MOUNT Martha kart racer, 13-year-old Mathew Basso, has claimed another title, winning the 2023 Australasian Kart Title after competing in the KA3 junior heavy class in the Goulburn Valley.
Basso competed against some of Australia’s best junior drivers and was the only driver out of all the other classes to qualify, lead, and win every single race all weekend.
He was also selected as the commentator’s driver of the weekend for the 2023 Australasian Titles.
Announcer Aryton Creagh, who interviewed Basso after the race, said the young driver “is undoubtedly one to keep an eye on throughout the rest of 2023 and years to come as he continues to develop in his junior career”.
His father Paul Basso said it was a busy time for his son, with an event in Portland before going to South Australia for the that state’s championships.
