KARTING IS A GO: Michael Schumacher will return to karting in 2013.

MUNICH, Germany - Michael Schumacher, recently re-retired from Formula 1, will return to his karting roots in 2013.

In the days after the seven-times World champion's last GP late in 2012, we reported that the 44-year-old had signed up to be a test driver for the Italian kart-maker Tony Kart.

Spain's El Mundo Deportivo newspaper reports that the Great German will in fact be racing in 2013.

NEW CIRCUIT

Preparing for his new seat in the KZ category, Schumacher was testing his Tony Kart at the Lonato circuit in Italy and - reportedly - his lap times were "very good".

Meanwhile the Kolner Express reports that - with Hermann Tilke on board as designer - Schumacher has commissioned a new World championship-standard kart circuit near Cologne.

"We will build the best track in Europe," Gerhard Noack was quoted as saying.

Tilke confirmed: "The plans are ready."
