To kart, or not to kart?

Posted on 16th December, 2021

In January 2021 Roy took an important decision to stop karting.


Around age 13 such commercialised sports require full-time commitment for competitive success.


So should we give up on his schooling and other sports (skiing is forbidden in youngsters’ team contracts) and go to live next to a kart track, maybe Lonato by Lago Garda in Italy?


Roy said: “Frankly, Dad, I love my life here too much for that, and I want to aim at university, not a low percentage chance of succeeding as a professional race driver or ending up as a kart mechanic.”
