The 2019 International karting season is coming to an end, but the Tony Kart Racing Team does not stop and, in view of the next appointments, is proud to introduce the 3 new drivers joining the team: Lorenzo Travisanutto and Pedro Hiltbrand for the OK category; Aiden Neate for OKJ.
Two out of three, actually, are not “newcomers” as they already used OTK material in the past. The Spaniard Hiltbrand, OK world champion in 2016, wore the colours of our official Racing Team in the 2017 season, winning also the WSK Champions Cup. Being familiar with our group will be an additional advantage helping Pedro in being ready from the very first race: the WSK Open Cup taking place in Lonato from 24th to 27th October.
On the same occasion, another driver will make his debut under our tent: Lorenzo Travisanutto, two-time OK world champion in 2018 and 2019. Also the Italian driver, born in 1999, is familiar with the Tony Kart chassis, as he used it both in the 60 Mini class and in the next few years. In particular, with a Tony Kart powered by Vortex he won the WSK Super Master Series in 2016. All these experiences grew Travisanutto up making him, during the last two seasons, one of the greatest protagonists of the international karting, winner, besides the 2 world Titles, of the 2018 WSK Final Cup, the Winter Cup and the 2019 WSK Euro Series. For sure, this represents an added value for Tony Kart, further strengthening its line-up for the races in the direct-drive classes.
Among the youngest of the OKJ category, instead, the English Aiden Neate will make his debut with us in Lonato. This will be his first international adventure, after proving all his potential in the UK, conquering a few podiums and a victory in the Round 5 of the IAME Cadet British Championship. For him, Tony Kart is the ideal environment where he can grow and develop as a driver.
