Too young to start in Karting?

Postby AutoSport » June 11th, 2010, 7:19 am

Ferrari takes on 11-year-old
10/06/2010 08:43

Ferrari has accepted the youngest ever recruit to its drivers' academy, 11-year-old Canadian Lance Stroll.

Stroll, from Montreal, has twice won the Canadian national karting championship in the Rotax Mini Max category.

Last year, he finished sixth in the World Finals at Lonato in the Mini Roc category and second in the Rotax Micro Max Florida Winter Tour.

In 2008 Stroll was nominated by the Federation Sport Automobile du Quebec as Rookie of the Year in 2008 and Driver of the Year the following year.

Luca Baldisserri, who runs the Ferrari Driving Academy said: "He is very young, but he has already shown in karting that he is exceptionally talented."

Remember Lewis Hamilton's history.....started at age 8, was doing quite well then, and as we would say, he was real bold face and at age 11 or 12 approached McLaren's team boss and say he wanted to race for them.

I am currently attending the University of the West Indies where i am studying Mechanical Engineering. For my final year of study i will be doing a project on go kart design and build. I would like to talk to someone if possible to get some ideas and tips as to how i should proceed. I tried to contact someone through the TTKA website but it doesnt work. I am aiming to design and build a go kart for children/juniors that will meet the required safety and technical specifications and that can be used to compete in your races. You can contact me at this email address. Any information that you can provide me with will be greatly appreciated.
Thanking you in advance.
