Schumacher junior enjoys karting debut
22 April 2008 – Michael Schumacher's nine-year-old son Mick enjoyed his first kart event in Spain. To keep the press away Schumacher's son entered the competition under the name of Mick Betsch. Betsch is Schumacher's wife (Corinna) maide name.
The event was held in Sils, a little town near Girona in the North-East of Spain. Mick was not guided by his father Michael, but by his grandfather Rolf who once guided Michael at the karting tracks around Europe.
Mick Schumacher qualified himself in fifth position and finished the first race in tenth and his second race in eighth position wearing the typical Schumacher helmet but instead of using the recognizable red colours he wore the helmet in blue.
