I have only been karting for 4 years; mostly at Victory Lane Karting. I starting racing outdoor karts recently and have raced at Go Pro Motorplex, Atlanta Motorsports Park, Daytona International Speedway, and soon the Roval Road Course right here in Concord, North Carolina. I believe in fair, honest, and rightful racing. I enjoy a challenge, as well as competition. This will be the first world karting championship that I have ever entered and I am looking forward to it!

My first two years playing college soccer, our team could not win.
We had more talent and worked harder than any other team in the league, but lacked the confidence that every team needs to be successful. Half-times usually saw us on the losing side. Coach would huddle us up and point to the other team high-fiving and celebrating their lead. His halftime speech would go like, “look at those guys, they’re pumped to be up two-nothing on you guys, they’re high-fiving each other. Its High Five City over there.” Coach used High Five City as a taunting phrase of encouragement describing what we didn’t have, but we wanted to earn. HIGH FIVE CITY was the chant that ushered our team from silent bus rides home to unruly Saturday night celebrations. After a championship win against the unbeaten league favorites, HIGH FIVE CITY was established.
High Five City is the victory path, the glory land, the place you only get to through hard work, hustle and dedication.
My karting trajectory started at the age of 16 when I began training in a local indoor karting track in Colombia. While taking my first steps and showing potential for this sport I continued exploring it in outdoor karting, participating in Rotax max Challenge Colombia, in which I got the third place in my first professional championship. Nowadays, I entered X30 Challenge Colombia in which I am looking forward in taking part of the World Championship in Las Vegas. In addition, I have been training regularly focusing in the KWC championship in order to deliver my best and continue learning. As a conclusion, I found in racing my passion and I am working very hard in order to fulfil my dream in making this my occupation, plus reaching the highest spheres.
I started driving dirt-bike when I was 3½ years old.
In 2015, when I was 11 years old I tried out driving gokarts.
And I loved it!
