Embarking on My Karting Journey:

A Passion Ignited
- Season 2015 -


Motorsports had always captivated my attention, thanks to my father, who would frequently take me to races and rallies. As I watched the cars zooming past, my heart would race with excitement, and a burning desire to get behind the wheel began to take hold of me. I would eagerly ask my father when it would be my turn to experience the thrill of racing. Little did I know that my journey into the world of karting was just around the corner, ready to ignite my passion for this exhilarating sport.

Discovering the Joy of Karting:

My first taste of karting came during a visit to Lydd International Track, where karting enthusiasts could rent bambino karts for a spin. It was an opportunity for me to take my first steps in this adrenaline-fueled world. As I gripped the steering wheel and accelerated, a surge of exhilaration coursed through me. From that moment, I knew I had found my calling.

Taking the Leap:

In 2015, I made a decision to dive deeper into the world of karting. This marked the beginning of my more serious involvement in the sport. I enrolled in the Little Hornets Academy, eager to learn and grow as a karting competitor. The academy provided the ideal platform for me to hone my skills and compete against fellow aspiring racers.

A Remarkable Start:

Incredibly, in only my second race, I achieved an accomplishment that surpassed my wildest dreams. Crossing the finish line, I found myself standing on the podium, securing a remarkable third-place finish. The sense of achievement and fulfillment that washed over me was indescribable. It was a moment that solidified my determination to pursue karting with unwavering passion.

Season of Learning:

As a novice, I fully embraced the season as an opportunity for growth and development. It was not without its fair share of challenges, as I made mistakes along the way. However, I quickly learned from each setback, continuously improving and refining my racing skills. With each race, I gained more experience and steadily climbed up the ranks.

Triumphs and Reflection:

Despite the steep learning curve, I stood on the podium multiple times throughout the season. Each achievement served as a testament to my dedication and perseverance. The season drew to a close with a commendable third-place finish in the academy, reinforcing my belief that I was on the right track.


My early years in karting have been nothing short of exhilarating. From my first taste of karting in Lydd to my remarkable podium finish in the Little
Hornets Academy, I have discovered a passion that drives me forward. As I reflect on the challenges and triumphs of my journey so far, I am filled with excitement for what lies ahead. Karting has become more than just a sport to me; it is a way of life—an adrenaline-fueled adventure that fuels my dreams and propels me towards achieving greatness.
