Today begins a series of interviews with the pilots who started their motorsport career in Easykart. Let’s start with Alessio Rovera, current champion of the Porsche Carrera Cup Italia.
Tell us about your Easykart experience
Alessio Rovera: “Easykart represents a lot for me, because my first absolute competitive experience was in Easykart. I ran a couple of races in 2007 with Mirko Fossati’s FM Competition and the goal was to gain experience in view of 2008 – my first full season in Easykart. In 2009 I won the race in Nizza Monferrato, what good memories! It was a positive experience because I learned a lot during those two years – knowledge that was very useful to me in the following years. “
How did your career continue after Easykart?
AR: “In 2010 I played the Rotax Max championship and I finished third overall in Italian; in the following season I raced in KF2, repeated experience also in 2012, and I won the Lombardy regional championship. In 2013 I went to compete in single-seater and I immediately won the Italian Abarth championship; in the following two years I ranked in the top six in both Formula Renault Alps (2014) and Euro Formula 3 Open (2015). In 2016 I won the third overall in the Porsche Carrera Cup Italia – a championship won last year thanks to four wins, nine podiums, three pole positions and six fastest laps. Moreover, in 2017 I got on the podium of the Porsche Carrera Cup Le Mans, a side race of the FIA WEC 24 Hours of Le Mans. “
AR: “I will play the French Porsche Carrera Cup championship: we already had a test day at Magny-Cours last March 20th and it went very well. I can not wait to get back on track for the second session scheduled on 2-3 April and the first round of the season will be on 4 and 5 May, during the 6 Hours of Spa. We are also working to make a appearance in Porsche Supercup in Monza, during the weekend of the Italian Formula One Grand Prix in Monza. Fingers crossed!”
