In the early morning hours of February 10th, CBC Radio One broadcast a documentary from RTÉ Radio 1, Ireland’s National Public Service Broadcaster, called “Dad’s, Lad’s and Nicole”. It’s about go-karting, and follows Nicole Coffey from Dublin, 13 years old & aiming to become a F1 driver some day. It’s an interesting look into karting, and it sounds like race days in Ireland are much the same as race days here in Canada – anything can happen!
The broadcast is available from the RTÉ Radio 1 Documentary on One website, as a podcast via iTunes or from SoundCloud. Whether you’re a veteran karter, occasional driver, or even if you’re still just thinking about getting into the excitement, this documentary provides a fascinating glimpse into what kart racing, and race days, are all about – give it a listen!
