We like the Fiat 500 Abarth. We like it more when it takes advantage of its short track and hits a go-kart track. We like it best when it runs a go-kart track for charity.

This is Kart 2 Kart outside of Detroit, where we went head-to-head with the head honchos of Audi's Quattro GmbH and won/lost.

Kart2Kart will also be site of a drawing for this very 500 Abarth or $22,000 in cash. It's a charity auction for Animal Aid, a non-profit, volunteer-based organization supporting local animal charities and homes. Tickets are $20 and the drawing for the car/cash is in August.


Get your tickets at MyAnimalAid.org or at Kart2Kart at 42705 Van Dyke Ave. Sterling Heights, MI 48314. Then rip this Abarth around the track again and maybe use a bit more handbrake on that last hairpin.
