Posted by: Xavier Kwan onApril 14th, 2016


Formula One memorabilia is very sought after property for Formula One fans. Recently, one of Michael Schumacher’s F1 cars went up for auction. Now, you can own a piece of another legend of the sport, the Flying Finn himself, Mika Hakkinen.

Bonhams in Monaco will be putting up Mika’s childhood go kart, the one which he raced in 1982 in the Finnish Karting Championship and the Ronnie Peterson Memorial Championship. Mika finished second in the Finnish Karting Championship and took first place in the Ronnie Peterson race in this kart. The kart hasn’t been used since 1983.

It is expected that this 85cc kart will be authenticated and signed by Hakkinen, and should bring in between $11,000 and $23,000
