Tonight, Discovery Channel will air the second episode of the new reality series Star Racer. More real than most reality shows, Star Racer pits racers against one another with the prize being a chance to begin a dream career.
Take a look at pretty much any open wheel racer world wide and you’ll see that they’ve gotten their start in Karting. With this in mind, producers have chosen to pit 8 top Karters against 8 racers from other disciplines. Of course the selection process is filled with trash talking, especially from The Others. As can be expected, bike and drag racers seem to think that karts are toys. Unfortunately, some of the karters exhibited some typical, spoiled kid attitudes and their parents weren’t much better.
The show is a slick package that is
kilometers miles better than the usual Canadian docucrap. The overall winner scores a fully sponsored ride in the 2007 Star Mazda series after being judged by the likes of Paul Tracy, Derek Daly and Katherine Legge. Any bets on PT dropping the gloves with a smart mouthed contestant?
