Casey Stoner's trick kartThu, 19 Apr 2012 00:00:00 -0700
The other day Casey Stoner tweeted this shot of this factory looking kart, which the reigning champion has been customising during the MotoGP downtime between Qatar and Jerez.
Stoner became hooked on karting after taking part in the ice-race at the Ducati/Ferrari Vrooom event in 2009, beating F1 driver Felipe Massa in the process. Not only a hobby, Casey uses karting for training, as the Australian says there are physical benefits as well as to his reflexes. He also said that he has ambitions to do more kart races in the future, to hone his skills on four wheels.
