Michael Schumacher, Sebastian Vettel, Nico Rosberg, Lewis Hamilton, Fernando Alonso, Jenson Button, Ayrton Senna, Mike Wilson and Alain Prost have one thing in common: their career began with Karting. The entrance of motor sports for many young people and a real kindergarten for racing talents. A sport in which boys and girls compete on equal terms.
Karting is a great school of life for young people and the best way to learn about driving and racing. The breeding ground for the future car Champions, Karting is also practiced by enthusiasts who devote all their energy to it. The FIA Karting Championships are open to drivers from the age of 12, with no upper age limit.
The spectacle provided by Karting events has an intensity rarely seen in motorsport. The closeness of the track, a succession of races throughout the weekend, constant suspense and the beauty of the struggle for victory make it an exciting discipline to experience for both specialists and the general public.
How karting started
Invented by the US in the 1950s, Karting quickly became a great success in Europe and today is a fully-fledged motorsport discipline.
Although the kart is basically a machine of simple design, the high standard of Competition makes it a very high level sport where ultra-competent professional teams confront each other.
There are World Championships, European Championships, International Super Cup and Academy Trophy in five categories animating the FIA calender held in six European countries from April to September. A very filled up karting season!

Driver: Isabella Rapezzi Dahl
My name is Isabella and I was born in Florence, Italy.
I inherited an extraordinary passion for motorsport from my dad and my mom who thought well of introducing me to the gokart world after I stole my dads tractor to ride in the garden when I was 3 years old.
Last year I made my debut in the world of gokarts in the Cadetti category, I belong to the motorclub in Enköping, Sweden. This year I got my license in the Micro category where I competed some races in the regional championship.
My gokart is a PDB Falcon with a 95cc raket engine. When I'm not competing, I train a lot, the whole family is committed to preparing the races and we give our best, the season is pretty short here in Sweden.
