Michael Schumacher Sold His Kart Track to Brother Ralf
The news was reported by German newspaper Sport Bild, who revealed however that the name of the kart track will not be changed as a result of the selling. Instead, it will remain “Michael Schumacher Kart and Event Center,” only managed by the 7-time world champion’s younger brother.
“Michael is completely focused on formula one. For this reason he would no longer have had enough time to devote to the kart center. With Ralf, however, at least it (the track) stays in the family,” an insider told the aforementioned source.
While happy to hear Michael is taking his Formula One comeback so seriously, we can’t help but wonder what Ralf’s future plans in motor racing are. Not far from a couple of weeks ago, the youngest of the Schumacher brothers was linked with a return to F1 himself, a report that he is yet to deny.
His purchasing the track may mean that his future (at least in 2010) will rest in the German DTM Series. An F1 return would make him just as busy as his older brother so, being that he bought the track to devote to it, this should mean his days in the Great Circle are over.
Also, it’s worth mentioning that Ralf Schumacher already owns a kart track of his own, in Bispingen.
