Lando Norris announces the launch of its own karting team
Lando Norris has announced that he has collaborated with the OTK Kart group to launch his own karting team, named LN Racing Kart.
Norris became the youngest karting world champion when he won the title in 2014, ahead of Nikita Mazepin, now Haas driver, and Jehan Daruvala, now Red Bull junior driver.
The McLaren driver said he has been working on the launch of LN Racing Kart over the past year and made the announcement on Tuesday as he looks to provide opportunities for the next generation of drivers.

He wrote on Twitter on the ad: “Karting is where it all started for me, I won my first world championship on OTK’s FA Racing Kart and can’t wait to see the day someone wins his first championship on the LN Racing Kart.
âBring in future talents! Let’s do this @LNRacingKart, OTK and RFM.
Norris joined Fernando Alonso to launch his own karting operation, the two-time world champion having opened a circuit in his native Asturias in Spain.
