30 Years In Karting - Forè Aims For Title Number 6Tweet
Thirty years spent in karting: this is the enviable achievement David Forè, CRG official diver, is celebrating this year.
He is about to face once again an exciting end of season, with another international event in his long career: the forthcoming KZ1 World Cup in Sarno, on the International Circuit Napoli and, in less than one month, the final round of the KF1 World Cup in Macao.
The list of honours won by Davide Forè is enviable: he is among the drivers with the longest career in international karting and among the most winning ever. So far he has won 5 World titles and a European title (4 Formula A and F. Super A World Championship, a Super Icc World Cup, a European Championship in Formula A). His activity is still in full swing and so, this year too, he is among the favourites for the success in the two world title in this end of season: the KZ1 and the KF1.
"I started when I was 8, making my debut in the Giochi della Gioventù (a sports event for youngsters)" recalls David Forè, "and I haven't stopped ever since. I think I'm still in a good moment of my sports career. I feel fit and I think this is the most important aspect when approaching a race, because it gives me confidence. I still feel I'm very motivated; my goal is achieving Mike Wilson's record of 6 titles, and after all karting is my first concern after my family, I can't do without either of them. This is the reason why I don't mind making sacrifices and the hard training I have to undergo. I still have a great will to win."
Q - You have been CRG official driver since 2009. Which are the most peculiar aspects of your collaboration?
Q - What has changed in these 30 years of karting?
“There have been many changes. I've seen all kinds, shapes and sizes: from the years with the air-cooled 100 engine then water-cooled, the best period for karting because it was much followed and there were many skilled drivers, Italian talented drivers too, to the present time, where from the point of view of regulations they have changed all - and in my opinion things have got much worse, especially since the introduction of the KF engine. They have tried to enforce rule after rule, and the consequence is that driving a kart is getting simpler and simpler, which prevents veritable talents from growing up.
But, above all, what really lacks today, at human level, are experienced people on the track whose experience can be a great example for the young talents. For me it was essential watching the skills of great drivers such as Danilo Rossi, or Jarno Trulli. On the other hand, nowadays, there are 15-year-old kids who think they are already first-rate drivers. I think it would be essential for young drivers to remain in karting for a longer time, because they need to get more experienced before passing to car-racing."
“As usual my goal is victory. Let's see what happens; for sure I'll do my best to grab my sixth World title, in Sarno or Macao."
