Brazil's "Kart Mini" - Scott Elkes - 04-05-2017

The "Kart Mini" is a kart brand that brothers Wilson and Emerson Fittipaldi along with a third partner started in the 1960s.

Ad from the early 1970s...

A Kart Mini restored, recreated to look like Emerson's 1968 Brazil National Championship kart and was powered by a Mc-75. Just returning to the pit from a track run on a television production special. Do you think the two time F1 World Champion and Indy 500 Champion had fun?

I came across this picture while looking for the Brazilian manufactured engines. If memory serves me, the 1968 National Championship kart.
