MOUNT Martha 12-year-old Mathew Basso travels the country to race go karts.
Basso has just wrapped up the 2022 karting race season by taking out the six-race Victorian country series, which saw competitors travel all around state.
The win adds this title to his Australasian Kart Title, Ultimate Club Racer Title, second place in the Northern Territory championships, second in the Junior Top Guns State Cup and his first place at the Oakleigh Club championships.
Basso competes against racers up to 16 years in the KA4 Junior Light Class, where they race 100cc engines and reach speeds of up to 110kph all while sitting just a few centimetres above the asphalt. In 2023, he will compete in the Australian Karting Championships against Australia’s best karters.
