We are pleased to announce that the Swedish driver born in 2008, Milla Sjöstrand, becomes part of the large Minardi Management family.
Milla has participated in various Championships in Sweden up until this year and finally in 2024, she will participate in a Championship outside of Sweden.
We decided together with her to participate at the Rotax Dutch Championship, divided into 8 weekends between Holland, Belgium and Germany, and then in 2025 take part in an even more international Championship, in preparation for the car debut in the 2026 season. Moreover, another fact which makes us really proud to have her on board is, that she was selected three times to participate at the FIA Girls on Track Rising Stars, both in the category Junior and Senior. An evidence that she is on fire!

Giovanni Minardi: “I am very happy that Milla is joining our Agency and that we are adding another pink quote to the team.
Milla has shown on several occasions that she is a very fast girl and with the program we are building I hope we can show it to everyone very soon. Milla has a beautiful attitude on and off track and she presents a very interesting package for the female world of Motorsport”

Milla Sjöstrand: “I am happy to announce that I am working together with Minardi Management. Minardi Management is working on giving me the best conditions, both now and for the future. I am excited for what lies ahead and and sure we will find the right route towards my dream of racing at the highest level. This year I am racing in the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium with Team Kartstore Benelux supported by MP Motorsport. It’s a big challenge to race there against drivers who have grown up on those tracks, but I enjoy a good challenge. I am sure what I learn this year will be a big asset to me in the future, and Minardi management is an important part of it”.


Minardi Management and the Kosmopoulos family begin a collaboration of management for their two children Jason and Nefeli.
Jason will participate in 2024 in the WSK Championships and the Italian Championship in the Mini category, and we are extremely excited to see him already racing in January here in Italy! Regarding Nefeli, we are deciding at the moment together with her parents beside her commitment at school the possibility to race internationally and at which races and championships she will participate in 2024.

Giovanni Minardi: “For me it is a huge honour to collaborate with the entire Kosmopoulos family. They are a family that live for motorsport by managing a karting team, a karting academy and soon a brand new karting track in Greece. I felt from the first time very familiar with them and with the same ideas and visions in my mind. Jason, I noted the first time last year at the end of the season here in Italy on track and I was immediately impressed by his performance, his excellent attitude and his natural driving ability. I am sure, that this young man from Greece will rock the Mini category this year in the WSK and Italian Championship. Instead regarding Nefeli, I am extremely excited to start working also with her this year. Nefeli will be the third karting girl in our agency and I strongly believe that we can collect many successes together. We as a management believe strongly in the girls power on track and are very happy about the last developments regarding girls and women in the world of Motorsport. We together with Nefeli will try to equilibrate this sport one more time.”

Jason & Nefeli Kosmopoulos: “We are very happy to start a collaboration with Minardi Management for the season 2024 in Mini Gr.3 and OKJ, and we are sure that we can obtain fantastic results together.”

Giovanni Minardi: “I thank Gian Cavaciuti for the magnificent proposal that made us keep Benji in his team. I am sure that this year Benji will be one of the protagonists of the Mini ROK world. We will aim to be on the podium every race weekend and above all we will aim to obtain an excellent result in the Superfinal in October.”

Benjamin Westwood: “I’m happy to be driving with GP Racing as a team driver for the ROK Cup Championship in 2024.

Minardi Management is proud to announce that the driver from Piacenza, Pietro Bagutti, has become part of our family.
Pietro in 2024, will jump from Mini where he achieved excellent successes in the OKNJ category racing in the WSK Championships and in the Italian ACI Karting Championship, together with his team Gamoto of Salvatore and Vincenzo Gatto.

Giovanni Minardi: “We are extremely happy that another Italian talent is joining our agency; I have been chasing Pietro for years and now I have finally managed to close an agreement with him. I am sure that even if this year he begins a new adventure in the OKNJ category, he will immediately be competitive and equally certain that he will bring home many excellent results.”

Pietro Bagutti: “An extreme honor to start my “first year” and I hope an important path in the next OKNj category with Minardi Management and Team Gamoto, all extremely important figures in the world of Motorsport with the prospect and ambitions of being able to maximize my potential and above all my passion that Motorsport has been my priority for years, even though study and school are another fundamental goal in life because knowledge of the world is fundamental.”


