Footnotes

  • Karting has long been recognised as a gateway to success at the highest levels of international motor sport; many past Formula 1 World Champions started their careers in karts, as did the current title holder, Lewis Hamilton. This Finnkart was driven during 1982 by Finland's twice Formula 1 World Champion, Mika Häkkinen. Born in 1968, Häkkinen first raced karts when he was only five years old and won his first race in 1975. In 1981 he claimed his first major title: the Finnish Karting Championship (85cc Formula Mini Series) and moved on to the Formula Nordic 100cc class for 1983. He won that championship in his debut season and dominated the class for the next few years before moving on to Formula Ford in 1987, Formula 3 in 1989 and Formula 1 in 1991.

    In 1982 Mika contested the Ronnie Peterson Memorial Championship and Finnish Karting Championship (Formula Mini Series) with this Finnkart, winning the former and finishing 2nd in the latter. It has not been driven since 1983. The Kart was sold by Finnkart's proprietor, Petri Pirkola, who supplied it new to Mika back in the early 1980s. Offered with Mika's signed certificate of authenticity, it represents a rare opportunity for collectors to acquire a significant piece of this great Formula 1 Champion's personal history.
