Karting Australia has celebrated National Volunteers Weeks with a big thank you to those who volunteer and contribute to the sport of karting. Here are the backgrounds of some karting volunteers from around the country.
A Belgian living in Italy for the past 15 years, Cash van Belle has worked with many great drivers in the sport and is currently the Team Manger at IPK which manufacture the Praga and Formula K brands. He spoke with the FIA about karting and life in Italy at the moment.
Faced with the COVID-19 pandemic, Sweden chose a different path to its European neighbours. FIA Karting spoke with Magnus Hedman, President of Kristianstad Kart Klubb, host of many international karting events.
A professional driver for the Formula K brand with Italian manufacturer IPK, Jeremy Iglesias has also started his own team in France. FIA Karting spoke with him about what he’s doing in the current situation.
The Team Manager of the Birel ART Racing Team since the beginning of the 2019 season, Luca Filini had the honour of leading the famous Italian brand to victory at the KZ World Championship last September.
Until 2019, he was the most successful of the drivers still competing. But the Italian Marco Ardigo has chosen to end his career at the age of 36, after more than two decades at the highest level of competition.