We are pleased to announce a change of jersey for Markas Silkunas, he leaves Gamoto to join CRG Factory Team. After an excellent 2023 with a 3rd place in the FIA Academy and the victory of the Lithuanian Championship, Markas has finally earned entry into a factory team where he will participate in all of the most important Championships, such as the WSK, Champions of the Future, CIK FIA European and CIK FIA World Championship.

Giovanni Minardi: “I am very happy to have managed to bring Markas to CRG, because they have great material for the OK category where he will compete, as well as having very experienced and fast drivers who will be able to help him grow quickly. I’m sure we can do great things.”

Markas Silkunas: “I am very happy that i have this great opportunity to join CRG factory team. I hope i will have a great relationship with all staff and teammates, which will help me to achieve great results with the new chassis. Thank you for all support from my family and Minardi Management. I will do my best!”

Kaïs Aziza’s 2024 season starts with the renewal with Team Gamoto. The Swiss driver has decided to continue the partnership with the Sicilian team, after an excellent second part of the season 2023 together, to aim the victory in the Italian ACI Karting Championship and top positions in WSK races in the OKNJ category.

Giovanni Minardi: “I can’t wait to see Kaïs back on track, I see him fired up and 150% motivated and I’m sure that the 2024 season will be his consecration as a fast and very talented driver. We all should never forget that Kaïs has only 5 races under his belt in the Mini category, 5 races in the OKNj and 2 in the X30 Junior. Despite his lack of experience in the international karting scene, he has always performed incredibly strong in all races at which he has participated. Now in 2024, the time has come to climb to the top step of the podium.”

Kaïs Aziza: “2023 was a big lessons for me, after not even a year in international races, I was able to obtain very good results.
Next year I am happy to continue the adventure with Gamoto, Dorothea and Giovanni. A big thank you to my family, my sponsors and everyone who believed in me”.

We all believe in Kaïs’ talent and potential and we are certain we can achieve important results!!
Special thanks go to Kaïs’ family and Giovanni Minardi (Minardi Management) for their trust! Thank you!”

The 2024 program will be full and tight of commitments between tests and races. François will participate at the most important karting races in Europe like WSK, Champions of the Future, CIK FIA European and CIK FIA World Champions as well as some trophies.

Giovanni Minardi: “After an excellent end of the season for François in CRG, I strongly wanted him to stay and to continue his growth in the team from Lonato. I am sure that we will be able to achieve excellent goals for next season. François immediately had a great feeling with their material right from the first laps, as well as with the whole team and so why we should change. We will begin from a very good starting point and will push all together for the best results possible.”

François Kerdal: “I am thrilled and delighted to continue racing with CRG, be part of this amazing team and keep setting and achieving new targets together also in the year to come. I feel proud in CRG colours and I am looking forward to see what the next season will bring!”

We are pleased to announce that the driver Achille Rea will also be an official driver of the Tony Kart Racing Team in the Mini category in the 2024 season. The Frosinone standard-bearer will be busy full time in 2024, with a busy schedule of races.
He will participate in all the WSK races, the Italian Kart Championship, the Trofeo delle Industrie and the Margutti Trophy.
It will certainly be an intense year for Achille and we hope it will be full of success.

Giovanni Minardi: “I am extremely happy to have reached this agreement and I thank Mr. Robazzi and his daughter Erica for giving us this opportunity, in order to give continuity in Achille’s growth, as a driver and as a young boy internally in the Tony Kart family. I think it’s the best place for him to be, because there are so many people full of experience who can only help him grow in the right way.
I am convinced that it is the right choice for him and at the same time I am certain that Achille will be one of the drivers to beat next season.”

Giovanni Minardi: “I am really proud of Vanesa, after all the sacrifies she made in this long 2023 season, and at the end she could manage to achieve the most important goal and win the most important selection for girls at her age in the Motorsport. She worked so hard both, on the track and in the gym, day after day for the whole season, and deserves this victory more than anyone else.
Vanesa has always shown that she has speed in her veins and I’m happy to finally see that we were right and that also FIA, FDA and the ACI Federation School confirm this.

Giovanni Minardi: Julia’s entry represents another important and beautiful challenge for Minardi Management. We will work hard to bring Julia to the highest levels of Motorsport, because we are convinced, following the actual tendences in the world of Motorsport, that girls will give an unplus value to this mainly male sport, even more girls like Julia, who has all the characteristics and the talent to do well.
