Sergio ‘Checo’ Pérez, like so many of his counterparts, began his racing career at a very young age in karting. In 1996, aged just six years old, Checo finished his first season in second place overall with four victories in his class.

That was a sign of things to come for Checo, who went on to win in Master Kadets, Shifter 125cc and became the youngest driver to win a competition in the Shifter 80cc class.
