…and that you can actually get one of these things, as a regular person! The shifter kart, not the Brazilian Stock Car.
(Again, this is another video that doesn’t have subtitles, but the point still stands.)
Five or so years ago, I found a video about where Rubens Barrichello shows how much faster a shifter kart is than a production car in the dry.
Funny enough, I found myself in a side thread with someone who didn’t want to admit how fast racing karts can be…
Now, I’ve found a video that shows how fast a shifter kart can be compared to a race car in the wet. (In my opinion, Race karts rarely get the respect they deserve with how fast they really are.)
Shifter kart- 1:11.923
Brazilian Stock Car: 1:24.818
Bonus Video with more Rubens. The passion he has for karting is amazing, especially after all of the years after his Formula 1 career. The world needs more people like Rubens.
