The official announcement was made yesterday, and today, Thursday 30 September 2021, Lando Norris visited the Adria Karting Raceway for a press conference, lots of photos and close contact with his young karting fans.
Like many other F1 drivers, Lando Norris now has his own brand of karting chassis, LN Racing Kart. Jarno Trulli, Fernando Alonso, Robert Kubica and Charles Lelclerc were ahead of him in this point.
What is special about the way of the young British talent who is exploding in F1 at MacLaren is that he wanted to pay tribute to the team that accompanied him to win the 2013 European Junior Championship and the World Championship for KF (now OK) in 2014. Ricky Flynn was honoured for his contribution to Lando’s rise in motorsport. Behind the LN Racing Kart brand, RFM has a strong presence. First of all, it is a complete range of chassis produced by the market leader in competition, Roberto Robazzi’s OTK Kart Group, such as the FA Kart chassis that Lando drove during his high level karting years.
Already popular on the networks with their innovative graphics, the LN Kart colours are unmistakably reminiscent of the RFM team. This devastating look combined with Lando Norris’s youthful, smiling and humorous personality makes for an explosive combination. No doubt the 21-year-old Briton’s future success in F1 will reflect on the karting community. Lando has been very candid about his on-track driving and also in the paddock, under the cameras. There is also talk that a racing team bearing his name will be launched.
Lando Norris spent some time at his former team, Ricky Flynn Motorsport, with the boss and mechanics, who were visibly delighted, and made it clear that this is where it all started for him. Here is a photo gallery of this great moment.
