Pretty cool. From his words it seems he totally gets this karting thing.
“The Spaniard now works as a professional musician under the stage name Squire, but has been testing karts to fill time during the COVID-19 pandemic, which has left him unable to tour or perform at festivals.”
He’s a rock star and a race driver. Double threat!
“I’ve been testing go-karts and having sensations that I didn’t feel for a very long time," he said… "When I started racing, I was smiling inside the helmet and it was just driving for pure love… "Now when I’m back on a go-kart, I have the same feelings and I thought, ‘Why shouldn’t I be back in a situation where I’m competitive and I feel like inspiration back to my life?
I for one am thrilled to see someone decide to go “backwards”, particularly a Euro. I’d love to see more pro car drivers competing alongside their more specialized pro kart colleagues. I see this as a great way for car guys to sharpen their game. Not to mention this would be helpful to kart pros as they’d likely get noticed more, too.
Absolutely. Nice to see
Nice one TJ, shared it to the KP facebook page. I’ll repeat here what I said on FB
Pro drivers “starting” in karts is a worn-out story…continuing to race them, well now you’ve got our attention.
Honestly I think this is huge for karting. Someone going back into karting, not as a ladder but as its own form of competition? unheard of. Its one thing for Norris to go out karting for a youtube video here and than, its another for someone to commit to karting. I totally get his feeling of not wanting to here a word about racing, I cant imagine making it that close, just to fall a little short. Im surprised he didnt have opportunities in other forms of motorpsorts.
Maybe his rock band is successful and he can now race whatever he wants and chooses a kart!
