TALKING TO... This month we’ve had a chat with several protagonists of the season. MIR owner Mr. Bruno Mazzeschi tells us about MIR 25th anniversary, the last 20 of which have been almost exclusively dedicated to karting. We spent a fantastic day with him on the site and we discovered the history of this family run business, always at the top of sports wear business. Then it was Jussi Kohtala’s turn, boss of Finland based Kohtala Sports team. After 16 years racing career, Jussi started his own business as team manager, helping young Finns to reach the spotlight of international karting. He promised he'd have one of his drivers taking the World title, sooner or later! Also, we found Pierce Running Wild, not literally of course! The Wildkart driver told us about his brilliant relationship with the Pozza brothers, and gave us a little preview of what’s to come. And how could we miss a chat with Marco Ardigò, now that he has so much to talk about...

CLOSE UP A great anniversary has to be celebrated in great style, and French chassis manufacturer Alpha Karting (1977-2007) did just that. We took on insight thanks to Benoit Bremond, Alpha Marketing director.
