I'd never heard of them. My karting career began by paying five dollars for ten minutes of track time in a 5 horsepower, 25 mile per hour fun kart at tiny, tourist-driven venues during our family vacations. We stopped at go kart tracks from Virginia to Utah. Any track, any time. It wasn't real racing, but it was the only racing I had.

Toronto IndyCar postscript
by Brian Carroccio
Whenever watching a motor race, I almost always keep a notepad handy. And the item at the top of the page earmarked for this weekend's Honda Indy Toronto was a simple "It’s Helio's World.” This I imagine was transcribed the moment Helio Castroneves pulled off a breathtaking pass from the third starting spot on teammate and pole sitter Simon Pagenaud at the drop of the green flag.
