Tony Kart Racing Team becomes Ferrari Driver Academy’s Technical Partner
The Tony Kart Racing Team will begin its work as Technical Partner in cooperation with the Ferrari Driver Academy (FDA). The Tony Kart Racing Team, as part of the FDA project, will focus its activity on young kart drivers with promising futures, as well as identifying new talents and testing their skills, while contributing to their training and professional development.
This is a real partnership where Tony Kart Racing Team and the Ferrari Driver Academy join forces: Tony Kart Racing Team will select and develop karting drivers for the FDA, with the aim of turning them into F.1 drivers. Commitment in karting is absolutely necessary for top teams and manufacturers: McLaren signed a contract with Lewis Hamilton when he was racing in karting, ex Lotus F.1 team set up a karting program, and now Italian firms like Lamborghini and Ferrari have set up their own program.
Roberto Robazzi - OTK Kart Group President
"I am honored to announce OTK’s cooperation with Ferrari Driver Academy.
We will give our support by working at our best with these young drivers. This engagement will require perseverance and foresight, two traits which we have always been trusting and investing in as Tony Kart.
Becoming partners with the FDA for this prestigious project, which is fully aimed at the training of only the most talented drivers, makes us both delighted and honored.
I wish to thank Ferrari for involving Tony Kart in the FDA project."
