Published: Saturday, May 27th, 2017

The recent F1 Grand Prix in Spain was the setting for an amazing event involving the small Iberian kart drivers at the wheel of the FA Kart chassis. Promoters of the Fernando Alonso event were the RACC and Genikart.

Nineteen young drivers performed on a track drawn within the starting grid straight of the F1 circuit in Montmelò (Barcelona), driving at the wheels of the karts marked by the unmistakable "FA" logo of the F1 World Champion Fernando Alonso.

The good initiative was sponsored by RACC, Alonso's Karting School and by Marco Genis, Fernando's friend and partner since the days of karting, and was attended by most of the drivers involved in the F1 Grand Prix: Fernando Alonso, Lewis Hamilton, Carlos Sainz, Valtteri Bottas, Sergio Pérez, Stoffel Vandoorne, Esteban Ocon, Lance Stroll, Marcus Ericsson, Pascal Wehrlein and Pedro De la Rosa, supported by the technical manager of  Liberty Media, Ross Brawn as well as the Ferrari Driver Academy Champions, Charles Leclerc, Antonio Fuoco and Giuliano Alesi.
