Wii Fit Goes Racing

Okay, we know the Americans don't quite understand the quality of F1, but they have done something pretty special this weekend in both NASCAR and Indy 500.

Wii Fit will become a part of racing history when the Wii Fit-branded cars race in both the Indy 500 and the NASCAR Coca-Cola 600 this Memorial Day weekend.

NASCAR: Chip Ganassi Racing's number 40 Dodge, jointly sponsored by Nintendo and Target, will be driven by two-time Daytona 500 winner Sterling Marlin.

INDY 500: Chip Ganassi Racing's number 16 Dallara Honda will be driven in Indianapolis by Alex Lloyd, who is making his Indy 500 debut.

Excellent, now why didn't Lewis Hamilton get a trendy Wii Fit make over when he won the Monaco Grand Prix?
