Remember that little blog item I had a week or so ago about Michael Schumacher going to Las Vegas to race in this weekend’s Superkarts! USA Supernationals?
Well, he’s not alone. There’s a real gathering of the F1 clan in Vegas to either race themselves or cheer Michael (or their friends) on.
Nelson Piquet Jr. is there. (Oops, I guess I should say "former F1 driver," or "ex-F1 driver," or "disgraced F1 driver. . . ) Anyway, Sebastien Buemi is there. Sebastien Vettel has been spotted in the paddock (or so my spies tell me) and Felipe Massa is expected to arrive shortly. Indy car star Raphael Matos is also on hand.
Rob Howden of Kitchener is doing the announcing. If you want to follow the action all weekend, you can keep up at www.ekartingnews.com/live, which will be carrying live audio broadcasting all weekend.
Schumacher arrived in Vegas this morning and is scheduled to go out for his first practice session later today.
