly received by the LeMons judges and competitors. Later in the week I’ll have a more detailed post, with pictures and more videos.
Long story short: we won! The Hudson won the top prize in LeMons, the Index of Effluency.
