Sad news has arrived in the last few hours: Angelo Parrilla, a leading figure in international karting and co-founder of the DAP, passed away on Friday 14 April 2023.
Together with his brother Achille, in 1970 he built the historic Milanese company, initially focused on the production of engines for karts and, subsequently, also on the design and production of chassis. In a short time, the DAP established itself among the sector leaders of the time and became one of the main protagonists on the track, in the most prominent competitions worldwide.
Angelo Parrilla was also the one who, among the many pilots who passed under his guidance, "discovered" and brought a young Ayrton Senna to Italy, establishing a deep friendship with him as well as a winning sporting partnership.
The condolences of the TKART editorial staff go to the Parrilla family.
