Alguersuari To Compete In World Karting Series

New rookie F1 driver Jaime Alguersuari has confirmed that he wil be in attendance at the World Karting Championships in September.

Alguersuari, who is just 19, will add this duty to his racing with Scuderia Toro Rosso and in World Series Renault.

He was recruited to the Toro’s after Sebastien Bourdais’ untimely and public exit from the team.  Despite just straightline testing the 2009 car he made a solid debut at the Hungarian Grand Prix.  He will be hoping for more in Valencia, a race staged in his own country.

Not content with 2 race drives and now the karting, he was seen DJ’ing in central Barcelona recently to many thousands who were partying in the streets.

“I will be competing in the KZI World Karting Championship in Sarno, Naples in September,” he told the official F1 website.

“I am only interested in learning and learning to compete against the best. Portimao (the latest World Series round) and Sarno mean the same to me – pitting myself against the best drivers right now.”

In these tough times, it’s good to know he will have many skills!
