For people in their thirties or younger, “Tony Kart” is just a brand, as they say in marketing. Yet, in the beginning, “Tony Kart” was a nick name. It was how everyone called Antonio Bosio, a brilliant gentleman from the little Italian town of Prevalle. In no time, town folks took to calling him Tony and turned his passion for karts into a sort of last name. Put the two together and you get “Tony Kart”.
Tony, born in 1923, loves mechanics and speed. And he has a gift that goes above and beyond the elementary school diploma that marks the end of his studies. In the ‘50s, his gift takes shape in the construction of a kart, his first. The inspiration comes from a photograph from an American magazine. He is confident, because he has already built something similar: the home-made “emergency vehicle” mounted on four Vespa wheels that he uses to help broken-down tractors in the farms around where he lives.
