Season 2008 - Schumacher sets up Karting team

Season 2008 - Schumacher sets up Karting team
Eurosport - Mon, 04 Feb 17:52:00 2008
Michael Schumacher has taken his first steps into the world of team management by setting up his own go-kart team to compete in the German championship.

The seven-time Formula One World Champion, who rejected an offer to run Ferrari's Formula One operation, will run the team with his friends and business partners Peter Kaiser and Thomas Munchov, whose names contribute to the team's identity of KMS Racing.

"I still drive karts with a passion because I grew up with them," The 39-year-old German told Italian sports daily Gazzetta dello Sport. "I owe everything to karting and I never gave it up.

"When I was still a boy, and Formula One was still very far away, I thought that one day I would have worked in karting.

"A team together with my friends, that's exactly what I had imagined."

As if the team's star factor needed any boosting, two-time world rally champion Carlos Sainz will be a regular presence in their awning as his 13-year-old son Carlos Jr will be one of the drivers.

My respect for the man just keeps growing. So great to see somebody actually enjoying their sport. I hope that Alonso is watching...
