It’s all about racing

He decides to get a go-kart for his 16th birthday from his family. He started racing go-karts February 2012 with no experience what so ever behind a wheel. With a limited amount of race craft he had in his first race, he was in the back of the field however slowly but surely he improved on all aspects such as: vision, car control, data analysis, feedback, proper race line under wet or dry conditions and lastly but not least his driving skills which only continues to grow. He started to practice and compete more and more and a year later in the same championship with the best driver of the states, Alejandro left with a podium position and a heavy favorite to win the championship. Over the months Alejandro has developed a profound love for the sport. When the helmet comes off, Alejandro enjoys doing what most teenagers do; spending time with his family and friends, playing soccer, snowboarding, mountain biking and R/C cars. Balancing a busy racing life, alongside school and personal life can be challenging for anyone.
