Next Up - Indy 500 & NASCAR!
Wow! My second post for the day...
Raikkonen, Schumacker and Montoya heir apparents
There are two teenagers who are slowly but surely gaining recognition in the field of karting. They are Michele Bumgarner and Matteo Guidicelli. They were under the radar up to about a couple of years ago when they began winning in the races they entered, both local and international. (It also doesn't hurt that they are both tall and good-looking.) Despite being only half-Filipino in lineage (her father is American, his is Italian), they are united in their goal to put the country back on the map for something other than dubious achievements. What is interesting is that a woman driver is succeeding in a sport long-dominated by men. (Another Filipina making waves in the circuit is Gaby dela Merced.) The Philippine Olympic Committee and Games and Amusements Board should take stock of that and pledge their all-out support in their upcoming competitions. We just might have two legitimate shots at Formula One racing this time around and F1 supremacy may no longer be a pipe dream.
