Felipe Massa and Rubens Barrichello were among the F1 stars racing in the 500 Milhas de Kart Granja Viana 2008 this weekend.

Barrichello won the race for a record eighth time – while Massa proved his reliability problems in 2008 weren’t just confined to his Ferrari. Here’s a selection of videos from the race:

Barrichello won in a kart shared with ex-Jaguar/Prost F1 racer Luciano Burti and IRL star Tony Kanaan. Massa finished third, sharing his kart with brother Eduardo and ex-GP2 race Xandhi Negrao. Christian Fittipaldi, Raul Boesel and Antonio Pizzonia were among the other ex-F1 drivers participating in the race.

Felipe Massa usually runs a karting race of his own during the F1 off-season which many Brazilian motor racing star compete in, and Michael Schumacher has also appeared at.
