Barrichello set for 500-mile karting challenge
The Gran Vjana 500 Miles race will be held on a track belonging to Rubens' wife Silvana.
Opposition for the Ferrari driver will come from 2000 Fedex Champ Cars winner Gil de Ferran, while Champ Car driver Tony Kanaan and Felipe Giaffone (a relative of Silvana) will be the other drivers in Barrichello's team.
The race starts at midnight on Saturday and will finish on Sunday morning at 11.30.
