My first lap in a kart is still vivid in my memory, as if it were yesterday. I was at San Pancrazio, in Parma, on a track that no longer exists. It was a rainy day.
Obviously, I was there accompanied by my father and a collaborator of his, who was a mechanic. I had a "Cadetti" kart (it was the entry-level class at the time), a Birel with a 100 cc Parilla engine.
