#KEEPKARTING
Just as it happened with the issue of Vroom International in May 2002, when the manufacturers formed a cartel to face the proposals from the Cik Fia, intending to abolish the 2-stroke engine for pollution problems and start a new course with the 4-stroke. Or when the national movement well represented by the "Angry Kart Driver" and well coordinated by several regional representatives managed, in 2003, to defenestrate the entire federal council.
Passages that Vroom wanted to highlight because they are fundamental in the history of karting. So even on this dramatic occasion with the pandemic that shocked our planet, it would have been impossible to represent this unimaginable moment with a set photo and nothing short of taken for granted: such as a helmet with a mask as a symbol of the drama created by Coronavirus. Our hashtag reflects, and it cannot be otherwise, that of every kart driver in the world: racing in karts at any cost, even in dark moments like this.
The same input always comes from the viscera of a kart driver: to win the challenge with himself. And even the Coronavirus has certainly not eradicated this truth, the kart driver never gives up, it is in his nature. Of course, the suffering he is experiencing because he cannot give vent to this passion is huge. It is there that paws to get back on track as soon as possible and devour kilometers of hot asphalt, like the one that will await him in the height of summer. Waiting like a slalomist just before throwing himself between the stakes of his heats, so too the kartist mimics the trajectories of the track in his imagination, and want to be found ready to aim for the maximum objective.
Here's why the cover of this special issue bears witness of the difficult moment in the life of all the inhabitants of the Earth: Vroom leaves a mark again in its path that follows the history of the past thirty years with a cartoon made once again by the genius of Paul Dorin's pencil, so as not to forget what we have experienced and, at the same time, to give a message of strength from our sector that does not give up even in front of an enemy so perfidious and sneaky that has caught us, alas, unprepared and decimated. Karting is our passion and it certainly will not be Coronavirus to have us drop it; on the contrary, we will be more charged up as soon as the evil is defeated and all this will remain an indelible bad memory.
I take this opportunity to thank the Vroom team that has been able to create a magazine that is up to doing the job in this situation, demonstrating that this newspaper has always been able to give its contribution in the face of every type of difficulty for this incredible motor sport that has always lived the day, but it lives.
