Interview with Costa Miguel
A) WHEN DID YOU START YOUR KARTING CAREER?
My father gave me an electric kart when I was two and we used to drive every weekend in front of our house in the Marina. By the time I was three, I had a real Go Kart and we went to the local track every weekend. I never looked back.
B) WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE KARTING LEVEL IN EUROPE?
It's simply the best in the world. Last year we raced our first race in Europe. I was still nine and I remember there being 100 kids. I thought I could do well, and my father said how we were there to make it to the final. If we managed to do that, it would've been impressive. I remember thinking he was crazy and that I needed to do better than that, but he was right. I ended up qualifying for my first final on my first attempt. I was P22 in Sarno and it was one of the best moments of my life. After that weekend I kept telling Papi that one race in Italy was like 10 in USA, and that I wanted to come back. That'show racing in Europe started and again, I never looked back. Even though the distance, money and time away from school and my father's time away from work make it really difficult, it's where you need to be if you want to make it in this sport in Europe.
