Eddie Lawson shines in Super Karts

MotoGP Legend Eddie Lawson was back on track on Saturday afternoon at Laguna Seca to enter the eagerly awaited Yamaha and GE Superstars of Super Karts race alongside former riders Kevin Schwantz and Doug Chandler.

Showing that he still has what it takes, the former World Champion took third in the event behind Damien Payart and Kyle Martin, while Schwantz and Chandler took 6th and 16th respectively.

"I'm pretty happy with this result, even if I had trouble with the steering of my kart from the very start of the race," explained Lawson, who started from pole position. "The race didn't go as well as I had wished, but given the circumstances, I'm satisfied with third."

Lawson, one of the most successful 500cc riders of the 80's, was yesterday inducted into the MotoGP Hall of Fame during a ceremony held just before the MotoGP qualifying session.
