My name is Christian, and I’m a kid who loves auto racing, fast cars, and the coolest toys in the world! For as long as I can remember, I was always fascinated with Hot Wheels, remote control cars and any toy that moved fast. When I was 3, I would go up to strangers and ask to see their car keys so I could identify their brand of car by the logo. When I was 5, my dad took me to see The Grand Prix of Baltimore, and I loved it. The roar of the engines and seeing Indy cars racing through the city was more fun than anything I had ever seen before! I met several professional racers including Indy driver, Anders Krohn (“The Viking”) and IMSA GT drivers, Humaid Al Massaood & Steven Kane from the Oryx Racing team. Three months later, I took a 2-day class to become certified to drive Pee-Wee Go Karts. I emailed all three racers about my progress and they all wrote me back, encouraging me to continue to learn racing. Humaid and Steven complimented me on my line and apex skills. Anders Krohn even put my photo on his Twitter page.
The following Spring, my parents bought me my very own Birel Kid Kart. Now I love to follow racing, especially Formula 1, Indy, LeMans and Go Karts. When I am not in school, playing video games, or hanging out with my family, I try to race my Go Kart as much as I can. In 2013, my family went to the island of Jamaica for vacation and I got to drive on a track there and was coached by professional racer, Peter Rae. It was one of the best days ever for me! My favorite cars are not only professional race cars. I also love to see fast, exotic cars on the streets, at car shows and on the web. My favorite street cars are the Bugatti Veyron, Lamborghini Veneno, Ferrari Enzo and the BMW M6.
After I turned 7 years old in 2013, I graduated to a larger, Cadet kart. I loved the increased speed in the bigger kart and as much as I loved driving my kid kart for over 2 years, after driving the new Rotax MicroMAX kart, I never looked back. I also own a second go kart with an IAME MiniSwift engine.
I am now 10 years old and I am steadily racing in the North East in the Rotax Max Challenge regional and The F-Series State Championship club series. I also began competing on a national level in the WKA Manufacturer’s Cup and I have mostly finished in the Top 10. KidzSpeed has grown to feature interviews with champion kart racers, motorsport professionals, celebrities, events and kids from all over the world. We have a new series called “Tips From Pit Lane”, where professionals and champion drivers give advice to young racers.
