Madrid play­ers take to gokarts, re­ceive cars from spon­sor

Malta Independent - - SPORT -

Real Madrid play­ers changed into auto rac­ing suits for a go-kart race on Fri­day, then drove home ex­pen­sive cars. Cap­tain Ser­gio Ramos won on the track and for his ride home, se­lected an Audi S8 Plus es­ti­mated to cost 160,000 eu­ros ($177,000). Audi pro­moted the kart race. Span­ish news­pa­per Marca said Audi made its Q7 model avail­able to all play­ers, but those se­lect­ing to keep their cars after the sea­son — at a 30 per­cent dis­count — could pick their own mod­els. Marca said Cris­tiano Ron­aldo and coach Zine­dine Zi­dane could pick their own cars with­out hav­ing to buy them after the sea­son. Ron­aldo, who was among sev­eral play­ers who did not par­tic­i­pate in the kart race, se­lected the Audi RS 6 Per­for­mance, which costs about 145,000 eu­ros. Zi­dane picked a sim­i­lar model. Barcelona play­ers re­ceived their cars from Audi in a sim­i­lar event last week.
