Kiwi F1 driver Liam Lawson has been testing karts in anticipation of racing in the New Zealand Karting Grand Prix.
The Red Bull backed driver cut laps in a KZ2 kart at Tokoroa recently to prepare himself for the event at Porter Park Raceway on February 9 to 11.
While he wants to do the race and is testing for it, it all depends on whether he’ll be in New Zealand at the time.
“Every time I come to New Zealand, I race a go kart” he said in his latest video-blog (see below). “(But) I need to test, otherwise I’ll be slow. “
Lawson said he’d not been in a kart for about a year.
“Every time I get back in one of these things, I die. They are so fr*ggin’ hard to drive. I just wanted to do loads of laps. You can do all the training in the world… I did ten laps and I was wasted.”
