Vita

So let’s some up some key points about how when and why I started motorsport.

So my dad and me had a deal back in elementary school that if I had an average grade of 80%, I would get a reward. You know I was this little ADHD kid smart enough but just not able to sit still for 30sec therefor I just needed a little extra motivation. So in my last year of elementary school I managed to stay seated for like 45secs and finally got this 80%. My reward was a motocross bike and 2 weeks later after the first time I got on it I did my first race. Really that is where my competitive life started and where I put down my roots.

For safety reasons after a surgery Motocross wasn’t an option anymore so we opted for a safer type of motorsport at the end of 2008. On my 13 th birthday it found myself for the first time ever in race kart.

I started racing karts in 2009 and moved my way up the ranks never repeating a category.
