Giovanni Minardi is pleased to welcome James Egozi. The young promise of American Motorsport, born in 2007 in Miami, starting from this season will be followed by the Faenza Manager who will make available his experience accumulated in over 30 years of career, which began in 1996 in the ranks of the Minardi F1 Team.
Archived a 2021 in continuous and constant growth that ended with the conquest of the WSK Open Cup Title in OKJ, for James a new international karting season opens in the selective OK category at the wheel of the new Tony Kart Racer 401 RR powered by Vortex, engine division of the OTK Kart Group. Parallel to the karting activity, James will begin to look at the world of formulas, with a few days of testing at the wheel of Formula 4.
Giovanni Minardi “I am very happy to start working closely with James as I consider him one of the best talents in karting. It has been a long job, but I am proud to have reached this agreement and to be able to start this collaboration. He lacks nothing to emerge. He has the speed, human skills and the determination to achieve important results in the international motorsport scene. This year, in addition to the karting program, we will also start working on the single-seater front with several days on the track at the wheel of Formula 4 accompanied by simulator sessions.
James Egozi “I am thrilled to be working alongside a world-renowned name like Minardi. In the short time we spent together, we built a great relationship. This year I will continue to drive for the Tony Kart Racing Team with a complete program that includes the WSK, RGMMC and FIA events in the OK category. I will also start preparing for the F4 tests with day sessions at the Wave Italy Simulator Training Center. After winning the title of the WSK Open Cup 2021 and a great experience in the FIA World Championship in OKJ, this year’s goal is to continue to improve my palmares with an eye to the future, aimed at the world of single-seaters. With the help and support of Giovanni Minardi I will be able to build the foundations to achieve all of my goals.”
