Lando Norris launches his own kart – LN Racing Kart

Returning to his roots, Lando Norris has launched his own kart in cooperation with karting giant OTK, named the LN Racing Kart.

Coming from a strong karting background, McLaren Formula 1 driver Lando Norris has announced the release of his very own line of karts.

Like many drivers, Norris got his thirst for racing during his early karting days. The now 21-year-old would go on to secure the World Karting Championship at the age of 14, the youngest ever to do so.

Partnering with OTK over the last year, who Norris raced with during his championship season, has seen the LN Racing Kart now come to fruition.

“Karting is where it all started for me, I won my first world championship on OTK’s FA Racing Kart and I can’t wait for the day when someone wins their first championship on the LN Racing Kart,” Norris said via Twitter.

“Bring on the future talent! Let’s do this @LNRacingKart, OTK & RFM.”

Norris’ announcement sees him join a growing list of F1 drivers who have thrown their hat in the ring of producing karts for up and coming young racers. The most notable of course being Fernando Alonso.
