F1 drivers organise fun kart race

A group of formula one drivers planned to fill the two-week gap between the German and Hungarian grands prix by organising a karting event.

The idea of the two-day races belongs to BMW’s Robert Kubica, who invited many of his rivals to congregate at an Italian kart circuit with 125cc machines.

Among those who intended to join the Pole in Italy were Felipe Massa, Timo Glock, Sebastian Vettel, Nelson Piquet, Tonio Liuzzi and even Michael Schumacher.
