Of course, it will be in karts!

Still, for any Michael Schumacher fan in and around America’s Sin City, the news deserves an exclamation point or two. Or three!

Sorry, I’m still trying to shake off the snark I felt obliged to infuse to the latest Nelson Piquet news .

The seven-time Formula 1 champ will be in Vegas in less than two weeks for a SKUSA Nationals event:

Seven-time World Formula One Champion Michael Schumacher will be a part of the Tony Kart Factory team line-up at next weekend’s (November 18-22) SKUSA Nationals in Las Vegas.

Schumacher will be competing in the Super Pro (KZ2) category, six-speed gearbox 125cc engine, in the 13th Annual SKUSA Nationals that will take place in front of the Hotel Rio in the centre of Las Vegas.


Schumacher will be joined in the line-up for Tony Kart Racing Team in the Super Pro (KZ2) category by 2007 winner and multiple world champion Italian Marco Ardigò and Englishman Gary Catt.

Catt boasts several prestigious international titles, such as the victory of the Italian Open Master, the victory of the Margutti Trophy and of the Winter Cup. He has been also vice European and World Champion.

I believe I just heard Todd checking airline websites for cheap fares to Vegas. Don’t forget to catch Cirque du Soleil while you’re there!
