Karaskas gets back in har­ness

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

Sea­soned sin­gle-seater racer Dave Karaskas has gone back 34 years to race in For­mula Ford 2000 for the sec­ond time, now with a Crossle 51F in the URS Clas­sic cat­e­gory.

Karaskas first raced in the class in 1982 when his ri­vals in­cluded Ayr­ton Senna. Since then he has raced in cars as di­verse as an His­toric F1 Ar­rows to an MG Mid­get.

“I wanted to get back to sin­gle-seaters,” said Karaskas, who has re­cently re­cov­ered from a snapped Achilles ten­don. “This is the car that Arnie Black raced in the 1982 Euro­pean Cham­pi­onship and more re­cently was raced by James Ledamun.”
