Sunday 6:45 am, the alarm clock rings. ÈIt’s the first stopwatch you listen to, but you’re not surprised because you’re already awake and it’s when you can start talking about speed. You get out of bed and make a first effort to show how calm you are, aware that the mythical cold blood of the champion is a perpetual ambition. For the time being, the only cold you feel is the floor under your bare feet.


“Passion cannot be described; it can only be lived.” (ENZO FERRARI)

The day begins with a routine that helps consolidate your being ready, starting from the garage where the van is packed and ready. You check that the load is complete and you start off: the journey foresees fuel stops and breakfast. You eventually reach the circuit, which brings its first emotions and a certain restlessness as to where to pitch your tent, that is: garage. A gazebo three meters by three, a homemade workbench and some colorful toolboxes and your garage is set up and made. Without wasting time, you check that the kart is in order because the mysterious pre-race nights when something decides to fail are apparently not so rare. At this point, the team is ready: your father, who is the sponsor, your mechanic, timekeeper and a spy in his free time – and you: the race driver. Before we really get going, I’d like mention the weather just briefly: there is normally the naturally incompatible claim or belief that the Sun shines due to this sport’s intrinsic technical reasons, and so the paddock is full of meteorologists, and unless you are tormented by unresolved problems regarding your set-up so that there is nothing for you to do but try a rain dance, you go along with the commonly shared wish for sunshine.
